Home to some of Ireland’s most iconic landmarks, attractions and pubs, there’s no shortage of things to do and see when visiting Dublin, from the historic Kilmainham Gaol to the groundbreaking EPIC Irish Emigration Museum.
While there’s plenty of stunning city hotels to choose from, also consider looking at the guesthouses and B&Bs located just outside the city centre. Some of the hidden gems listed on Discover Ireland’s website include St. Anne’s in Glenageary, Adare House in Ballsbridge and Redbank House in Skerries.
