Dublin guide for ordinary travelers

Wanderlust Wonderland brings you: a travel guide for ordinary travelers, with must-sees, tips and tricks and the most delicious food, for ordinary travelers, like you and me.

I loved Dublin. A small city filled with friendly people, lots of highlights and amazingly cheap bookstores. When we had to leave we already decided that we should come back one day, sooner rather than later.

The city’s highlights

  • The Garden of Remembrance
  • Dublin Castle
  • St. Stephen’s Green Park
  • Dublinia
  • Have a tour through the Leprechaun museum
  • See a show at Gate Theatre

Must do’s for booklovers

  • Dublin writer’s museum
  • Chapter’s bookstore! An enormous bookstore with amazingly cheap books. Must for every bookworm!
  • Take a stroll through the city at night
  • See The book of Kells at Trinity College
  • Gawk at first editions at Ulysses’ rare books
  • Visit the National Library and the Chester Beatty Library (at Dublin Castle)
  • There’s a Ulysses tour where you will learn more about the novel written by James Joyce and his view on the city.

Must Eat

  • Have some cake and homemade lemonade at Dolce Sicily. Yum!
  • The best sushi in town you’ll find at Yamamori. Simply delicious!
  • More amazing cake you’ll find at Queen of Tarts
  • Yummy foods at Grand Central

Best souvenirs

  • Books from Chapter’s
  • There’s a lot of cutesie souvenirshops all around town. I loved them, with traditional Irish music and green trinkets everywhere and for some reason, lots of cute sheep.
  • Chocolate filled with Baileys!

Tips and Tricks

The city offers lots and lots of daytours from Dublin towards any other amazing part in the country. We visited Glendalough and Guiness Lake with a tour we booked at Paddywagon tours. I can highly recommend this! Not only will you see more of the beautiful nature Ireland has to offer, your guide will teach you more about the country and it’s history.
