A lot of the students in college in Dublin are either from the country or from abroad so I made a list of a few fun things to do in the first few weeks.
What is better than looking at cute animals and their babies. Dublin zoo is iconic in Ireland. And since they actively participate in the European breading programme there are always some cute little babies to coo over. They also do student discounts.
Guinness store house / jameson/ teeling
This is in the top 3 best tourist attractions in EUROPE, yep that’s right Europe. So clearly its somewhere to visit when your in Dublin. But if you don’t like following main steam trends and crowds why not try the Teeling whiskey store house. Set up by two Irish brothers in 2015, they have some of the worlds best whiskey and you get to try some too. They also do student discounts.
Visit one of the many vintage shops.
Dublin city is full of fantastic vintage shops. Try south William street for the best ones.
Do the 1916 tour
Visit all the main sites involved in the iconic 1916 rising and have some craic.
Visit Stepehens green
Situated in the heart of the city. Why not get an ice-cream while you walk along the lake.
