Tip of the month

A cosmopolitan attitude and traditional Irish atmosphere on the east coast and outdoor activities along the west coast.

The city at the mouth of the River Liffey aptly brings together the sophisticated lifestyle and traditional charm and joie de vivre of the local people. The cultural melting pot of Dublin is Temple Bar in the city centre. This lively quarter contains numerous workshops, studios, museums and exhibitions. Artists and musicians also enliven the streets and contribute to the colourful diversity of the quarter. Music lovers absolutely have to visit Camden Street. You will find a wide variety of events here with modern and traditional live music.

If you like to shake a leg we recommend the Button Factory, where the best Irish and international DJs are to be found from Thursday to Saturday. Last but not least, you must not miss a visit to the Guinness brewery. This is just 20 minutes on foot from Pearse Street station. And if you would like to look out over the roofs of Dublin, you can enjoy a Guinness in the Gravity Bar. You have a breathtaking view of the capital from here.

Tip.

Visit the varied markets of Dublin:

  • Temple Bar Food Market, Saturdays, Meetinghouse Square.
  • Temple Bar Book Market, Saturdays and Sundays, Temple Bar Square.
  • Designer Mart, Saturdays, Cow’s Lane.

Plenty of activities in the west.

The pretty little town of Galway is a true paradise for activity lovers. Here on the west coast you can indulge in countless outdoor activities. For example, Galway is one of the best places in Ireland for windsurfing, kayaking and surfing. You will also find numerous mountain bike routes here, as well as diving opportunities along the rugged coast with its fascinating reefs. You can hire equipment at each location.
