New Voyage Privé —
Carefully selected by our experts especially for you
Your Destination —
Dublin has it all - a charming mix of medieval, Georgian and modern architecture, fascinating history, a legendary literary tradition plus all the cosmopolitan delights of a dynamic capital city. Amid Dublin's contemporary cityscape, however, it is still possible to find traditional pubs, nostalgic museums and even horse-drawn carts clip-clopping along cobbled streets.
Culture vultures are also spoilt for choice when it comes to museums and galleries. From the National Museum of Ireland and the National Library to the National Gallery and the cute Little Museum of Dublin containing the lectern that US president JFK used to address the National Parliament in 1963, there is plenty to absorb. Not forgetting of course the magnificent Dublin Castle dating back to the 13th century.
Some highlights include:
• Guinness Storehouse - Home of Ireland's most famous beverage
• Phoenix Park - Europe's largest enclosed city park
• Irish Museum of Modern Art - Ireland's leading national institution for the collection and presentation of modern and contemporary art
• The Chimney Viewing Tower, Smithfield Village - One of Dublin's tallest landmarks, providing panoramic views of the city
