City in a Day

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

altIt is impossible to pack everything into one day, but some major monuments can been seen in one day.  We have proposed to potential types of city in a day tours. The first is as follows:

Part 1
Start your morning early with a good, hearty breakfast at Bewley’s which opens at 8 am. Recommended here is their coffee and eggs, quite filling for a long day of walking and sight-seeing.
Next, take the walking tour of Dublin. You have to sign up for this at least a day in advance. Bookings can be made on their website if you are in Dublin for just a couple of days. Tour meets outside Trinity College, only a couple of hundred metres away, at 11 am. The tour lasts a little over two hours but packs in the main historical and cultural monuments in the city. Here you will get to see Trinity College, Old Parliament House, Temple Bar, City Hall, Dublin Castle, Wood Quay, Christ Church Cathedral and Four Courts.

Tour gets over just in time for lunch so head over to the Epicurian Food Hall, especially if you’re traveling with family and no one can decide what they want! Here everyone will find something to eat and won’t be disappointed.

Take a stroll down the Liffey Boardwalk to take in the sights and sounds of Dublin.After that you can either take the bus or Luas to Grafton Street where you can spend the rest of the afternoon walking around and shopping from the small boutique stores. Take a break and have some fresh juice or a smoothie at Nude after a long day in Dublin.

Finally, unwind at L'Gueuleton for some French cuisine. Be sure to get there early because they don’t take reservations and people have to que up outside to get seated.

If you’re still up for some night life, go to the Temple Bar area where the streets are alive with festivities everywhere. Check out one pub or many, just to get a flavour of how the locals relax and have fun.

Part 2
Because all the major sights in Dublin are in close proximity of each other, it is very easy to visit them within a day. Also with the use of the efficient transport system and city tour bus services, your itinerary is already planned out. Most of the buses start by 8 am, so you can get a head start by reaching a site well before it opens, since most of them open at 9am. For a day tour it is recommended to make use of the Dublin Tour Bus- Hop On Hop Off service which runs to and fro every major sight in the city. Most hotels offer free or packaged offers for the shuttle bus, so make sure to check in advance.

Starting at Trinity College, you can take a stroll along Nassau street and Abbey street to do some shopping and explore the various stalls and then take in the architecture of the University before hopping into the bus. The bus will take you the National Gallery where you can then walk to the Natural History Museum and the Museum of Decorative Arts and History. After catching lunch at the various restaurants at St Stephens Green, you can choose to spend explore the Guinness Storehouse or the Dublin Zoo, each of which would need a few hours. By evening you can head to Temple Bar district where the night’s entertainment and activities will keep you busy and give you a true Irish experience.
