Dublin Vacations

One of Dublin’s most famous native sons also happens to be one of the most quoted people in history: Oscar Wilde is credited with such gems as “I can resist anything except temptation.” He would know, because his hometown is simply filled with them. While you won’t find Lucky Charms served in the restaurants, and the pubs don’t serve green beer, a trip to Dublin does have plenty of delicious food and tempting brews. After all, this city practically invented shepherd’s pie and dark, creamy stouts. And once your taste buds have been satiated, you’ll find indulgences for your eyes and ears, as well—not to mention your soul. Take in a recital at St. Patrick's Cathedral or take a stroll through the lush landscapes of St. Stephen's Green. A Dublin vacation package is your ticket to thousands of years of history and culture. It is time to get going to the “Emerald Isle.”

Hotels in Dublin

First things first, traveler. You need a place to lay your head and let visions of leprechauns and pots o’ gold dance in your head. You’ll thank your lucky stars there are so many options to add on to package deals in Dublin.

  • The Westbury Hotel is five-star luxury right in the middle of it all. Get cultured at the area’s art galleries before taking in a show at the Gaiety Theatre.
  • Ashling Hotel Dublin is another five-star beauty located a bit farther north, near the historic Ha’penny Bridge and the world-famous Temple Bar.
  • The Westin Dublin is in the western part of town, near the National Museum of Ireland and Phoenix Park, known as “Dublin’s playground”—this park is so large, it even has resident deer!
  • Castle Hotel is rated as family-friendly thanks to available child care services, free breakfast, and complimentary cribs. The whole crew is welcome here!

Major Attractions

Begin your Dublin vacation with an eerie stroll through Kilmainham Gaol, the 18th-century prison. Once a sign of oppression and tyranny during the struggle for Irish independence, it is now one of the country’s most important landmarks. History lovers will surely get their fill; then, literary types can learn their own sort of history by stepping into the James Joyce Centre. Another of Ireland’s natives, he may have said “A man’s errors are his portals of discovery,” but there are no mistakes here. See a family tree of editions for “Ulysses,” a copy of Joyce’s death mask, and short documentary films detailing the author’s life. When your personal tour is over, slide behind the wheel of a rental car to make the 9-mile drive down to Dalkey for fresh seafood, and, of course, a cool Guinness.

There is yet another famous author to be found buried at St. Patrick's Cathedral: Jonathan Swift. Take a tour to learn about all the other incredible history of Ireland’s largest church, and be sure to stay for the evening service. The harmonious voices and organ notes of the cathedral’s famous Choral Evensong have moved many guests over the years. Another beautiful experience is St. Stephen's Green, the city’s central park. Enjoy a coffee and scone at an outdoor cafe before you browse the shopping arcade, then stroll past the buskers on your way to befriend the swans in the pond. It’s the perfect relaxation spot for those on a family vacation in Dublin, too.

Festivals and Events

A long weekend of fun, laughs, and Irish stout sounds excellent, doesn’t it? The Cat Laughs Comedy Festival is held on the first weekend in June, and it’s worth the trip. But of course, you know what the biggest event of them all is. Look into deals in March and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the locals. The festival held in Dublin every year is a sight to see, with traditional Irish marching bands, more Guinness and food pairings than you thought possible, and a spectacular parade that draws nearly 500,000 attendees. Don’t just imagine spending this glorious holiday in the country that invented it—live it with a vacation in Dublin.

This is one case where you shouldn’t listen to James Joyce; you don’t need to make any mistakes in order to discover the spectacular deals on Travelocity. Hearing fiddles in person is tempting, so browse Travelocity now to find the best Dublin vacation packages. We think your luck is changing already!
