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: examine the collection at Kilmainham Gaol, make a trip to Grafton Street, sample the tasty concoctions at Guinness Storehouse, and browse the collection at The Book of Kells and the Old Library Exhibition.

For ratings, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Dublin sightseeing planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from Carmel, USA to Dublin. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Carmel to Dublin due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Carmel in November since evenings lows in Dublin dip to 40°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Mon) to allow time to drive to Kilkenny.
