Whether you’re in Dublin for a few days or a longer stay, you’ll find culture, charm and mighty craic (good times and great vibes) everywhere you turn. Perched just north of the River Liffey, Ruby Molly makes a great base for exploring.
For shopaholics, Henry Street and Mary Street
are packed with high street names and vintage stores – all within five minutes of our front door. For something a bit different, follow your nose to Moore Street Market. This Dublin icon offers everything from fruit and flowers to clothes and handcrafted gifts. Grab a coffee and dive in for a spot of treasure-hunting.
Bars & pubs
If you’re after something stronger, cross the river to the cobbled streets of Temple Bar, with its cosy pubs and lively bars. Grab a Guinness or a snifter of whiskey, sit back and watch the world go by.
When hunger strikes, there’s no shortage of top-notch restaurants to choose between. From fresh seafood and Irish stew to soda bread and fluffy scones, plus an ever-growing array of veggie and vegan spots, there’s something to suit every appetite.
After dinner, the party really picks up. The hub of Dublin’s nightlife is south of the river, with bars, pubs and clubs dotted from Temple Bar down through Grafton Street and Wexford Street. Along the way you’ll find everything from traditional music to karaoke, secretive speakeasies and chic cocktail bars to homely pubs serving expertly poured Guinness.
Nature & culture
The morning after, blow away the cobwebs with a bracing walk in one of the city’s many pretty parks. Phoenix Park is a popular spot, while lesser-known Iveagh Gardens is worth a wander, too. For bonus culture points, head to Merrion Square to snap a selfie with Oscar Wilde. One of the city’s most famous sons, he now reclines on a boulder in statue form, a stone’s throw from his childhood home.
