Things to do in Ireland

A busy street with pubs in Dublin, Ireland.

Drinking in Dublin

The Guinness Storehouse is a quick, fun stop for any beer enthusiast. Take the self-guided tour to walk through the history of one of Ireland's most famous exports and learn how to pour the perfect glass at the Guinness Academy. For the liquor lovers, try your hand at a cocktail-making class at the Jameson Distillery. Pop into (any) pub for live music every night.

The Hawkeye School of Falconry

Run by truly the nicest couple, John and Caroline, the Hawkeye School of Falconry promises a unique experience complete with their extraordinary birds.

Countryside Cruising

Rent a car and drive through the beauty that rural Ireland has to offer. You'll spot quaint towns, cute cows and sheep and impressive architecture.

Day Trips

Cliffs of Moher, Sean's Bar (claims to be the oldest pub in Ireland,) Kylemore Abbey, Trinity College and the Kilmainham Gaol Museum.

Places to eat & drink in Ireland

Irish sandwich with potatoes.

Loam: Enjoy a tasting dinner at Michelin-starred restaurant and wine bar in the heart of Galway. Try the wine pairing for a well-matched extra treat.

The Pullman Restaurant: Come here for a truly unique dining experience. Step back in time and dine in an original carriage from the Orient Express. Don't forget to plan for extra time for photos.

allta: Located at the top of Trinity Park, allta restaurant is worth the quest. The food is as beautiful as it is delicious. Run don't walk, as they are closing at the end of 2022.

Variety Jones: With no sign above the door, Variety Jones might seem unassuming, but this small restaurant guarantees a dinner to remember. Watch impressive chef and owner Keelan Higgs prepare your food in a relaxing, yet lively environment.
