There are dozens of interesting things to see in Dublin in 3 days. The Irish capital is a city that lets itself be loved. Small, welcoming, open to all types of people of all ages and backgrounds. A city with the soul of a pub and live music, from rainy afternoons to which it puts a good face and sunny days to which it is given unconditionally. A mischievous old city, awake and sly. She loves herself, but she also knows how to laugh at herself. That’s Dublin… And yes, you have to love it the way it is.
One of the advantages of the compact size of the city is that on a 3-day trip to Dublin you can get under its skin and get to know it in some depth.
After almost 9 years living in my beloved Dublin, here I leave you all the possible advices so that you can discover Dublin in 3 days.
Tips for visiting Dublin in 3 days
In this guide to Dublin in 3 days can not miss some practical tips to travel to Dublin:
Remember that in Ireland you pay in euros and the pound was left behind many years ago (I swear there are still people who ask me!) and you will not have to change currency to travel to Dublin. However, if you are going to visit the Giant’s Causeway or Belfast, you will have to pay something in pounds sterling, because Northern Ireland is part of the UK.
However, if you want to withdraw money from ATMs in Dublin, you will be charged a special commission when you are in a foreign bank. To avoid this scorn, you can take the Bnext card, which gives you your commissions back. It works very well for us on our travels.
Even if you travel in summer, never stop bringing an umbrella to Dublin. The weather in the Irish capital is more changeable than the opinion of a Spanish politician. At no time of the year can you trust anything. And what’s worse, not even on the same day.
Move around Dublin by public transport, which works quite well and covers all the places you see on a three-day trip to Dublin. Buses, trams and a surface train connecting, above all, the coastal neighborhoods (called DART), are the three options.
If you want to make the most of your visit to Dublin in 3 days, we advise you to buy the Dublin Pass, a card that will allow you free access to many of the best places to see in Dublin, such as the Guinness Storehouse, Christchurch Cathedral and the Wax Museum. In addition, you can also get on the tourist bus as many times as you like. If you use it well, it’s a good way to save money on your trip to Dublin in three days.
If you haven’t had time to prepare the trip properly or you like to know the destinations with a guide who knows the place well (I would accompany you if I continued living there!), you can hire one of the best excursions in Dublin in Spanish.
The city of Dublin is served by a single airport, which is located about 12 km from the center of the city. You can go from there to the centre by public transport or, if you prefer the comfort of being dropped off at your hotel, with a private transfer. All options are well explained in our article on how to get to the centre from Dublin airport and vice versa.
Travel insurance for travelling to Ireland
Are you one of those who still thinks that travel insurance is something dispensable? An insurance for a family with two children who wants to make a one-week trip to any European destination can cost around 45 euros (it doesn’t even reach 7 euros per day). Travel in family, couple or alone, we recommend arriving at the destination with a standard insurance that includes a minimum of 60,000 euros in hospitalization, repatriation, theft and cancellation costs. We have tried several companies and the last few times we have repeated with Iati because everything has gone perfectly. In addition you have a 5% discount to come from us through this link.
