Dublin

A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Do your shopping at Brown Thomas and DesignYard. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Temple Bar, stop by Cherish Me - Luxury Mother & Child, enjoy the scholastic atmosphere at Trinity College Dublin, and browse the exhibits of Kilmainham Gaol Museum.

For ratings, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Dublin trip planning app.

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. Traveling from Rome to Dublin, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Rome in December, plan for little chillier days in Dublin, with highs around 10°C, while nights are about the same with lows around 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Kinsale.
