    Welcome to Dublin!

    Arrive at Dublin Airport and transfer to your hotel.

    Dublin is the number one destination in Ireland. The city has history, charm, sights, museums, galleries, theatres, shops, pubs, restaurants, and an abundance of character. Dublin's elegant Georgian architecture makes it one of Europe's most attractive capitals. It is a relatively small and accessible city, small enough and safe enough to get around on foot, while the Luas tram system and the suburban rail system, the DART, provide excellent transport links throughout the city.
