Planning Your Visit
Best time to visit?
Ireland isn't exactly known for its splendid weather, but the best of it generally makes its token appearance at the end of summer (September-ish). If you're looking for an excuse to don a silly hat and swig Guinness, the St. Patrick's Day parade is on March 17th.
How to get around?
The Irish are world-renowned for their terrific sense of humor, and nowhere is this more evident than in Dublin's public transport network! There are 2 unconnected tram lines and trains mainly serve the outer rim of the city. The bus network is extensive but a tough nut to crack for visitors (see dublinbus.ie). The good news, however, is that most of the sights are just a short walk from each other in the heart of the city!
How many days?
You could see the sights of Dublin in a day or two, but remember this is a city of exemplary museums, exciting music and sports events, and enticing modern restaurants. Book a week to delve into its best kept secrets!

What people are saying about Dublin
We had a blast; it really was a fun-packed day. The entire route was nearly 370 miles long but our guide Anthony made it exceptionally enjoyable. He shared with us some engaging stories and facts about every sight and town we drove by seasoned with a light-hearted and humorous touch. A 10/10 guide for sure. It starts at 6:45h and that might be a pain in the ass, but I assure you that the tour is worth every waking minute of your day. The guys were able to squeeze together and pull off a magnific day tour.
This museum is a treasure! The very best part of the experience was the tour guided by Rosa. She was so informative and entertaining and even sang us a beautiful Irish song a Capello! What a treat! I highly recommend a visit to the Little Museum of Dublin!
