Dublin Tours, Vacation Packages & Travel Experiences


  • Temple Bar District is one of the most popular spots to visit in Dublin on all Ireland vacations.
  • Samuel Beckett Bridge
  • Dublin
  • Guinness Storehouse

Dublin is a fairly compact city and a great place to explore on foot when on Ireland vacations.  You will be immediately impressed wit the lovely Georgian style architecture as well as the interesting streets filled with landscaped gardens, small shops, restaurants, traditional pubs and picturesque public squares.  The city has a reputation for friendliness. Just stop anyone anywhere and you will be greeted immediately with great bonhomie. It’s no wonder Dublin has been voted “The Friendliest City in Europe” and is known as “The City of a Thousand Welcomes”. 

Interspersed throughout the city are some very attractive small parks and gardens which add a certain serenity and charm to Dublin.  Phoenix Park is a very extensive park and one of the largest in Europe.  It offers everything from a zoo to a small fort, a botanical garden, jogging trails and much more on  an Ireland vacation 

Dublin has a derived a well deserved reputation as a “literary city”.  Dublin has produced many exceptional Internationally acclaimed writers. One of its most famous is James Joyce who, in his works, has immortalized the city and its people.  The Dublin Writers Museum, which is well worth a visit, will remind you of how blessed the city has been with its large number of exceptional novelists and playwrights.  There is also a museum dedicated to James Joyce  which can be visited on Ireland trips.

The Abbey Theatre first opened its doors in 1904. Despite losing its original building to a fire in 1951, it has remained active to the present day. It was the first state-subsidized theatre in the English-speaking world. The Abbey has served as a nursery for many of the leading Irish playwrights and actors of the 20th century. 

For culture buffs, one must, on Ireland vacations, visit Trinity College library where the Book of Kells is housed. This book, believed to have been written around 800 AD, contains the four Gospels of the New Testament. Also the National Museum of Ireland will be a must for those interested in Archaeology. Imposing Dublin Castle, a landmark in the city, dates from the 18th Century although the site is much older. It was the seat of Government for the British until 1922. 

Other points of interest include the Guinness Factory or rather the Guinness Storehouse within the brewery where, not only will you enjoy a customized tour showing the brewing process but also the history of a company which dates back to 1759.  After the tour, one is provided with a complimentary “pint” in a 360 degree panoramic lounge with amazing views of the rooftops of the city.  The Jameson Distillery offers whiskey enthusiasts an opportunity to tour the distillery including a tasting.  Visiting a jail may not be on the top of everyone’s wish list but Kilmainham Gaol which is now a museum, played an important part in Irish history as many leaders of Irish rebellions were imprisoned and some executed in the prison. Who can resist a visit to a venue called the National Leprechaun Museum which is dedicated to Irish mythology and folklore. You will find yourself in a leprechaun-sized world and take a journey to the end of the rainbow to see if the elusive crock of gold really exists.

For evening entertainment, there are the many typical Dublin pubs almost all with their own individual character. One area specializing in evening attractions is Temple Bar, a cobblestoned cultural enclave of galleries, restaurants and hopping pubs, all to be enjoyed on Ireland tours.

Extend your Stay

Consider an additional stopover to your Ireland vacation at one of Goway's other European destinations. You can choose from  a Paris vacation, a London vacation or an Amsterdam vacation. This can be done stopping over en route to or from Ireland.
