25 things to do in Dublin Travel Guide

So this week we’re excited to be exploring Dublin and we’re planning to spend an entire week here. This video is going to highlight 25 things to do around the city. Dublin is where most trips in Ireland begin, so before seeing the rest of the country, Audrey and I spent a whole week getting to know the capital. When the weather cooperated we walked around the city, toured Trinity College, and visited the botanical gardens, and when it poured rain as it often does in this part of the world, we just popped into a pub for some Irish stew and a pint of Guinness. The following video will show you a few of the different things to do in Dublin, Ireland.

25 things to do in Dublin Ireland | Top Attractions Travel Guide Video Transcript:

Trinity College was founded in 1592 and it is the oldest university in Ireland. The campus is open to visitors interested in touring the grounds, and you’ll also get to hear some fascinating stories of famous students, including the likes of Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift, and Bram Stoker.

The Guinness Storehouse is Dublin’s most popular attraction, and it’s a must-visit for beer lovers. The Storehouse covers seven floors surrounding a glass atrium shaped like a pint of Guinness. Inside you’ll also find a copy of the 9,000 year lease signed by Arthur Guinness on the brewery site – they won’t be going anywhere for a while!

Grafton Street is one of the main shopping areas in Dublin. You’re likely to find lots of musicians, buskers, and performers along here, plus you get a good vantage point of The Spire.

Prior to the establishment of Glasnevin Cemetery, Irish Catholics had no place of their own to bury their dead. This burial ground gave both Irish Catholics and Protestants a place where they could give their dead dignified burial, and it has since become the resting place for people of all religions and non religions.

Experience Gaelic Games is a place where you can come and try traditional Irish sports like hurling and Gaelic football.

The Old Jameson Distillery is the original site where Jameson Irish Whiskey was distilled until 1971. It is now a visitor centre that offers both guided tours and whiskey tastings.

Temple Bar is an area known for its lively nightlife. Located on the southbank of the River Liffey, you’ll find all sorts of pubs playing live music once the sun goes down. There’s also one pub in Temple Bar, called The Temple Bar, but don’t let that confuse you.

And that’s a wrap for our time in Dublin! We hope you enjoyed this video and that it gave you a few ideas of what the city has to offer. As always, if you have any other suggestions of fun things to do in Dublin as a visitor, feel free to share them in the comments below. Wishing you happy travels!

  1. The Brazen Head may be the oldest pub in Dublin, but Sean's Bar in Athlone is the oldest documented pub in Ireland (and possibly the world) by a long shot–dating back to the 10th century. There's only documentation of a pub on the site of the Brazen Head going back to the 17th century or so.

  2. Like the video. Other places to visit on an 8-day trip would be Howth, Killiney, Dalkey (inluding a trip across to Dalkey island), Bull Island and Korean food at Han Sung Asian Market on 22 Great Strand Street, Dublin 1 or Brothers Dosirak on 27 Capel Street.

  3. Thanks for highlighting some of the things to do in my city, Dublin has many good things and you guys have done a good job promoting that. Thanks again glad you enjoyed your trip.

  4. There is a whole a lot more to explore when you hop on a train to see Bray Head, Portmanock Beach, Harbor Howth…I cant even recall how many hours a day would walk in Dublin. Now i am in Calgary and scenery here is not even comparable. Thank you for such a warm video about this beautiful city.

  5. Awesome video. 8 days condensed into 15 min. That was FAST! Dublin is wonderful, but don't spend all of your time there. Don't go to Los Angeles and assume all of America is like that. Outside of Dublin is a totally different slower relaxing experience. Rent a car, but don't ever expect to park anywhere in Dublin.

  6. where you get the money at y'all's age to be able to travel like that you must be on drugs or sell drugs your wife is really ugly and annoying she needs a haircut she has no class no sense of class she needs to learn how to talk in and how to act with fine like the British in the Irish women do and the Welsh

  7. greetings for gray seat of Texas your wife is very annoying and skinny she needs a haircut her hair is very thin and straight ugly ungrateful woman how on Earth can you guys afford to stay a week overseas it takes like to grow almost a thousand a piece Dobbin to England and if that's how much it took for me you guys must sell drugs or marijuana users do you want her to say that kind of money just working jobs God bless you both and help you
