We’ve come up with a list of possible venues for things to do in Dublin for those of you who’ve come here as part of couple, and we hope you find something you’ll enjoy doing together. Dublin is such a beautiful city, it’d be a shame not to take full advantage of the experience together.
The famous Dublin Zoo has a wide selection of animals from all over the world with animal attractions and activities for the whole family, so if you’re a couple and you’ve brought the kids, then a trip to the zoo is a must.
If you both love history, then the national museums of Dublin are a must. There are four located in Ireland, three of which are in Dublin, and one more which is in Mayo. Each museum is dedicated to its own special area of interest, it’s archaeology in Kildare street, Dublin, Decorated Arts and History in Collins Barracks, again in Dublin and Natural History in Merrion Square, Dublin, and County Mayo houses Country Life artefacts at Turlough Park.
17 storeys up and you have a world-famous sporting arena. There are some great views here and you can see some of Dublin’s most famous landmarks. There are audio guides in a wide choice of languages, so if English isn’t your first language, then you’ll still be able to hear all about Dublin’s history from this breath-taking spot.
Believe in ghosts? Dublin has its fair share and if you go on the ghost tour you’ll have ample opportunity to see or just hear about them on the ghost bus. This is one trip you won’t want to miss.
Fancy a romantic trip around Dublin at a nice leisurely pace? Try riding around in one of Dublin’s famous horse drawn carriages. You can either take a ride or even have an introductory lesson yourself.
A beautiful cathedral where worshippers can still go, and have been going to for nearly a thousand years. If you love historical churches with breath-taking architecture, then this is one you’ll want to visit.
If you love plants and gardens, then the National Botanic Gardens is one place that should be on your list of places to visit. It boasts over 15,000 plant species so there’s plenty to admire. There’s the Great Palm House and Turner Curvilinear Range which are both award winners for conservation architecture. There are beautiful things to enjoy here such as rose gardens, ponds, rock gardens and herbaceous borders.
