Founded in the 9th century A.D., Dublin grew from a Viking settlement into the capital of Ireland. Divided by the River Liffey, Dublin’s spirited nightlife and cosmopolitan vibe make it a favourite repeat destination for travellers. Book your flight to Dublin with Blue Air and explore illuminated manuscripts by day and Ireland’s oldest pubs by night.
Begin at Christ Church Cathedral, one of Dublin’s oldest buildings. Climb the belfry’s stairs, listen to one of Ireland’s finest choirs, and venture into the medieval crypt. Then spend a day exploring Dublin Castle. Tour the State Apartments, see the Prisoner’s Table, and venture into the Medieval Undercroft. Next, head to Dublin Zoo and visit endangered golden lion tamarins, Humboldt penguins, Siberian tigers and Asian elephants. The next day, go to the National Museum of Ireland and immerse yourself in the past as you explore jadeite axe heads, mace heads, and copper artefacts.
Spend an evening exploring the Temple Bar district. Grab a pint at a pub while listening to live music, taste your way through the microbreweries, or go to a club and dance the night away.
Attend a play at the Abbey Theatre, also known as the National Theatre of Ireland. Lose yourself in a musical or opera at the Gaiety Theatre. Hear the organist at the National Concert Hall or attend a classical concert.
