An ancient capital city, Dublin was founded on the banks of the River Liffey by the Vikings and became Ireland’s capital at the time of the Norman invasion. The city is packed with historical sites and monuments and visitors to our holiday homes will be spoiled for choice by the many tours on offer which range from Dublin Bus’ ‘Hop On – Hop Off’ tours to walking tours of the city and Segway tours of Phoenix Park to the raucous Viking Splash Tour to name but a few. These tours take visitors around many of the city’s best known landmarks which include Dublin Castle, Trinity College (home to the Book of Kells), the National Gallery of Ireland, the Dáil (Ireland’s houses of parliament), Collins Barracks, Farmleigh (the Irish President’s residence) and the Guinness Storehouse. In addition to these well known sites, there are a variety of quirky visitor attractions such as the Leprechaun Museum, the Wax Museum and The Little Museum of Dublin.

Visitors staying at our holiday homes in Dublin will be spoiled for choice when it comes to deciding what to do in the evenings. While there is a huge choice of trendy clubs and bars, the traditional Dublin pub is world famous! Dublin boasts a wide variety of restaurants which include Michelin starred L’écrivain, Chapter One and Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud and if you are looking for something less formal, the city has an endless choice of eateries, bistros and cafés which cater for all budgets and tastes.

Dublin has always been a great music hub being home to such music giants as U2 and Thin Lizzy. There is a huge variety of music venues, the best know of which are Vicars Street, The O2, the Sugar Club, the National Concert Hall and the RDS. The city is also thought of as the spiritual home of Irish Theatre and for a comparatively small capital city, it has a surprising concentration of theatres which include The Abbey, The Gate, The Olympia and The Gaiety not to mention an array of smaller, less formal performance spaces. Our vacation rentals in Dublin are the perfect weekend base for those attending a performance being within easy reach of all the city's major venues.

Many visitors to Dublin are drawn to the city by a sporting event. The city is home to the world’s oldest rugby ground – Lansdowne Road, now home to the Aviva Stadium which hosts Six Nations, Heineken Cup and Rabo Pro matches every year.

No visit to Dublin is complete without seeing what the city’s shopping outlets have to offer. In addition to the main shopping areas such as Grafton Street and St. Stephen’s Green which are home to well known high street stores and designer labels, Dublin has a wealth of quirky and unusual markets and arcades such as Powerscourt Townhouse, Georges Street Arcade, Cows Lane Market and Temple Bar Food Market all of which offer something a little special.

Although there is so much to see and do in Dublin City, visitors should not neglect exploring Dublin County. The Dublin coastline is readily accessible to the north and south by DART (suburban train) and indeed most of our Dublin holiday homes are within walking distance of a DART station. Malahide, Howth and Dun Laoghaire are particular favourites for days out with their picturesque marinas and excellent seafood restaurants. The Dublin Mountains can be reached in no time at all by car and offer spectacular views of the city and coast together with some lovely walks of varying difficulty.
