Dublin — 5 nights

Fair City

A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Dublin is known for museums, nightlife, and sightseeing. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: examine the collection at Kilmainham Gaol Museum, don't miss a visit to Temple Bar, step into the grandiose world of Dublin Castle, and contemplate the long history of Saint Patrick's Cathedral.

Plan my Dublin trip by asking Klarna Trips to come up with tips and suggestions.

Los Angeles, USA to Dublin is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Dublin due to the time zone difference. Prepare for slightly colder weather when traveling from Los Angeles in May: high temperatures in Dublin hover around 59°F and lows are around 43°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) to allow time to travel to Inishmore.

Ireland travel guide

Emerald Isle
Gentle green hills, Guinness, leprechauns, and friendly folks characterize this small isle of a country. From the busy big city of Dublin to cozy countryside, the emerald isle harbors a varied natural landscape and is steeped in tradition. Visitors can immerse themselves in the native Irish language by visiting a Gaeltacht, or Irish-speaking region of the country, where traditional culture thrives. The Irish are known for being open and welcoming: from the moment you land to the moment you leave, you'll be greeted with "cead mile failte"--a hundred thousand welcomes.
