Inspire Your Wanderlust

One of the world’s most walkable cities, Dublin is known for its upscale shopping, ancient castles, music, art, and literary contributions. Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats and James Joyce were all Dubliners.

Soak In Your Surroundings

Visit Dublin Castle

Dame Street, Dublin 2,

Dublin Castle, dating back to the 1200s, stands in the heart of the city. In 1684, a fire damaged a portion of the castle and in reconstruction, parts of it took on the look of a Georgian palace, accounting for its eclectic style.

Visit Trinity College

College Green, Dublin 2,

Founded in 1592 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth I, Trinity College is Dublin’s oldest and most prestigious university. Globally renowned for its Old Library, the school’s famous alumni include Jonathon Swift, Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde, and Samuel Beckett. Trinity College is a sister institution to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge in England.

Guinness Storehouse

St. James’s Gate, Dublin 8,

Arthur Guinness acquired the brewery at St. James’s Gate in 1759 and from that time commenced brewing of the famous “black stuff”, a stout with a distinctive creamy-white head. The World of Guinness Exhibition is housed in a converted 19th-century warehouse building. There is an audio-visual presentation on how the stout is made, an overview of Guinness advertising over the decades and finally a chance to taste the product in the breathtaking, glass-enclosed Gravity Bar.

The National Gallery of Ireland

Merrion Square and Kildare Street, Dublin 2,

The gallery is home to over 2,500 paintings and 10,000 other works that make up the National collection. There is an extensive display of Irish art including works by Nathanial Hone, William Orpen, William Leech and Jack B. Yeats, brother of the poet W.B. Yeats. In addition, every major European school is represented. Pride of place is given to a series of paintings from the Beit Collection generously donated to the gallery by Lord and Lady Beit of Russborough House.

Temple Bar

Fleet Street to Parliament Street, Dublin 2,

Temple Bar is situated between Dame Street and the river Liffey and stretches from the Bank of Ireland (Old Parliament) building to Christchurch Cathedral. The area was earmarked for demolition in the 1980s to make way for a central bus and rail station, but through concerted effort and protest it was saved and redeveloped as an entertainment and cultural quarter. At times victim of its own success, the 18th-century cobbled streets are home to a variety of bars, restaurants, and theatres.

Tour the Old Jameson Distillery

Bow Street, Smithfield Village, Dublin 7, Dublin 7

One of Dublin’s most iconic experiences is a tour of the Old Jameson Distillery. The guided experience covers the basics of whiskey distilling, but also provides a rich appreciation of the distinguished Jameson heritage. The tour ends with a sample tasting.

Explore Ballsbridge

Lined with trees and Victorian red brick houses, Ballsbridge — home to our five-star hotel, as well as embassies, award-winning restaurants and Aviva Stadium — was also the residence of groundbreaking writers (Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats, and James Joyce, among them). Wander the leafy streets, stroll through Herbert Park, explore the iconic Royal Dublin Society and make your way to the picturesque village of Sandymount with its long beach and promenade.

Shop Grafton Street

Shop for exclusive merchandise on Grafton Street, home to Brown Thomas, Ireland’s flagship department store. The famous cobblestone street runs from Trinity College to St. Stephen’s Green, and it is celebrated for its designer fashions, exquisite restaurants, and eclectic coffee shops.
