Getting ready for your holiday in Ireland? Dublin may not have a lot of tall buildings for amazing cityskapes you usually get in the capitals around the world, but we make that up with plenty of charm, stunning traditional and modern architecture, beach and river perfect for sunrises and sunsets and plenty more! Up your Instagram game with some of these suggestions, and read our guide for the most Instagrammable locations in Dublin:
Temple Bar Pub
There is hardly a tourist (or local!) who can pass by the legendary Temple Bar Pub and not take a photo. This is selfie central, and an absolute must! Luckily, it is two doors down from us, so you won’t have to go to far for a perfect start of holiday photo!
The Ha’penny Bridge
On a sunny day, you won’t be able to pass the bridge without stopping for the photos, guaranteed! This is easily one of the most photographed landmarks in Dublin. Up your game by taking photo of it from one of the restaurants next to it – try Winding Stair or Woolen Mills for a view.
Surrounded by controversy from the beginning, The Spire is now instantly recognisable part of the cityscape. This O’Connell Street landmark is an iconic and sometimes swaying symbol of modern Ireland. There is a lot of angles to work with here – try view from Henry Street, view down the O’Connell Street or even from Croke Park walkway!
Trinity College & the Book of Kells
Hardly needing an introduction, Trinity College is usually the first stop of tour through Dublin (conveniently located on top of Dame street). It houses Book of Kells which leads on to the Long Library – one of the most stunning libraries in the world. This is not to be missed, even if you are not interested in taking photos!
Grand Canal Dock
And now for something completely different… This futuristic landscape here is just so cool, it’s no wonder the world’s biggest tech companies and websites chose to have offices down here! Also, make sure to try some wakeboarding while you are in the docklands!
Howth or Dun Laoghaire
If you feel like venturing out of Dublin’s city center for a bit, may we suggest hopping on a DART and checking out Howth or Dun Laoghaire, both perfect destinations for a day trip. Make sure to walk down the pier, check out the Marina, hike up the cliffs of Howth and soak up the atmosphere in either of these gorgeous towns.
