Tips on Making the Most of Your Dublin Holiday

Are you planning a holiday to Dublin soon? Whether you have booked a tour or decided to explore this part of Ireland on your own, here are some tips to make the most of your trip.

Book Your Accommodation

If you are going solo, there are hostels you can book in, from dorm types to private rooms. Pick your choice depending on your preference and budget. Finding one is not that daunting. There are also budget hotels that are more expensive than hostels if you want more privacy and larger accommodation.


Tour the City Wisely

Going around Dublin and other nearby zones is easy because of the different ways to do so. You can take the suburban train, tram or bus at prices you will find affordable. There are also free walking tours you can join organized by the Dublin City Council as well as free tours from Dublin Castle.

If you are into bikes, you can rent one for three days from the city centre. Remember that the first 30 minutes of using the bicycle is free so to make the most of your budget, use it for less than the limited time, return it and borrow a different one.
