A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Dublin is known for museums, nightlife, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: examine the collection at Kilmainham Gaol Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Dublin Castle, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Jameson Distillery Bow St..

Plan my trip to Dublin with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Saint John in April since evenings lows in Dublin dip to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Kilkenny.
