Destination guide

Amazing days in Dublin

From the crooked drinking holes of cobbled Temple Bar to the straight-laced elegance of Georgian Dublin, Ireland's capital is brimming with draws. Days can be spent unraveling the story of literary greats like Joyce and Heaney. They can be spent tasting whiskey between the copper casks of the distilleries or watching muscle-bursting rugby showdowns in the stadiums. Dublin vacation rentals are also the perfect base for exploring the eastern Emerald Isle _ think mythic castles and salt-sprayed beaches.

Things to do

Drinking in Dublin's sites

The smoky, roasted stout of the Guinness Storehouse are always beckoning visitors to the Irish capital. Immersive tours of the old brewing facility and tasting sessions in the panoramic Gravity Bar combine to create one of the top-rated attractions in town. Tales of Yeats and Shaw and Joyce await in the Dublin Writers Museum on Parnell Square if you're not too tipsy after your ales. Or, there's the living museum of Dublinia & the Viking World, where bearded Nordic folk, haunting skeletal remains, and runic poetry all reveal the more ancient side of the city.


Feel the old soul of Dublin

Dublin's a city with an old, old soul. Stroll its streets with dedicated guides to uncover a town that's steeped in myth and legend, rich in historical sites, and packed with tales to tell. There are ghost walks to get the spine tingling. There are heritage walks to showcase the gorgeous Georgian relics. There are literary walks out of the Duke Pub on bustling Grafton Street, which find the specters of James Joyce and Seamus Heaney in the cozy drinking holes. And talking of drinking holes, Dublin's nightlife is another must _ Gaelic folk music and poetry evenings abound.


Dublin's perennial pulls

In a city where the pulsing nightlife just goes underground when the cold winds and rains of the Irish winter come, there's never really a bad time to seek out Dublin vacation rentals. Summer, which runs from June to August, is the sunniest, driest, and hottest time of the year _ it's great if you're looking to see the beaches of the east coast, or sightsee through the streets. Fall, in October and November, has lower rates and less busy attractions. January, February, and March are there for watching rugby matches and sipping whiskeys in the fire-crackling pubs.

Natural features

Dublin is a gateway to the east coast

Dublin vacation rentals aren't just a ticket to the Georgian relics and old Viking builds of the Irish capital. They also offer a base on the wild, wind-lashed east coast of the country. Just a short drive from the center is the grass-topped cliff walks of Howth, where you'll catch seabirds on the rocky headlands, and can watch for dolphins in the Irish Sea. The Wicklow Mountains are also close. That's old Ireland of the faerie stories: A land of misty woods and cairns, where ancient woods mingle with hulking ridges.
