A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Get some historical perspective at Kilmainham Gaol and Saint Patrick's Cathedral. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Kilkenny Castle and Dublin Castle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dublin: Bru na Boinne (in Donore) and Black Abbey (in Kilkenny). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Temple Bar, stroll through Phoenix Park, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Ireland - Archaeology, and see the interesting displays at Glasnevin Cemetery Museum.

For photos, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Dublin road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Dublin Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 58°F, and evening lows to 43°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
