TO DO & SEE  

Our favorite part of traveling to a new city is usually just wandering the streets, getting a feel
for its local personality. While you're out meandering in the city,
these are our three must-visit stops:

 

ST. STEPHEN'S GREEN
This little oasis is located in the middle of Dublin's city center. With tree lined sidewalks and a quiet lake, this park is the perfect respite from the
bustling city.
TRINITY COLLEGE
A trip to Dublin wouldn't be complete without a visit to Trinity College. Famous for it's magnificent library that houses the Book of Kells, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to Hogwarts for the day.
TEMPLE BAR
On the south bank of the River Liffey, you'll find the Temple Bar district. This is Dublin’s destination for the ultimate pub crawl. The narrow alleyways are packed with places to grab a pint and listen to live Irish tunes. You’re also sure to bump into a few stag and hen parties while you’re there.

    

TO STAY 

From quaint, charming row houses to ultra-modern hotels, Dublin has plenty of lodging 
options for setting up camp during your stay here. A few of our picks: 

 

THE DEAN
Think NYC’s Ace Hotel with some of the best rooftop views in the city. From its contemporary rooms to its happening lobby and rooftop lounge, this is place to stay if you want to be at the center of Irish design and nightlife.
AIRBNB
Nestled right in the heart of the Ranelagh neighborhood, this charming townhouse is just steps away from coffee shops, restaurants, and bars. But, you may end up opting to stay in – with a warm fireplace and spacious living room, it's  the perfect spot for cozying up on chilly Dublin nights. 
THE MARKER
Located in the "Silicon Docks" area, next to the Google and Facebook headquarters, this futuristic hotel fits right in with this hip neighborhood. Be sure to grab a drink on the rooftop bar - they reserve couch spots for hotel guests. 

 

TO EAT 

In a country known for its countryside and farming, Dublin’s restaurants are taking
farm-to-table to new levels. A few of our favorites serving up the best local, fresh ingredients:

 

THE WINDING STAIR
Named after the famous Yeats poem, this charming restaurant is located right on the Liffey River overlooking the iconic 
Ha’penny bridge. Known for its simple, "home cooking," you can't go wrong with your order. 
THE FUMBALLY
This light, airy industrial café is attached to a yoga studio with the same name. Featuring fresh salads, sandwiches, juices, and brews, it’s the perfect place to spend an afternoon. On Wednesdays, they stay open for dinner and serve up a special themed spread.
INDIGO & CLOTH
For an afternoon pick-me-up, stop by this pretty little shop for a coffee and pastry. And bonus, while you’re sipping on your Clement & Pekoe brew, you can browse their modern menswear boutique upstairs.

 

TO DRINK 

From the classic pub to wine lounges and rooftop cocktail bars, Dublin has got you covered when 
it comes to raising a glass. A few of the spots we'd recommend: 

 

GROGAN'S
The #1 place locals recommended for a pint and toasties, Grogan’s is everything you’d want in a traditional Irish pub. The pours were generous, the people were friendly, and the bar was designed for conversations (no TVs).
FOREST & MARCY
Grab a glass of vino and some light bites at this TINY neighborhood “wine room.” Featuring local, seasonal ingredients, this spot gives you a taste of the best of Irish cuisine. 
THE DEAN
For a drink with a view, head up to the hotel's rooftop bar, Sophie's. With its relaxed vibe and craft cocktails, it's the perfect place to take in the sweeping views of the city.
