Dublin City Break

Dublin City Break


I’m looking to get away for a few days with some student friends. We don’t have much to spend on a break away so perhaps we will stay in Ireland. We’re a mix of history and art students so we love to explore the various sites and tourists attractions that a city has to offer. I would love any suggestions on where you think will be the best place to visit for a good time and on a tight student budget.


If you want a lively vibrant city which is rich in history and culture then look no further than your own capital city! Dublin has everything you would expect from any European capital city – museums, art galleries and of course world-famous nightlife. A trip to Dublin doesn’t need to cost the earth and there are plenty of sites around the city which are free of charge and well worth a visit. In fact, according to the latest Hotel Price Index, Dublin is one of the best value capital cities in Europe.
