Dose up on Dublin’s culture and craic

Livelier than ever, the Irish capital promises culture and craic a-plenty – plus wild adventures in the great outdoors, right on its doorstep.



This bookshop and restaurant is a local institution, inside a rickety townhouse by the Liffey. Riffle through its new and second-hand titles over a coffee or head upstairs for home cooking of seasonal local produce, the likes of 28-day-aged Irish beef, Dingle Bay crab and chocolate torte (; 40 Lower Ormond Quay; noon–5pm & 5.30pm–10.30pm; mains from £20).


Ireland’s famously literary capital is an excellent place to catch a play. Head to the Gate Theatre, whose elegant 18th-century surrounds have hosted many a historic debut. Irish, European and American classics make up the bill, and you might even catch a movie star sharpening their craft, as Orson Welles and many others did before them (; Cavendish Row, Parnell Sq; tickets from £17).
