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.
Shop till you drop at James Joyce Cultural Centre and Cogs The Brain Shop. Do some cultural sightseeing at Guinness Storehouse and Kilmainham Gaol Museum. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Temple Bar, look for gifts at Cleo Knitwear, contemplate the long history of Trinity College Dublin, and walk around Phoenix Park.

You can plan Dublin trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Seattle, USA to Dublin is an approximately 13-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 8 hours traveling from Seattle to Dublin. Traveling from Seattle in August, things will get slightly colder in Dublin: highs are around 66°F and lows about 51°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Kilkenny.
