The Travel Tester Guide to what to do in Dublin and the surrounding region.
The capital of Ireland is more than just a place to score a pint of Guinness. There is a special vibe hanging in the streets that you can only understand when visiting yourself.
The city has a passion for music, is well-know for her friendly people and has succeeded in blending the modern developments seamlessly with her long history. And of course there is always time to have a good craic, so make sure to join in the fun and experience this breath of fresh air!
How to Get to Dublin: From London, direct flights to Dublin go several times each day, for example with Aer Lingus, CityJet, RyanAir or British Airways. From Amsterdam, you can fly directly with Aer Lingus and since a few weeks also with RyanAir! Flight time is under 1,5 hours, can you believe it?
Where to Stay in Dublin: I had a great stay at the Dean Hotel in Dublin. The room and rest of the hotel had a funky design and the restaurant served amazing food (it’s order from menu at breakfast, so allow yourself some extra time). While it can be a bit noisy in the room due to the many nightclubs in the street, the bed is super comfy and they provide earplugs for a good night’s sleep.
