Things to Do in Dublin
Dublin has history, charm, sights, museums, galleries, theatres, shops, pubs, restaurants and an abundance of character. The name Dublin comes from Gaelic which means "black pool". The language spoken in Dublin is English. Street signs and official buildings are signposted in both English and Gaelic, the indigenous Irish language. The currency in use in Ireland is the Euro.
You cannot miss Dublin’s number one attraction, the Guinness Storehouse, established in 1759. Visit the original home of the famous black beer with the distinctive creamy head. Visitors will discover what goes into making a pint of Guinness – the ingredients, the processes, and the effort. The journey through the Guinness Storehouse ends in the Gravity Bar with a pint of Guinness and the best 360-degree view of Dublin. Attendees will also learn how to pour the perfect pint in the Guinness Academy. Upgrade your visit to include a Connoisseur Bar experience, an intimate session that takes place in a luxurious private bar where a Guinness Beer Specialist takes attendees on a sensory journey filled with tales and traditions.
Located in the heart of the city, the Dublin Castle was built as a medieval fortress in the 13th century and stands on ground originally occupied by an earlier Viking Settlement. Despite a major fire in the 17th century, parts of the medieval and Viking structures have survived and can still be explored by visitors today. The oldest remaining structure, the Record Tower, dates to the 13th century. The castle is open to the public seven days a week from 9:45 am to 5:45 pm. Admission to the castle grounds is free, but there is an admission fee for the State Apartments and exhibitions inside the castle.
St. Patrick’s Cathedral
St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the largest cathedral in Ireland, was built between 1220 and 1260. The Cathedral, one of the city’s few remaining medieval buildings, is dedicated to Ireland’s patron saint, St. Patrick. The Cathedral is world famous for its choir, which still performs daily during school term. Jonathan Swift, author of Gulliver’s Travels, was Dean of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in the 1700s and is one of many on-site burials. St. Patrick’s is open to the public every day (hours vary depending on the day to accommodate services).
The Book of Kells
The Book of Kells is a must-see for visitors to Dublin. Written in the early 8th century by Celtic monks, it is Ireland’s greatest cultural treasure and one of the world’s most famous, and beautiful, medieval manuscripts. The Book of Kells was deposited for safe keeping in Trinity College in Dublin in 1654. Visit the magnificent 18th-century Old Library to view this incredible manuscript. The exhibition is open seven days a week from 9:30 until 17:00 (16:30 on Sundays). Tickets can be purchased online or onsite.
The National Gallery of Ireland
The National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin, opened in 1864 and recently re-opened after a six-year renovation, boasts more than 2,500 paintings and approximately 10,000 other works in different media. Every major European school of painting is extensively represented, including a renowned collection of Irish paintings and works by Caravaggio, Monet, and Picasso. Admission to the Gallery is free. Open Monday to Saturday from 9:15 to 17:30, Thursday from 9:15 to 20:30, and Sunday from 11.00 to 17.30.
Very few taxis in Dublin accept card payments; ensure that you carry cash (euros) if you plan to hail a taxi. If you prefer to pay by card and you have a smartphone/tablet with Internet access in Dublin, you can use the Hailo or Uber apps to book a ride.
The initial fares for Dublin taxis are:
- €4.10 during the day from 8:00 to 20:00 for the first 1km or 170 seconds
- €4.45 from 20:00 to 8:00 and all day Sunday & Public holidays for the first 1km or 170 seconds
Although most taxi drivers are honest, beware of ’extras’ on the meter. The only extras due are second and additional passengers at €1.00 each.
Telephone Booking Fee for Taxis: €2.00. Bookings made with the Hailo or Uber apps from a smartphone/tablet incur no booking fee, but these apps cannot currently book a ride in advance. There are no extra charges for luggage or an airport pick up.
Aircoach departs up to every 15 minutes and stops outside our front door. Journey time both to and from the airport is approximately 40 minutes.
NOTICE: If you receive a call/email from a company offering to make your hotel reservation, we urge you not to use their services. While the rates may sound attractive, unauthorized companies typically require pre-paid reservations which include steep cancellation and change fees (reservations are usually non–refundable, and individuals are often moved to other lower quality hotels). Some individuals are looking for nothing more than to fraudulently use your credit card for other purposes - and you could potentially show up to the hotel to find you have no room. If you make a reservation with any provider other than the Clayton Hotel Burlington Road directly, our team will not be able to assist you with any problems you may encounter with the terms of a third-party agreement.
