25 things to do in Dublin Travel Guide

So this week we are excited to be exploring Dublin and we are planning to spend a whole week here. This video will highlight 25 things to do in 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 through the city, toured Trinity College, and visited the botanical gardens, and when it rains like it does in this part of the world, we popped into a pub for some Irish stew and a pint of Guinness. Video will show you some of the different things to do in Dublin, Ireland.

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

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

The Guinness Storehouse is the most popular attraction in Dublin, and is a must see for beer lovers. The Storehouse covers seven floors surrounding a glass atrium in the shape of a pint of Guinness. Inside you will also find a copy of the 9,000-year contract signed by Arthur Guinness on the brewery site – they will not go anywhere for a while!

Grafton Street is one of the main shopping areas of Dublin. You're likely to find a lot of musicians, neighborhood musicians and artists around here, as well as having a good view of The Spire.

Before the establishment of the Glasnevin Cemetery, Irish Catholics had no place to bury their dead. This cemetery gave Irish Catholics and Protestants a place where they could give their dead a worthy tomb, and since then it has become the resting place of 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 former Jameson Distillery is the original site where Irish Jameson whiskey was distilled until 1971. It is now a visitor center offering guided tours and whiskey tastings.

Temple Bar is an area known for its lively nightlife. Situated on the south bank of the River Liffey, you will find all kinds of pubs playing live music once the sun goes down. There is also a pub in Temple Bar, called The Temple Bar, but do not let that confuse you.

And that's a wrap for our time in Dublin! We hope you enjoyed this video and gave you some insight into what the city has to offer. As always, if you have any other suggestions of fun things to do in Dublin as a visitor, do not hesitate to share them in the comments below. Wishing you happy journeys!

This is part of our series of Trips in Ireland. We are doing a series of videos showing Irish culture, Irish food and Irish cuisine.

25 things to do in Dublin Travel Guide

  1. I just got back from Dublin and Ireland. My favorite thing I did in Dublin was visiting the crypt under Christ Church. It was beautifully creepy.

  2. Go to comedy at the International bar, it's on 7 nights a week. It's the home of Irish comedy for over 30 years.

  3. It's not pronounced Kilmainham (Gale) it's pronounced Jail. The Irish version of the word is Gaol but it's still pronounced the same.

  4. Never go to Temple Bar it's a fucking kip, you get charged near twice the regular price for a pint in that's small area of the city! Go check the place out of course but it's pretty much a tourist trap, walk a few mins up the road and you'll find a much nicer and cheaper pint

  5. Greetings from Ontario. I like your videos. Watched quite a few. Am going to spend 3 days in Dublin and 6 days on tour in a bus from Dublin to other parts of Ireland. I found your video interesting as I am trying to cram a lot in just 3 days for Dublin and your video has given me a headup. Just wondering if the hop-on bus is worth it or just a waste of money due to traffic. Thanks for the video.

  6. one place that was missed that I enjoyed (and maybe it's further down in the comments idk) is the little museum of Dublin! it's near st stephen's green and has a lot of history of the pop culture of Dublin for the 19th and 20th century.

  7. Super groovy travel video as usual Sam and Audrey. I will be in Ireland on July 1st. I'm very excited. I will check out many of those spots

  8. for frensh
    i like culture irland
    i have a culture food french
    my english isn't good in moment
    bye bye

  9. how bout just skip Dublin
    spend your time seeing authentic Ireland instead not the cesspool of urbanites yuck.

  10. And Phonies Park is home to are president Michel D. Higgins my friend got to meet him LUCKY and she was on the news not the point

  11. Don't EVER go up and kiss the Blarney stone..
    The Locals Piss all over it at night to Fuck with Tourists

  12. Kasia Oelofse from Dublin has a Jewish husband and son with him. This son is blond and have Nordic face but the truth about him is that he is a Jew. This little Jew when asked in Jewish Juice way about his origin claims to be Juice. And somebody helps him in this game. But remember he is a Jew. It is proven and I am Kasia Oelofse brother, and I know that her husband has Jewish origin. They said once to me that Ireland is the place to have blond Jews pretending to be the juice and I know that Ireland should know that they are Jews.

  13. The oldest bar in ireland is actually in my hometown of athlone 🙂 seans bar est 900a.d. Great video though 🙂

  14. I'm spending my January vacation in Dublin and I'm really glad that Google Trips recommended your video. I loved it! 🙂

  15. The Brazen Head is not the oldest pub in the country, Sean's bar in Athlone is the oldest pub in the world from 900A.D.

  16. The Brazen Head – probably THE most touristy pub in the whole of the city (The area of Temple Bar too.) To get some real genuine Irish pub atmosphere and meet Irish, these places are to be avoided, The Irish for sure don't go there and besides the "Temple Bar" in Temple Bar – on rip-off of a place, where two pints of beer and two packets of crisps cost 20 quid…

  17. Hi. You are a lovely couple .Glad you enjoyed your stay, it's a pleasure too watch your Tour of Dublin. Go Raibh maith agaibh. ( Thank Ye )

  18. DONT GO TO DUBLIN!!!! IF you're thinkin of visiting a European city, I would highly recommend countless others over Dublin, trust me…I used to live in it. The only two things its good for are nightlife…if you want be around 1000's of highly intoxicated people OR if you're an animal lover… the Zoo is quite good. Other than that the place is an absolute dump, the streets are filthy, terrible traffic, homeless everywhere, more than likely to be pissing rain… even in the summer! Try Barcelona, Prague, Berlin, Paris,Brussels, Rome, or pretty much any other city! Cheers
