    Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Dublin, Ireland Your Home Away from Home

    The land of Vikings, a place of culture and unbridled views with a charm that surrounds its quaint tapestry. Ireland is the home of music and a home for you in your search for the ultimate holiday destination. Choosing a Dublin holidays base is the ideal way to go. This will give you access to the best of both worlds: busy and vibrant city life, or the gateway to some of Ireland’s rural gems.

    Things to Do on Holiday in Dublin, Ireland

    As the Capital, Dublin offers the best of both worlds - the history and the modern. Its coastal apartments and properties are luxury in themselves. Rent a Dublin apartment closer to the centre to have the delights of this place on your doorstep. Outside of the Capital is the quaint and a less bustling place; walk the canal banks in Monastrevin: the town oozes art and is the chosen home of writer Gerard Manly Hopkins. Newbridge, the home of the finest silverware from Irish silver mines, large enough to explore, small enough to know in a short while. Of course, being the capital means that you are never too far away from a good selection of museums and shops.

    Places to Visit on Holiday in Dublin, Ireland

    Whilst enjoying your holidays in Dublin, why not take time to head to the north? Dundalk and its surrounds offer UNESCO heritage sights such as the fabled seat of the high Kings of Ireland at Tara, and the mysterious Newgrange, as well as The Mourne Mountains, with world beating views over the sea at Carlingford. To the West lies Galway, a small city, a drove of cyclists make their way to work, the passers by speaking the ancient language of Irish. Jut in and out of the bars here to sample a nightlife like no other before taking to the waters and taking in the Aran Islands. Visit Dun Aeongus, an ancient hill fort more than ten millennia old and lay your head back over the cliff onto the Atlantic Ocean. Your world will be turned upside down, a half place between heaven and earth. That is Ireland for you.

    Weather in Dublin, Ireland

    You may know Ireland as a wet place and yes it does rain, but it is so changeable that even if you take a soaking the sun will soon be out to dry you off. The southeast of the country is the sunniest part and the capital can receive far less rain than other parts of the island. Your Dublin accommodation should see you basking in temperatures of around 26 degrees Celsius during the summer. Winter can get a bit chilly in this part of the country as it is farther away from the influence of The Atlantic.
