Dubliners are always up for “a good craic,” but the city also has an artsy side. It inspired creative minds from James Joyce and Oscar Wilde to Sally Rooney and Sinead O’Connor. You’ll find loads of music and comedy venues, and bookworms can peruse the book market and Trinity College’s library.
There are beautiful sights like the Dublin Castle and the Christ Church Cathedral, but if a boozy tour is more your thing, visit the Jameson distillery (which is right next door to Generator Dublin) and Guinness brewery.
