Dublin city guide

Two Boys Brew

For the excellent coffee

Dublin may not be the most obvious place to go for Australian coffee culture, but that was the inspiration behind this slick, industrial-style café, opened in 2016. Brunch plates, from avocado mash to ricotta hotcakes, are available all week, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a better cortado anywhere else in the city.

Fish Shop Queen Street

For the freshest catch

Dublin is a coastal city, but it hasn’t always acted like one, with much of the daily catch shipped away to foreign shores. But now, a new wave of restaurateurs is championing local seafood, among them the husband-and-wife duo Peter and Jumoke Hogan. Their pared-back, pocket-size neighbourhood haunt serves superb sustainable seafood, offering a set menu built around whatever is freshest.

Bastible

For Sunday lunch

A frontrunner in Dublin’s recent restaurant renaissance, Bastible is mega-hyped and perma-packed — book in advance. The fanfare is, however, well justified, with former Harwood Arms chef Barry Fitz-gerald and his team firing out sensational hyper-seasonal plates. Go on Sundays for family-style feasts built around mains of fish or meat (like black Angus rump cap with bone marrow and horseradish).

Bread 41

For organic baked goods

This bakery grinds Irish-grown grain in-house using its own stone mill, avoiding the nutrition-obliterating methods of industrial milling processes. Although pastries are sold, the long-fermented sourdough breads are the star of the show, and feature heavily on the breakfast and sandwich menus.

Peruke & Periwig

For unique cocktails

With velvet upholstery, oil paintings and old-timey bric-a-brac, this candlelit bar and restaurant — set in a Georgian wigmaker’s — feels like a period film set. Sip craft cocktails, such as In the Navy, an award-winning twist on a sweet-meets-sour tiki classic that swaps a rum base for Irish whisky.

Etto

For the best casual dining

Tables are tightly packed at this compact eatery, which only adds to the intimate, chatter-y vibe. The menu changes regularly, though first-rate Italian staples (think butter-soft burrata, spicy nduja and sweet datterini tomatoes) are often on offer. If you can convince your dinner companion to partake, the show-stopping côte de boeuf for two is a must-order.

The Forty Foot

For the outdoor fun

This saltwater bathing spot at Dublin Bay was famously name-checked by James Joyce in Ulysses. Every day, swimmers fling themselves into the freezing water, shout out a few expletives and emerge shivering. Why, you may wonder? For the sheer fun of it. You can watch from the sidelines, but if you plan on joining, bring a flask of something hot — you’ll be grateful for the post-splash pick-me-up.

14 Henrietta Street

For a museum of social history

Tour the time-capsule interior of the city’s newest museum, 14 Henrietta Street, a grand Georgian mansion originally built for the elite but later occupied by Dublin’s destitute. Crumbling balusters, scraps of faded wallpaper, and recordings from former residents recall the rich and near-forgotten history of the notorious inner-city slums.

Bray Cliff Walk

For edge-of-the-world views

For a dose of salt air and sea vistas, ride the DART train to Bray, where this scenic 7-km walk begins. The path snakes along the edge of the cliff-lined coast all the way to the seaside town of Greystones. Once there, refuel at the vegetarian Happy Pear café, before hopping on the DART back to town.

Smock Alley

For a theatre experience

Reopened in 2012 following a 225-year hiatus, this lovely old theatre is part of Dublin’s historic fabric — it was an 18th-century theatre and then a 19th-century church. In its newest incarnation, it encompasses three performance spaces, and hosts both classic and new productions at wallet-friendly prices.

Celtic Whiskey Shop

For the rare spirits

At Dublin’s finest spirits supplier, Irish whiskys take pride of place. The stock ranges from rare collectibles, such as a 1900s Bushmills antique (€1,250), to newer releases, like the Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey (€54). If you need help choosing from the vast number of bottles, the staff know their stuff.

Indigo & Cloth

For hard-to-find menswear

The four-storey premises of Indigo & Cloth include a café, shop and studio — but menswear is where it all began. Browse cult Scandi and other European brands, such as Our Legacy and Portuguese Flannel, as well as homegrown Irish designers, like the Tweed Project.

Irish Design Shop

For local crafts

The jewellery-making duo behind this boutique, Clare Grennan and Laura Caffrey, have an eye for lovely things, as evidenced in the shop’s highly curated selection. Everything sold here is handmade in Ireland, from the knit hot-water bottle covers to the wood-turned bowls and geometric-shaped jewellery.

Jam Art Factory

For affordable art

Browse fun, talking-point prints from emerging and established Irish artists. With most of the artwork priced between €15 and €60, almost everyone can afford to leave with something to brighten their wall, be it a colourful, graffiti-inspired piece or a whimsical illustration.

Om Diva

For wide-ranging womenswear

An alternative to lookalike high-street fashions, Om Diva sells colourful, mood-brightening women’s clothes and accessories across three floors. Rails downstairs are packed with vintage pieces sourced from far-flung locales, while the upper floors house contemporary designers and pieces from independent Irish talent, such as Jennifer Byrne and Capulet & Montague.

Number 31

For the cozy atmosphere

The Georgian frontage of this luxury guesthouse hides an unexpected architectural secret: There’s a 1950s modernist mews by the polarizing Irish architect Sam Stephenson hidden in the back of the property. Guests here can escape the city bustle, enjoying open fires, a hushed garden, and cooked-to-order breakfasts served at communal tables.

Dylan Hotel

For the playful style

Behind the red-brick Victorian facade of this 72-room boutique hotel is an interior that’s brash yet undeniably fun, with antique-style mirrors, crushed-velvet couches, and statement art from the likes of Ana Fuentes. Though located in a relatively quiet residential area, the Dylan’s bar is a hot spot known for creative cocktails, such as pear and pepper martinis.

The Shelbourne

For the historic glamour

The grande dame of Dublin’s luxury hotels, the Shelbourne has catered to well-heeled travellers since 1824. Not only was the Irish constitution drafted here, but VIPs from JFK to Rita Hayworth have all bedded down at the Shelbourne. Pull up a stool at the Horseshoe Bar, where Irish celebs are often spied sipping classic cocktails.

The Marker

For the rooftop views

Located about 2 km from the city centre on Dublin’s Silicon Docks — so called because of its high concentration of tech-industry residents — the Marker offers sleek minimalism. The spa, which features an infinity pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and an expansive menu of treatments, is a rare find in such a central hotel, though the views of the River Liffey from the rooftop bar leave the biggest impression.

Info about getting from the airport, public transportation and more.

Getting From the Airport

Two bus services connect the airport to the city centre: Airlink Express (single ticket: €6) and Aircoach (single ticket: €7). Taxis are metered, and fares vary by the destination, number of passengers and time of day. The journey to the city centre should set you back €25 to €30.

Public Transportation

One ticket on Dublin’s Luas light rail system costs €2.10 to €3.30, depending on the length of the journey. Riders can save by buying a reloadable Leap Card (€5), which offers cheaper fares than cash-bought tickets. The Leap Visitor Card (€10 for one day, €19.50 for three days) provides unlimited access to all Luas, Dublin Bus, DART and Commuter Rail routes, as well as Airlink Express bus services.

Taxis

Taxis can be hailed off the street, found at ranks throughout Dublin city centre, or booked via the MyTaxi app. Private-hire vehicles are illegal, so Uber will only connect you to licensed metered taxis.

Bikes

DublinBikes has more than 100 bike stations dotted around the city centre. Purchase a three-day subscription for €5, and the first 30 minutes of every ride is free (additional charges apply after that).
