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!
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.
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.
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 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.
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?
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!
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.

What People Are Saying About Dublin
We had a wonderful day seeing the sights. Our guide was knowledge and informative.
My group of 18 people enjoyed the mysterious forest and waterfall, the lakes and mountains, the fantastic beach and the cliffs. The pub in Killarney was perfect and so was our breakfast stop in Adare. We would have wanted our day to last more than 24 hours to stay longer everywhere!!! Magic tour!
It was a great tour but we spent little time in Drogheda. I would prefer to stop in Newgrange
The tour through the Wicklow Mountains was beautiful and full of great conversation from the driver who was full of facts along the way! I feel very fortunate he was the driver since he had a wealth of knowledge and great humor along the way!
Our guide was amazing. I think he was called John. Best tour ever, best guide, best ambiance!
