We've got just what you want if you're looking to visit the beautiful Irish city of Dublin, with our special hand-picked deals on fantastic weekend accommodation. With its roots in the 7th century when it was founded by Ireland's Celtic-speaking people, Dublin was later used as a settlement by the Vikings, then became Ireland's main city and port following the invasion of the Normans. There is history aplenty in Dublin, and so many sights for you to behold.
With our superb weekend deals, you'll be able to visit Dublin Castle, once the home of the UK government in Ireland and now used for state occasions and visits – such as the visit of the Queen. You can wander through Dublin's peaceful parks – such as Herbert Park and St Stephen's Green - and lose yourself in their tranquil greenery. You can visit the bustling shopping areas of nearby Grafton Street and load up on souvenirs to remember your visit by. And no visit to Dublin would be complete without a stop at the Guinness Storehouse – where you can watch a perfect pint of the Irish stout being poured (and sample it as well, of course).
Dublin has an enviable literary history, with notable names such as Jonathan Swift, William Butler Yeats and George Bernard Shaw having been born or brought up in the city. You will have the opportunity to visit Trinity College and the National Museum of Ireland, as well as to wander the streets of James Joyce's masterpiece Ulysses. If you're of a more sporting persuasion, be sure to visit the magnificent Croke Park (which hosts Gaelic football, rugby union and hurling), as well as the impressive Aviva Stadium and Dublin's One Day International cricket grounds. Then, of course, there are the theatres of Dublin if you fancy taking in a show - such as the Olympia, the Gate and the Grand Canal.
By booking one of our Dublin weekend-break deals, you can soon find yourself seated in one of the city's numerous traditional pubs and luxurious restaurants – tucking into some delicious Irish stew (made with potatoes, fresh vegetables and lamb), or drinking some lovely liquor-filled Irish coffee. Then, of course, there's the traditional Irish music, which is performed every day throughout the numerous pubs and music venues of Dublin – such as in the famous Temple Bar area of the city, which is home to a plethora of lively public houses and nightclubs.
