More about Dublin:


Big city infrastructure, transport, culture, entertainment and choice but with a small town feel. Most things in Dublin are within walking distance of each other, and directions are easy to follow, with the River Liffey as a safeguard reference. The river crossing as the reason settlement began here thousands of years ago. Molded since then culturally, linguistically and architecturally by Celtic, Viking, Norman and English influences, Dublin today is one of the most beautiful examples of Georgian order imposed on Viking and medieval clutter, while retaining the charm of all three. This authentic and friendly European capital is steeped in history at every turn, and is renowned as one of the best nights-out in Europe.

Where to stay in Dublin:


Dublin is a small city. Even hotels described as 'outside' the city centre will rarely be more than a 20 minute walk away, no more than a few minutes by taxi, tram or bus. Luxury hotels, budget hostels and B&Bs all share the same neighbourhoods. For convenience to everything stay around O'Connell Street or Temple Bar, but remember these are busy areas day and night so can be a little noisy. Merrion Square is home to many top hotels. Gardiner Street hosts a lot of B&Bs. You will find mid-range accomodation (from $70 to $100) all over the central region of Dublin.

Weather in Dublin:


Due to its location on the east coast of the island, Dublin is the driest place in Ireland (it might not seem like it, but it is true!). June, July and August are the warmest months with average high temperatures around 20° (occasional daily temperatures can reach the high 20s), and December, January and February are the coldest with average low temperatures around 4° (occasional daily temperatures can fall below 0°). May and September offer pleasant weather with average highs in the high teens. Remember Dublin is a port, and Ireland's weather in general is heavily affected by wind and can therefore change very quickly. Be prepared, and dress accordingly. In summer there is daylight until after 9.30pm, in winter only until 4pm.
