Location

Ireland in a Nutshell

After Dark Destinations 
 
  • The Market Hotel’s Rooftop and Terrace Bar is a late night must. Famed for its it’s stunning cityscape views, drink here in style while lapping up panoramic vistas of Dublin. The buzz of the urban city life is enhanced in the swanky social venue. Mingle with fellow travellers and allow the mixologists to make you an innovative cocktail or two with precision and care. Enjoy intimate indoor or outdoor areas that seamlessly blend into each other offering chic décor and sumptuous settees. Chat amongst friends as you relish the sophisticated atmosphere and admire the night’s sky.  
     
  • The party hub of Dublin’s city centre, Temple Bar area is renowned for its electric nightlife. Trendy eateries, lively pubs and buzzing night clubs surround the cobbled streets. For a classic Irish pub feel go to Teac Na Céibe in Temple Bar Square for a traditional pint and some Dublin soul. Or, if you’re after a fun night of clubbing across two fabulous floors head to The Purty Kitchen or The Workman’s club where you are guaranteed to be kept on your toes all night.  
     
  • For a fun filled evening of blues, rock and jazz, The Belfast Empire Music Hall is your go to! Offering a lively atmosphere and a range of beats, this one is the perfect spot for music lovers. Oh, and did we mention it also hosts a comedy night? Convinced? 
     
Tastes To Try 
 
  • A trip to Dublin would not be complete without a stop off at Guinness Storehouse. Playing homage to the black stuff since 1759, situated in the centre of the St James’s Gate Brewery, the former Guinness fermentation plant, is an iconic seven-storey build in the shape of a giant pint. A trip here will teach you everything you ever wanted to know about the legendary drink. To complete your visit, enjoy malts at the cool Gravity Bar, receive a complimentary pint of Guinness and lap up panoramic views across Dublin.  
     
  • For exquisite fine dining, we recommend eating at the spectacular Patrick Guilbaud. Located beside the five-star Merrion Hotel in Dublin, the restaurant is Ireland’s only two-time Michelin-star restaurant. Serving up mouth-watering contemporary Irish cuisine infused with a classic twist, the presentation, quality and flavours on offer are certainly worthy of the rating. Innovative food plates and a wealth of Irish charm combined with Parisian decorum guarantees a profound dining experience.  
     
  • For a scenic affair, The Tower Bar and Restaurant in Mayo is perfectly positioned on the Westport harbour and offers stunning vistas over the bay. Dine indoors or al fresco and enjoy fresh, seasonal fare as well as a range of craft beers, wine and cocktails. With live music most evenings, BBQ’s throughout the summer and a beautiful beer garden, this one’s a must. 
     
Soak up the Culture 
 
  • Dublin’s National Gallery of Ireland boasts a spectacular collection of paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures. It also houses an iconic collection of Irish paintings while the gallery's highlights are works by Vermeer, Caravaggio, Picasso, Van Gogh and Monet. A trip here is a must for art lovers!
     
  • For a little history, Saint Paul’s Cathedral is a definite. Built between 1220 and 1260, this is one of the only standing buildings left from the medieval city of Dublin. Learn about the past of the largest cathedral in Ireland and admire the architectural beauty as it stands proudly as the National Cathedral for the Church of Ireland today. We also recommend a visit to Dublin Castle, the National Library of Ireland and the National Museum of Ireland.  
     
  • Cork is situated on the picturesque River Lee and boasts Ireland’s arguably most beautiful natural harbour. Steeped in history with an authentic surrounding aura, Cork is the place to seriously soak up the culture. Must see’s (after the harbour) are the medieval Blarney Castle and Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral, boasting a Victorian Neo-Gothic edifice with spires. Don’t forget to take your camera!
