What is the best time to fly to Dublin?

The best time to go to Dublin is during the summer months, as the city is notoriously rainy. It’s definitely advised to bring an umbrella or two, but Dublin is full of culture-rich activities that can be done in case of rain.

For more temperate weather, June - August is the time to go. People gather in Dublin’s beer gardens, parks and nearby beaches to soak up the sun. Dublin also has many beautiful green spaces to explore, like St Stephen’s Green or Iveagh Gardens.

Most excitingly, June - August is jam-packed with festivals. In June there is Bloomsday, after the renowned Irish author James Joyce. Fans can even follow in the footsteps of Leopold Bloom from Ulysses. There is also Dublin Pride, a women’s marathon, and a flower and food festival. July welcomes the annual music festival Longitude, and August hosts the Dublin Horse Show and the swimming race, the Dublin City Liffey Swim. Museums to visit (perhaps in a spot of rain) include the Little Museum of Dublin, The National Museum of Ireland and the Chester Beatty Library.

Whenever you visit, and whatever the weather, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome to a city bursting with Irish culture.

Best things to do in the city of Dublin

When anyone says that you can do Dublin in one day, they’re referring to seeing the major sights and enjoying a bit of the nightlife. Really, you could spend weeks in and around the capital of the Emerald Isle and not even scratch the surface of all of its incredible secrets. Whether you want to have fun, take in some nature, or just relax, Dublin has you covered.

To tick off some bucket list items, you’ll likely want to relax in Phoenix Park, walk around Dublin Zoo, and take some snaps of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin Castle, and Christ Church in and around the city centre. A bit further out, there’s also Malahide Castle.

For some memorable activities, get yourself to the Guinness Storehouse, The Abbey Theatre, or the Creative Quarter for some shopping. Then, of course, there’s the centrepiece of so many tourist nights out: Temple Bar. The riverside neighbourhood boasts a whole host of restaurants, bars, and live music events to enjoy.

Your plans for what to do in Dublin don't have to be restricted to the concrete jungle, though. Just outside of Dublin, you can go on some great walks to take in the superb Irish landscape. Howth Cliffs and Bull Island to the east of the city centre are always good choices, as is venturing to the Poolbeg Lighthouse.
