Where to Find the Best Restaurants in Dublin

The Temple Bar area in the city centre is known as Dublin's cultural hotspot, where the cobbled streets are lined not only with art galleries and fashionable boutiques, but also with cafes, pubs and restaurants serving everything from traditional smoked Irish salmon to Javanese sate ayam. Close by is the prestigious Dame Street, home to award-winning restaurants, bistros and bars where locals dine on classics like venison tartare and beef short rib while socialising after work.

The Most Popular Things to do in Dublin

No trip to Dublin would be complete without stopping by the Guinness Storehouse, the top visitor attraction in all of Ireland. Located in the historic St James's Gate Brewery, the 7-storey building is shaped around a gigantic pint that could theoretically hold more than 14 million pints of the famous stout. Explore the history of Ireland's most iconic export, learn how to pour the perfect pint and cap your tour with a complimentary pint at the Gravity Bar. If you love art, you shouldn't miss the National Gallery of Ireland. Founded in 1854, the museum holds one of the largest and finest art collections in Europe, featuring not only the works of Irish artists such as James Barry, but also masterpieces by foreign artists including Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Picasso. Another great way to go sightseeing in Dublin is to go on a helicopter tour, where you'll get a bird's-eye view of famous landmarks such as the medieval Saint Patrick's Cathedral.
