Over the past two decades Dublin has gone from being called “dirty Dublin” to becoming a modern European city without losing the grip on its Irish roots. From June 2015 WOW air will offer cheap flights to Dublin all year round.
Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland and the country's biggest city, is the center of everything Irish. Whether you're looking for fun nights out, a great place to shop or a city filled with Irish history and culture, Dublin is the place to go. Here you'll find all the major chains and compartment stores, they have a special district full of Irish pubs and Dublin also has a long and interesting history as it was founded by Vikings in the 9th century.
Dublin has a very stable climate. During the coldest month the temperature rarely goes below 0°C but ranges between 5-8°C. In the summer months the average temperature is around 19°C, perfect for shopping, and it's good to know that the Irish summer lasts well into September.
Flights between Iceland and Dublin only take ca. 2 hours and from Dublin Airport there's a 10-15 minute bus ride to downtown Dublin.
Dubliners use the Euro when they buy stuff and you should too when you're in Ireland.
Dublin is a lively city with options for everyone. Do you want to shop, check out the Guinness Museum or have a night out at the Temple Bar? It just so happens that Temple Bar and the main shopping district in Dublin aren't that far from each other so we recommend that you begin at the Guinness Museum, if not to have a taste of the world famous beer and learn about its history then just to enjoy that magnificent view of the city from the 7th floor bar.
The best way to get into town from there is by a horse drawn carriage, indulge yourself and see more of the city while you're at it. The best places for retail therapy in Dublin are Grafton Street and Henry Street. For many a trip to Dublin isn't complete without a visit to St. Patrick's Cathedral, Ireland's largest Cathedral which has an interesting history. Speaking of history, don't forget to visit Trinity College, a fabled school and one of Dublin's most iconic buildings. Inside is one of the most beautiful libraries in the world which stores many famous manuscripts such as the Book of Kells.
Ireland is known for being green and there's no better way to explore the magnificent nature of the Emerald Isle than taking a tour and exploring the magnificent scenery. We especially recommend a trip to Glendalough and Wicklow.
Whatever you decide to do or see in Dublin just remember that what makes this city so great is the atmosphere and the Irish people. Have fun!
