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: see the interesting displays at Kilmainham Gaol Museum, get a sense of history and politics at Dublin Castle, stroll around Phoenix Park, and contemplate the long history of Trinity College Dublin.

Halifax, Canada to Dublin is an approximately 10-hour flight. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Halifax to Dublin due to the time zone difference. In May in Dublin, expect temperatures between 17°C during the day and 7°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Kilkenny.
