When you think about the Capital of Ireland, and even when you google ‘things to do’ one of the first thing that comes up is the Guinness Storehouse. I visited for the first time recently and it was really great. You get told all about how the drink is made, view the different types of advertising over the years (Diago’s marketing is A1 by the way) and then get to pour your own pint at the end and enjoy all of Dublin’s views up at the Gravity Bar but Dublin has more than just The Guinness Storehouse and Kilmainham Gaol.
This weekend I took a spontaneous trip on the DART train out to Dalkey which is a beautiful small town in South Dublin (with some AMAZING houses) and walked roughly 3km along the coast/beach until we reached Killney Beach, then back along the hill road back towards the Dalkey DART station (although there is a station at Killney you can take back to the city if you don’t want to walk all the way back). We got lucky with the day that we picked as was a beautiful clear day, with a little bit of heat there as well. Honestly, I don’t think I have to say much more about it as the pictures speak for themselves.
There are plenty of places to explore around Dublin apart from the usual sights in the city centre and there is great public transport to get you to where you need to go. Although I am a sucker for the beaches down by Kerry which will always be my favourite – the views along the Dublin coast are something to be admired 😊.
Comment and let me know if you have been here, or other places in Dublin you have enjoyed!
