3 Best Day Trips from Dublin

Ireland is full of rich history, warm hospitality, and diverse natural wonders-and thanks to its relatively compact size, it’s easy to get a feel for many of its highlights, even if you’ve only got a few days to spare. Even better, a day trip or weekend jaunt from Dublin will get you out of the city-which these days is humming with global influences and an influx of international expats-and out into the smaller towns and scenic countryside, where the locals always make you feel welcome with some good craic and a perfectly pulled pint.

An easy drive will ferry you to Ireland’s largest national park and ancient monastic sites in County Wicklow, or-if you’ve got more time-over to west coast stunners like the Cliffs of Moher, in County Clare. Alternatively, you can be in Belfast in less than two hours by train, a city that represents another facet of the Emerald Isle’s story. No matter where you go, plenty of charming hotels await if you feel like lingering, including ones set in former castles and manor estates, and in the historic building where the Titanic was designed.
