Whether you are a Dublin native or travelling from around the country, our capital city has everything you need for the best staycation in Ireland. We have mountains to explore, a stunning coastline to admire and some of the best shopping in all of Europe. Plan the best staycation in Ireland this year and make sure to check out some of Dublin’s top tourist attractions.
Outdoor Adventure Dublin
Dublin is lined on one side by the most spectacular coastline looking into the Irish Sea. From rugged cliff walks to Sunday strolls along piers and promenades, the Dublin coastline is a sight not to be missed.
We also have hikes and walks in the Dublin Mountains, Dublin City tours and many parks with vast green spaces dotted across the county so you can explore the great outdoors on your staycation this year.
Best Indoor Activities Dublin
While outdoor adventures in Dublin are great when its warm and dry, the weather in Ireland is infamously rainy, even during the summer months. If you find yourself here during a bad spell, don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Dublin has everything from indoor activities for children, cinemas, excellent shopping, covered Dublin tour buses and indoor attractions like Guinness Storehouse and Kilmainham Gaol.
We also have many sightseeing activities in Dublin for free, like our National Museums and Galleries.
Dublin's Hidden Gems
While Dublin is a tourist city, it’s not all trad music and pints of Guinness. On your staycation in Dublin, explore ‘Alternative Dublin’ as well as the usual tourist hot spots.
Ireland’s capital is a mecca for alternative shopping, with vintage and second-hand shops popping up across the city.
We have so many unique local cafes, restaurants and bars, far removed from the tourist trap that is Temple Bar. We also have museums and attractions that are aimed at a more local crowd, like the Little Museum of Dublin or 14 Henrietta Street which gives you a look into life in Dublin in Georgian times.
Day Trips from Dublin
If you’d like to explore further afield, Aspect Hotel Park West is ideally located for day trips from Dublin or onward travel.
Dublin is well connected by road and public transport making us an ideal spot to explore Ireland’s Ancient East. Why not take a trip to Glendalough, the most notable monastic settlement and a beautiful place for a walk and a picnic.
You could also explore the history and architecture of Irelands ancient East with a trip to one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites, Newgrange. You could even head further afield on a day trip to Belfast; it’s less than two hours’ drive.
Best of all, Aspect Hotel Park West offers free parking for our guests for the duration of your stay.
