Coming to TBEX? What not to miss on your trip to Dublin….
It’s an exciting time of year for all those interested in travel – especially for us in Dublin: TBEX is coming! TBEX is the largest gathering of travel bloggers in the world and their 2013 European Conference is being held in Dublin this year. Heading to TBEX this year or just love to travel? We at Celtic Group Hostels know Dublin inside out and we’ve put together a list of the best of Dublin what not to be missed on your trip to Dublin.
We book 100s of groups every year on tours and attractions across Ireland so we have a good handle on the best there is to see and do on this beautiful island. If you’re just coming to Dublin for TBEX or you’re extending your stay, we have some suggestions for you. Here are our top picks:
Explore the city
If you’re only here for TBEX, the best way to see the city is by the Dublin Bus – Hop on Hop off tour. With informative and entertaining commentary from a local driver guide, explore the highlights of the city from an open topped sightseeing bus. Dublin is compact enough that you can take it all in on foot. Pat Liddy Walking Tours are also an excellent way to see the best of Dublin’s famous icons and hidden gems.
Phoenix Park is the largest city park in Europe. Hiring bikes here is a great way to get out and explore Dublin’s breath of fresh air. There are other lovely parks in the city, such as St Stephen’s Green.
Ireland has a great many failed and successful rebellions to its name. Kilmainham Gaol tour showcases the history of Irish rebellions and the impact of the famine – you can also see the place where the leaders of the Easter Rising were executed.
It’s difficult to come to Dublin and avoid Guinness. Get the full experience and visit the Guinness Storehouse where you can drink a pint of the black stuff in the Gravity Bar. Guinness not your thing? Try the Old Jameson Distillery to see the whiskey making process (and try some too !)
If you have some more time in the city, why not take a day trip? Explore more of Ireland by heading to: Belfast, Galway & Connemara, Wicklow, Cliffs of Moher or the Giants Causeway! How about extending your stay and making a multi-stop trip? Check out our hostels in Cork, Galway City, The Cliffs of Moher and Connemara, prefect for exploring the rest of Ireland.
We look forward to welcoming you to Dublin for TBEX. These are just our top picks for a short stay in Dublin, check out our ‘Things to do’ guide on our website for more ideas of what to do in the city.
