About Dublin

The cosmopolitan and lively Irish capital should be a must on anybody's European itenerary. Like any European capital it would be impossible to describe all there is to see and do.

The number one attraction is the Guinness Storehouse - the home of the "The Black Stuff" Dublin's world famous dry stout. Other attractions include St Patrick's cathedral - what would Ireland be without St Paddy after all? The National Gallery, Botanic Gardens, the National Acquatic Centre, Dublin Zoo, the list is almost endless.

However, when you leave Dublin, what you'll remember above all else is the atmposphere: the small pubs filled with dancing and music and perhaps above all else the friendliness of the locals.

Dublin Ferry Port is Ireland's largest and busiest ferry port and is situated right in the heart of Dublin, one of the most vibrant capital cities in Europe. It is situated just 2 miles away from the Dublin city centre and is easily accessible by car or by public transport.

    • Access to accommodation deck difficult. Cabin clean and comfortable. Out bound sailing was at least two hours late leaving. Ashore and on board staff helpful.
