Dublin: where the grass is greener, the Guinness flows freely and you can experience the true Irish culture! Dublin will be whatever you want it to be, whether that's a European cultural capital or simply the home of the 'craic'.
Is it's a sample of whiskey you're looking for then the Jameson Distillery won't disappoint. Branding a tour of the 228-year-old Jameson Distillery as hip, edgy, and fun is no simple task. Some would argue it’s as difficult as two Irishmen going to the pub for one drink – impossible in a culture where buying rounds is second nature! This tour is well worth the visit, and not only for the tasting session!
A trip to Dublin would not be complete without a visit to the Guiness storehouse. As your introductory tour guide may inform you, Guinness is not in fact black. It’s actually a really, really dark shade of red. The simple ingredients are Hops, Barley, Water and Yeast, and you get the best taste by smelling, swirling, sipping and swallowing.
Your first Guinness sample comes midway through the tour and is the perfect appetite whetting, lip licking precursor to the full pint at the end in the Gravity Bar. Got a taste for it? Then don't miss Temple Bar with its famous live music scene.
Avalon House Hostel Dublin has a perfect location in the centre of Dublin. Add this to a dedicated team of staff and regular live music events, it's obvious why Avalon House is Dublin's Famous Hostel!
