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 sightseeing, museums, breweries, nightlife, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: tour the pleasant surroundings at St. Stephen's Green, don't miss a visit to The Book of Kells and the Old Library Exhibition, admire the landmark architecture of Saint Patrick's Cathedral, and sample the tasty concoctions at Guinness Storehouse.

For reviews, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Dublin travel itinerary planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from Dartmouth, Canada to Dublin. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Dartmouth to Dublin due to the time zone difference. In May, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Thu) early enough to go by car to Kilkenny.
