Stay : A weekend in Dublin

A simple and fun way to explore the city is to set up a two-storey bus with a guided tour (audioguide to support). These buses cover several routes and will make you discover the main sites of the capital. Not really original, but it can save you time. In a weekend you can have a first glimpse of the wealth of the city.

Day 1: Discovering Dublin

Steps: Dublin

Arrival at the airport at the end of the day. Enjoy the first evening to walk along O'Connell Street, Dublin's main avenue, and soak up the city's past as you admire its statues, old post office and architecture. Then cross the River Liffey to reach the lively Temple Bar district. At the weekend, the young and festive atmosphere is in full swing; head to one of its bars: The Auld Dubliner, The Temple Bar, Turkey's Head or Oliver Saint-John Gogartys... to drink a pint of Guinness, of course.

Day 2: Irish Treasures

Steps: Dublin

After a traditional Irish breakfast, discover Trinity College, which has seen some of the greatest names in national history grow up, and see The Book of Kells (if the queue isn't too long). Opposite Trinity College is the imposing Bank of Ireland. Then walk down Grafton Street, Dublin 's shopping street, to St. Stephen's Green Park and explore Georgian Dublin around Merrion Square or Fitzwilliam Square. In the afternoon, visit St. Patrick's Cathedral and Christchurch in the medieval quarter. Afterwards, take a well-deserved rest in a pub or, if you still have energy, head to theold Jameson Whiskey Distillery (near Smithfield Square on the north bank).

Day 3: Tradition

Steps: Dublin

The day begins with a visit to the must-see Guinness Storehouse (Saint James Gate), which ends with a pint of the famous Irish beer in the panoramic bar with a breathtaking view of the city. Then go to the left bank (north bank). A stroll along the quays will take you to Custom House, Dublin's customs building, which has now been converted into a museum. As you walk up O'Connell Street, take the time to enter the post office to view the paintings depicting the building's history. A 10-minute walk away, Writers' Museumyou will become aware of the city's literary past and its evolution over the centuries. If you have time left (and it doesn't rain), you can end the day in Phoenix Park, the largest city park in Europe.
