There are many reasons why Dublin draws in so many city breakers every year. Part of it’s down to the sheer joy of the city – step into one of the fabled pubs, and you’ll be making new friends in minutes, while sipping the black stuff and listening to live music that’ll carry on into the early hours. Then, of course, there’s the culture. Literature lovers will feel a tingle as they take a tour of the streets and landmarks mentioned in James Joyce’s Ulysses, while family-friendly attractions will keep the kids beaming too. And, if you ever need a break from the busting streets, you can always step inside the tree-filled world of Phoenix Park, one of the largest walled parks in the whole of Europe. Dublin holiday rentals put all of this just moments from your bed.
Why check into a hotel room when you can settle into a proper place of your own? Dublin holiday rentals, which can be found scattered throughout the city, will give you so much more space to relax in, not to mention a proper kitchen where you can whip up breakfast every morning while planning your sightseeing. By searching on ebookers, you can find Dublin holiday apartments in lively quarters like Temple Bar, as well as in more serene parts of the city, so you can be sure of a base that suits you. After you finish unpacking, you can sit back on the sofa and enjoy the fantasy that you’ve actually moved to this sought-after city.
Guinness is one beverage eternally bound up with Dublin, and one of the most fascinating things to do here is visit the Guinness Storehouse. Sprawling over 7 floors, it’s an engrossing celebration of the black stuff, taking you through interactive exhibits, tasting rooms and, finally, to a floor offering panoramic views across the city. Anyone with a taste for history should make a beeline for Trinity College, where you can step into tranquil gardens and make a pilgrimage to the Book of Kells, an ornate Medieval edition of the Gospels. Speaking of history, there’s plenty to be seen at Christ Church Cathedral, the oldest building in Dublin, which has sweeping, vaulted ceilings and a curious 12th-century crypt containing a mummified rat and cat. Here with the whole family? You’ll delight them with a visit to Dublin Zoo, which has an African-style savanna, and a lush Gorilla Rainforest zone.
As James Joyce made clear in his many tales of the city, Dublin is an eminently walkable city. Even if you’re staying in your Dublin holiday apartment for an extended break, you can easily go without using any public transport. Still, there are reliable bus services on offer, if you ever need to rest those limbs. And if you’re curious to go beyond the city limits and see more of the Emerald Isle, hiring a car is highly recommended.
