Your essential Dublin travel guide

Dublin tourism is at its peak on St Patrick’s Day when the city swells with revellers clad in green, but there’s much to do here all year round. In this thousand-year-old city you’ll find traces of Irish history, from the Medieval Dublin Castle to the bullet holes in the facade of the General Post Office. Escape the city buzz at Dublin Zoo, or join the wild deer in Phoenix Park. Visit the old haunts of literary giants James Joyce and Oscar Wilde, or meet the buskers vying for fame on Grafton Street. At dusk, head to a pub in the lively Temple Bar area. Sit back and enjoy a rousing performance of traditional Irish music with a pint of Guinness in hand. Slainte!
