Things To Do In Dublin

With both American Airlines and US Airways flights to Dublin, it's easy to visit the Emerald Isle and let the unique charm of the city captivate you. Dublin itself is sized perfectly for exploring on foot, especially if you're staying in the city, so you'll have convenient access to some of the best things to do in Dublin.

We recommend seeing it all with the Dublin City Hop-on Hop-off Tour, because you'll be able to get a good overview of all the activities in Dublin. You can get off the bus when you come to an attraction you'd like to spend more time exploring, then just get back on another bus when you're ready to continue on. It even goes to the Guinness Storehouse, which we think is a must-see. It's Dublin's top tourist attraction, and with good reason. Purchase a ticket and you can tour the historical building, located in St. James's Gate. You'll journey up the world's largest pint glass (really; it's part of the architecture) and learn to pour the perfect pint. Finish off your tour in the Gravity Bar at the tippity top of the building, where you'll enjoy amazing views of Dublin and the countryside from windows that wrap around 360 degrees.

Another one of our favorite things to do in Dublin is a visit to Trinity College to see the Book of Kells. This elegant and elaborately decorated tome contains the four gospels in Latin, and it was written around 800 AD. You'll be amazed at the intricacy of the designs.

We also like the Viking and Medieval Dublin Walking Tour, which includes a stop at historic Dublin Castle and its final remaining medieval tower. This tour is a great way to delve into the Norse history and legends of the Vikings who helped shape the city.

And, of course, one of the most picturesque activities in Dublin only starts in Dublin -- and that is renting a car and driving through the scenic Irish countryside. Spend a day exploring and you'll see what inspired so many eloquent poems and songs.

You don't need the luck of the Irish for an unforgettable visit here. You just need American and US Airways, because we make it easy to fly to Dublin and explore this welcoming destination.
