How to do Dublin in one day
Tick off all the sights
Sometimes you want a break away to be a leisurely, relaxing affair where you don’t wander too far from the cosiness of your hotel room. But other times, you want to see as much as you possibly can, and cram all that a city has to offer into your time away. But how do you manage that if you’re only away for a minibreak?
Well, even if you’re only in Dublin for one day, there’s a way to tick off a whole load of the city’s sights. A DoDublin Hop on Hop Off Tour means zipping around the city with the option of stopping off wherever you please. The green double decker buses take in all of Dublin’s highlights, so whatever you want to see, you can get it all done.
You’ll see the big sights, of course, like Trinity College, the Guinness Storehouse and Kilmainham Gaol, but also some of the smaller attractions the city has to offer. Places like EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, Teeling Whiskey Distillery and Marsh’s Library beside St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Tickets also include free entry into one of the best museums in the country, the Little Museum of Dublin. Not only that, you can also enjoy a walking tour led by a city expert. There are 33 stops across the city, so you can be sure to fill your day with fascinating points of interest. Buses leave each stop every 15 minutes, too, so there’s no time wasted waiting for the next one to depart.
Best of all, there’s a free shuttle bus for guests staying in The Croke Park hotel, taking those on the tour to the first stop of the day. The shuttle service runs from the hotel at 8.45am, 9.30am and 10.45am, and returning everyone back at 6.15pm (ready for a well earned cocktail in The Sideline Bar).
