We are all guilty of this – finding the best, most instagramable location for our holiday photos! So, to make it easier for you, we have included selection of the best views of Dublin. Bonus points if you get around to ALL of these on your next visit!
The most visited attraction in Dublin has some of the best views of Dublin, from the Gravity Bar perched on top of the Storehouse. This is where you get to taste your free pint after the tour, and marvel the view of city at the palm of your hand. Dublin doesn’t have a lot of high buildings, so you will be rewarded with un-interrupted views as far as eye can see!
Killiney Hill is the southernmost of the two hills which form the southern boundary of Dublin Bay (the other being Dalkey Hill). Crowned by an obelisk, the hill is 153 metres high and offers beautiful views over the surrounding areas: Dublin to the northwest; the Irish Sea and the mountains of Wales (on a clear day) to the east and southeast; and Bray Head and the Wicklow Mountains to the south.
This one doesn’t require too much effort as Liffey, river running through centre of Dublin is dotted by bridges. If you look at #Dublin or #LoveDublin you will see loads of photos from Ha’Penny Bridge taking in the centre and O’connel Street. Another popular vista is from Samuel Beckett bridge taking in docklands and Convention centre. These are within easy walking distance of each other and there is so much to explore in between! Must do!

Villages – Bray, Howth & More
Dublin is city by the sea, so visit to at least one of the seaside villages is an absolute must when you are here! Take DART (Dublin rail system) to Howth on North or Bray on South from the city center, climb up the cliff in Howth or Bray head in Brey and be awarded by stunning views and dramatic scenery Ireland is known for! These are paradise for hikers, we promise!
