Travel: How to spend 48 hours in the delightful Dublin

Grafton Street, Dublin
Grafton Street, Dublin

 

STAY

Founded in 1824, The Shelbourne Hotel is steeped in history – it’s where the Irish Constitution was drafted. Located at St Stephen’s Green, it’s also the perfect spot for exploring Ireland’s capital.

EAT

Visitors to Dublin shouldn’t miss out on the impeccable food at Delahunt. They specialise in home curing, slow-cooked braises, pickles and preserves and focus on seasonal, local produce. Their homemade Guinness bread is a must try!

Literary fans will love this location as the building, previously a grocery store, was mentioned in James Joyce’s masterpiece Ulysses. Or try a traditional Irish stew at the Brazen Head – Ireland’s oldest pub.

DRINK

The decadent Café En Seine is located over three floors and features a beautiful indoor street garden.

The cocktail menu is vast and has been curated to enhance specific experiences within the venue.

If you’re after something more relaxed, pop along to The Dawson Lounge to enjoy a pint of Irish stout. Holding the title of smallest pub in the city, you’ll be tight for space but have an unforgettable experience.

SEE

There’s only one way to start your morning in Dublin – a pint of Guinness!

Head to the Guinness Factory to learn more about the history of Ireland’s most famous drink and you’ll even get the chance to pull your own pint. Whiskey fans can also head to Jameson Distillery.

Located in the heart of Dublin is the breathtaking Trinity College – a walk through the grounds is highly recommended. It’s Ireland’s oldest university and previous students include Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett.

If it’s shopping you’re after, there’s no better place than a browse around the mix of local and international brands dotted along Grafton Street.
