Spring Break in Dublin, Daffodils, St. Patrick’s Day festivities and much much more!
With so many great pubs, affordable accommodation, free museums Dublin, not to mention a happening calendar of regular events, Dublin is fast becoming a Spring break hot spot!
Temple Bar is the most well known part of Dublin for its pub scene. With its lively atmosphere and its wide variety of traditional pubs and late night clubs it has proven popular since its inception 25 years ago. The Dublin Visitor Centre team love to offer off the beaten track insights to future visitors. This week we recommend exploring the Dame district which these days is giving Temple Bar a run for its money. Packed full of cheap and cheerful, but yummy, eateries Dame Street and its locale is home to a Dublin Visitor Centre team favourite – The Stag’s Head. Pop in to enjoy their Irish pot still whiskey of the month accompanied by award winning pub grub, head upstairs to enjoy a pint by the open fire, or head downstairs for a traditional music session.
Dublin offers a range of budget accommodation options. One of the super city hostel’s is the relatively new Generator, located in Smithfield Square. This hostel has the added perk of having its own bar and Friday night gigs. Book a budget-friendly room here and use your budget to enjoy yummy dining out – we love Queen of Tarts, also on Dame Street and Crackbird, the eaterie for chicken lovers!
Take a bit of time to explore the many wonderful cultural and historical attractions all within walking distance of the city centre. For culture vultures our favourite FREE attractions include the Chester Beatty library, IMMA and The Trinity Science Gallery. For shoppers why not explore Dublin’s market scene. Stroll Temple Bar, Cow’s Lane and Meeting House Square in particular for the main Saturday market or wander along Drury Street and Temple Bar to visit great Vintage shops in Temple Bar.
And these are just the things to do that don’t include the St. Patrick’s Festival events calendar. The weather in spring may not be predictable but we can promise you that you will enjoy Dublin’s hip, trendy and friendly offering. The sunny days are the icing on the cake.
