5 attractions no Dublin day trip would be complete without

We'd recommend doublin' your time in the Irish capital, but if you really do have just a day to spend here, you'll have some great craic (pronounced: crack) working a day tour around these five Dublin faves!

  • Christ Church Cathedral

    1. Christ Church Cathedral

    St. Patrick's is also worth touring, but if your excursion coincides, don't miss medieval Christ Church's choral evensongs on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and weekends.

  • Phoenix Park

    2. Phoenix Park

    Europe's largest walled city park is home to Áras an Uachtaráin–home to the Irish president. You can also enjoy a wander around the People's Gardens and the old Magazine Fort.

  • Dublin Castle

    3. Dublin Castle

    This unusual castle off Dame Street is worth visiting for many reasons, not least because its garden was once home to the Dubh Linn (dark pool) that gave the city its name!

  • Kilmainham Gaol

    4. Kilmainham Gaol

    Kilmainham is the place to visit if you want to learn about Ireland's struggle for independence. Now a museum, many significant revolutionaries were imprisoned and executed here.

  • Dublin Writers Museum

    5. Dublin Writers Museum

    In a city of exemplary museums, you might only have time for a quick one. Why not immerse yourself in its great literary reputation by learning more about Joyce and Yeats, et al?

Planning Your Visit

  • How to get to the city center from Dublin cruise port?

    The cruise port is just over a mile from the city center, and there is an express bus service that should only take about 15 minutes. Visitors can also take the number 53 public bus, pick up a cab at the taxi rank, or even take a hop on hop off bus directly from the terminal for an easy jaunt around the sights and then back again!

  • How to get around Dublin?

    Dublin's public transport system can be pretty tricky for newcomers to grasp. Fortunately, most areas of interest can be reached pretty quickly by foot. If you really plan on cramming a lot in (and can afford it!) then you'll have no problem hailing a cab. Be aware, though: as well as the initial fare, an extra euro will be added on per passenger.

Our journey was unforgettable thanks to the beautiful place that we visited but importantly the amazing guide Bud. Even during the long tour it wasn't boring even for a second and other than being a guide he is a historian. Also he's an amazing driver and has a good humour. Other than the Giants Causeway he organized a Black Taxi for us, his timing was great. Bud stopped at beautiful places so we could take pictures and he cared for his passenger and asked if it's too cold or hot. At the end we sang Molly Malone :)We're really thankful and are looking to our next adventure with yous! Thanks Bud!

It is a very well organized, concise combination of nature, land scape, culture and history. The tour guide (Anthony) is super friendly and knows a lot about Ireland's history. The timings are very well organized. The coach is comfortable and the driver is nice :). If you are in Ireland for a short time and you want to make most out of it, I recommend this tour.

I had an awesome tour yesterdy with anthony and pete. Although the weather is bad, but it wasnt a hindrance to have an exciting tour in killkenny and in the glendalough..

Great tour! Our tour guide/driver, Don, gave a great balance of humour and history. Would recommend to anyone here on a few day break!

It was just not what I expected in fact it was more than that. Loved it and enjoyed every bit of it. Thank you very much.
