Great things are expected when you find yourself in Dublin. Authentic pubs, enthralling history and, of course, the famous craic, but there are so many things that can only be described as 'differently Dublin'. Our unique landscape means that adventure is to be found only minutes from our vibrant city. Take a look at what only Dublin can offer...



You really can expect the unexpected on a day in Dublin. The River Liffey runs through the heart of the city, and kayaking is an alternative way to explore the city which provides ample opportunity to see its famous architecture and bridges from a totally different angle. If you’re looking for something a bit more intense, get the adrenaline pumping by trying your hand at wakeboarding on Grand Canal Dock before unwinding in style with a night at the theatre.

Dublin has miles of coastline waiting for you to make a splash, as well as the Dublin Mountains towering over the city, offering unique experiences and unbeatable views of both city and sea. From abseiling in Dalkey and cliff diving in Howth, to ziplining and testing your balance mountain biking across treetop bridges at Tibradden Wood, there’s always something a little bit special to add to your trip.

These are only some of the ways to enjoy a different side of Dublin. Let Dublin surprise you even further but be prepared for your trip (no matter what you decide on) with our checklist for what to pack for your Dublin holiday
