Join us on a holiday to Dublin

As a city break destination the Irish capital is second-to-none thanks to the sheer number of intriguing attractions both ancient and new, from the magnificent, imposing Dublin Castle to the incredibly fun Dublin Zoo.

The birthplace of James Joyce and Guinness, the city has been producing magic for centuries. Whether you enjoy learning about a place’s history and culture or are keener on slurping down a pint of Guinness in a traditional Irish pub, a Dublin break won’t disappoint.

Dublin holidays mean packing a lot in as the city is so full of different things to see and do, but with Newmarket Tours you’ll be sure to see the highlights. Even on a short Dublin weekend break you can be enchanted by the live music that drifts out from the pubs of Temple Bar, wander the charming grounds of Trinity College, or get into the swing of things by watching Gaelic games at the legendary Croke Park. 

If you’re more of a nature lover than a city fan, a holiday in Dublin still has lots to offer. There are plenty of great hikes and trails just outside the city, and as Ireland is relatively small it’s only a day trip to Giants Causeway or the Cliffs of Moher. If you’re feeling adventurous you can even do a Dublin tour by kayak on the Liffey. No matter what you’re looking for in a city break, Dublin holidays have it all.

  • As a country, Ireland has a just reputation as being one of Europe’s most expensive: according to a 2019 study, was the fourth-most expensive country in the European Union. That being said, it is still possible to visit Ireland, particularly larger cities like Dublin, on a tighter budget by booking an escorted tour with included meals and accommodation.

  • The best time to visit Dublin is between March and May, when it’s not as crowded as it is in peak summer. September to November is also a good time to visit, before the cold of winter, but with fewer crowds.

  • According to a 2020 scientific study, Guinness tastes better in Ireland than anywhere else on earth. Of all the places in Ireland, the Temple Bar in Dublin has earned a reputation as being the best place in the country for a pint of Guinness, known locally as ‘the black stuff’.
