With its striking architecture, fascinating history and welcoming spirit, it’s no wonder that Dublin is such a popular place to visit. Ireland’s capital is located on the east coast along the River Liffey, and whether you’re browsing museums, visiting the shopping districts, discovering world-famous breweries or photographing historic buildings, you’ll never be short of things do and places to see during your stay in this beautiful city.
There are two Jurys Inn hotels in Dublin, so you have plenty of choice when choosing where to stay. Our Christchurch hotel is located opposite a beautiful thousand-year-old cathedral, just a short walk from Temple Bar where you’ll find a wide range of bars and restaurants. Further north, Jurys Inn Dublin Parnell Street is close to O’Connell Street, and a quick journey on foot will take you to some of the city’s best shopping districts.
Start your day by taking a walk down Grafton Street before discovering the city’s many historic sights including Kilmainham Gaol, the National Museum of Ireland, Chester Beatty Library and The Book of Kells at Trinity College Dublin. Your trip to Dublin wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Guinness Storehouse, or if you prefer whiskey, take a tour of the Old Jameson Distillery.
For a breath of fresh air, take a walk through Phoenix Park or the National Botanic Gardens before spending the evening watching a show at the Olympia Theatre, seeing a concert at the 3Arena, or enjoying a traditional Irish stew at one of the city’s vibrant bars and restaurants.
If you’re staying in Dublin for a few days or more, take a day trip beyond the city to see more of what Ireland has to offer. Go and see Malahide Castle and Gardens, visit the National Sea Life Centre in Bray, or enjoy a day at Sandycove Beach. For outdoor adventures, hire a car and drive to Wicklow Mountains National Park to the south of the city.
