Dublin‘s formidable roster of attractions and events will keep you busy at all hours of daylight, striding across the compact city centre and admiring the Georgian architecture. If you're a first-time visitor, consider purchasing a "Dublin Pass" from one of the tourist information offices and see as much as you can. The pass is good for one to three days, depending on which you purchase, so it's a good idea plan idea and see the major pay attractions in a single go.
Once you've made your rounds in the city, you'll want to capitalise on car hire in Dublin County and head out to explore. The commuter train covers some of the terrain, but a little extra mobility means you'll have the freedom to pause where you please and wander off the main circuit if the mood strikes. Sites worth visiting by hire car include Malahide Castle, the James Joyce Museum in Dún Laoghaire and the ruins and old town at Howth.
But evenings are best spent in Dublin city proper. The restaurant scene exploded in the late 1990s, leaving a trail of sophisticated cafés and fine-dining establishments that are still turning heads today. After hours, locals and visitors converge on the same pubs that hosted that hosted James Joyce and Oscar Wilde in their day. Add the swanky cocktail lounges and nightclubs that cropped up in the Celtic Tiger days, and it gets difficult finding time to sleep.
