Dublin, Ireland Travel Guide Last Updated: Dec 2021

It’s hard to describe the progress this city has made in recent decades, and now Dublin is a major and popular stop on many European itineraries. This city is compact enough to enjoy in just a couple days if that’s all you have, and actually it’s better to spend more of your Ireland visit on other parts of the island anyway.

City tours and some of the more famous attractions are on the expensive side, but things don’t really get out of hand until you start with food and drink. Unlike, say, London, it’s hard to find a simple meal that you’d consider cheap. And even though Dublin now has a reputation as an international party city, be prepared to drain your wallet if you want to participate. Beers here are expensive and everything else is more. If you are going to be visiting the Guinness Storehouse and the whisky distilleries you’ll probably want to consider getting a Dublin Pass.
