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: visit Temple Bar, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Jameson Distillery Bow St., see the interesting displays at Guinness Storehouse, and admire the striking features of Saint Patrick's Cathedral.

To find maps, photos, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Dublin trip itinerary planning tool.

Rome, Italy to Dublin is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and bus; or do a combination of car and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Rome to Dublin. Traveling from Rome in December, expect nights in Dublin to be about the same, around 3°C, while days are little chillier, around 10°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Thu) to allow time to drive to Kilkenny.
