Phoenix Park is one of the largest walled city parks in Europe, it’s big enough to envelop many of the city’s attractions, such as Dublin Zoo, the Wellington Monument, and the Magazine Fort.
The Irish are world-renowned for their terrific sense of humor, and nowhere is this more evident than in Dublin’s public transport network! There are 2 unconnected tram lines and trains mainly serve the outer rim of the city. The bus network is extensive but a tough nut to crack for visitors (see dublinbus.ie). The good news, however, is that most of the sights are just a short walk from each other in the heart of the city!
You could see the sights of Dublin in a day or two, but remember this is a city of exemplary museums, exciting music and sports events, and enticing modern restaurants. Book a week to delve into its best kept secrets!
For the best weather, plan to visit around September, but for the celebrations, come in mid-March for the St. Patrick’s Day parade and festivities.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It was a great tour with a lot of exciting Irish stories.
I was on the tour to Howth by myself and I really enjoyed it. Not just because of the beautiful sights and the harbor, also because we were with the excellent guide Carl. He hasn`t just told us a lot of stuff we would forget in the next moment (p.e. dates), he made out of everything even if its boring an interesting story. And that’s the clue to make history interesting. He also tried to connect people who didn’t know each other, especially the ones who came by themselves and we’re kinda lonely. Thanks a lot for this sometimes funny and really entertaining tour! Only thing I would criticize is the timing at the beginning of the tour. The information box says that you should be 15 minutes before the tour begins in front of the city hall. The guides came 10 minutes after the start. Maybe it`s just an “Irish thing” and the pressure of a german always being on time or earlier, but I wanted to add that. I hope I could help you with my review.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Absolutely INCREDIBLE!! A must see and do, I definitely recommend!
Our tour guide Eoin was an absolute pleasure, from the very beginning to the absolute end he was knowledge about absolutely EVERYTHING and hilarious! I learned more about Ireland from him on this day trip than in all the museums and places I visited! It was spectacular! I was literally writing down facts as fast as I could while he kept saying more in between great humor, being knowledgeable about everything you pass from the meetup point to the sites, he was so helpful to get everyone the pictures they were wanting too!
