We would recommend a visit to the Phoenix Park; it is the largest enclosed public park in a capital city in Europe. Open to the public in 1747 it is also home to Dublin Zoo, Victorian flower gardens and Áras an Uachtaráin the official residence and workplace of the President of Ireland.
Less than a mile away is Ireland’s top tourist attraction Guinness Storehouse. In addition to pulling your own pint and sampling “the black stuff” with panoramic views of Dublin city in the Gravity Bar, you can also learn about the history of the Guinness Family and their brewing story.
Crossing the River Liffey to the old Smithfield Market you can also visit The Jameson Distillery. Stroll along the banks of The River Liffey and cross back to the south side over the world renowned Ha’penny Bridge to discover the centre of music and culture “craic agus ceol” in Dublin’s Temple Bar.
Spoiled for choice in the Dublin 8 area, why not wind down with a relaxing tour of our neighbouring Teelings Distillery where you can sample a taste of world class whiskey or take a walk to The Dublin Liberties Distillery and enjoy a sip on some of the eccentric flavours inspired by the distilling history of the Liberties and our local community. Some of the main attractions can be busy at peak times so we would suggest an hour to an hour and a half when planning your visits to enjoy the full experience.
Finish off your day with a delicious 3-course meal served in our Grain & Grill Restaurant where our team will be happy to recommend dishes to suit all tastes.
