What am I to do next year? My wife and kids won't be happy on any other vacation ever... We had so much fun with you. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful land with us. Slainte.
Culture, history, nightlife
Cobbled streets, the fulsome whiff of hops on the air, the bustle of traffic and the clap of horseshoes on the old rail lines. Lights twinkling on a dark river. Cranes at sunset, the cosy noise of company spilling out from the pub doors. Bronze statue of street wench, of wit, of artist, poet and rebel. Grand facades pockmarked with bullets. Dead history brought to life in stone. A city now reaching for the twenty first century sky. A city of castles, wide promenade and dark alley. Of parks and parades. Of whiskey and drama. Dublin awaits you...
Most Wolfhound passengers are keen to spend some time exploring more of Dublin.
Usually people may take two full days either end of their Wolfhound adventure. We've included lots of interesting Dublinks on our links page for an unforgettable Dublin visit.
A great way to see the city is on an open top bus tour. But here's the general jist of things to do to get you started...
There really is so much to do in our small capital city whatever your interests include. If you're a culture vulture there are many fantastic museums but the two must sees are the National History Museum in Kildare St and the Chester Beatty Library. And of course the Book of Kells in Trinity College, where the long library is truly a wonder.
For those of you here to taste the mighty flavours of Dublin you'll want to take a trip to the Guinness Storehouse and perhaps the Old Jameson Whiskey Distillery. There's also the small matter of over 1000 pubs to 'research'.
If you simply would like to relax before or after your Wolfhound adventure why not chill out in some of the many great parks in the city. St Stephens Green is a great place to people-watch, read Ulysses, feed the ducks or make new friends. There's the statue of Oscar Wilde in Merrion Square or you could meditate in the Garden of Remembrance on Parnell Square or see if you can find the secret walled garden behind
the National Concert Hall.
If you'd like to go further afield from Dublin you may want to check out the lovely Howth peninsula with great walks and pubs. Or if you're a U2 fan you could see if you can find Bono's house in Dalkey. There are lots of local day trips too to passage tombs and hidden valleys.
There are sea safaris, ghost buses and even helicopter excursions.
