How to Get Off the Beaten Path in Dublin

How to Get Off the Beaten Path in Dublin

There are certain Dublin attractions that aren’t to be missed: the Guinness Storehouse, Grafton Street, and the Book of Kells to name a few. But don’t be afraid to venture down Dublin’s less-trodden paths, where hidden delights wait to be discovered. Here’s how to beat the crowds. 

Pearse Lyons Whiskey Distillery

If you’re a fan of Irish whiskey, you’re likely to have Jameson Distillery Bow St. on your checklist of must-sees. But if you want to veer away from the mainstream, head to the boutique Pearse Lyons distillery. Opened in 2017, this small-scale producer is a new kid on the block, though its whiskey offerings are already garnering praise. Pearse Lyons is also home to a brewery set inside a former church. 

Dublin Bay

Dublin is a coastal city, though that’s something you can easily forget if you never leave the center. To the north, you’ll find charming seaside communities such as Howth and Malahide, while to the south, the likes of Bray, Killiney, and Dalkey all deliver salty air and sea views. 

Croke Park

Though it’s no secret to Dubliners, Croke Park—where the Gaelic Athletics Association (GAA) is headquartered—is often overlooked by out-of-towners. Situated just north of the city center, Ireland’s largest stadium can be explored as part of a tour. It also has an on-site museum dedicated to the rules and cultural significance of hurling and Gaelic football.

The Dublin and Wicklow Mountains

The scenic peaks of the Dublin and Wicklow mountains are less than an hour’s drive from Dublin city center, though they feel a million miles away. Highlights include the monastic remains of Glendalough valley; cozy pubs such as Johnnie Fox’s; and the spooky Montpellier Hill, where the ruined shell of an 18th-century building—known locally as the Hellfire Club—is said to have been the setting for satanic activity.
