3 Must-Do Honeymoon Activities in Dublin, Ireland

Posted by Adam Warner

The capital city of Dublin has a bounty of attractions for honeymooners -- many of which are in easy walking distance of each another.

Whether you're visiting Ireland's capital to check out historic sites like St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin Castle, and Trinity College, or to embrace the cosmopolitan lifestyle by sampling Temple Bar, O'Connell Street, or Grafton Street, the city offers something for everyone.

Below, we reveal three can't-miss experiences that will ensure your honeymoon to Ireland is unforgettable.


Brewery Visit & Pub Crawl

Make your way to Guinness Storehouse for a brewery tour of Ireland's most famous brand. After taking in the impressive exhibits and presentations, cap the experience at the Gravity Bar for a complimentary pint complete with 360-degree views of the city.

From here, head straight over to Temple Bar. Featuring narrow alleyways and quaint cobblestone streets, this lively area in central Dublin is packed with authentic pubs and restaurants. Cap your day by visiting The Brazen Head, officially Ireland's oldest pub. Enjoy a final pint before embarking on a romantic stroll along the River Liffey at dusk.


Stroll Around Trinity College

Founded by Queen Elizabeth I in 1592, the historic university is home to gorgeous ivy-covered buildings, the magnificent Trinity College Library, and the Book of Kells, easily one of Ireland's greatest treasures. Afterwords, grab a snack nearby and find a bench in one of the leafy courtyards. Trinity features a number of charming squares and green areas that serve as a peaceful refuge in the middle of a bustling city.


A Performance at Abbey Theatre

Cross to the north side of the Liffey for a production at Ireland's national theatre, founded in 1904 by W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory. Indulge in the work of William Shakespeare or the latest performances by notable Irish playwrights. Before the performance, enjoy dinner at Michelin star restaurant Chapter One before taking in some traditional Irish music at the Abbey Bar.
