Whether you fancy hitting up the museums, taking time out in a park or even climbing up a mountain, there’s something that’ll steal your attention around every corner in Dublin. And the Irish capital’s relatively small size means it’s pretty easy to navigate, too – in the city centre, nothing’s more than 30 minutes’ walk away, and if you venture further then the Luas (tram) or Dart (train) is a handy way to explore the rest of the county.
Don’t be tempted to pack too much into your schedule, though. Dublin may be small, but it’s best discovered when you have no agenda, and can follow your nose down a side street, or into a dinky café for a flat white and chat with the barista. If you’re still planning your itinerary, here’s our pick of the best attractions and things to do in Dublin right now.
