Temple Bar is one of the most recognised places in Dublin when you talk about nightlife. The atmosphere is crazy there from 6 pm to 1 am, there are a lot of different pubs but you will always find good beer and nice people.

Guinness is the most famous Irish beer and if you come to Dublin you will find it everywhere. If you want to know more about its history and its production go the Guinness Storehouse, you will not be disappointed. You will be taught how to properly pour a pint of Guinness, it is kind of an art and you will do that in a bar with a 360-degree view over Dublin.
Dublin is famous for the crazy nightlife but there are also great things to do with your family. What about going for a stroll in Phoenix park? This is Europe’s largest walled urban park, it’s a 352 years old park and it’s far from the city centre and the different O’Callaghan hotels. What’s cool with this park aside from the fact it’s free, is that you will walk among wild deer. They live in the park so you will be able to approach them but please don’t feed them. You will spend a delightful day or afternoon with your family!
Howth is one of the terminus of Dublin’s DART, this is a beautiful fishing village. Howth is famous for its Cliff walk where you will have a beautiful view over the sea, there are four different route options, so once you disembark the DART, look out for the signs displaying directions. We recommend you to eat in one of the restaurants next to the harbour, where you will find delicious, fresh seafood.
