When is the best time to visit Dublin?
The best time to book flights to Dublin is in the summer. From June to August, the temperatures warm up (though you'll still need to pack light layers and a jacket) and the city ushers in its summer calendar of events. If you're a foodie, book your return flights to Dublin to coincide with the Taste of Dublin festival in June or the Big Grill BBQ & Craft Beer Festival in August. Other notable events worth attending including the Dublin LGBTQ Pride parade and the Dublin Irish Festival.
If you're on the hunt for cheap flights to Dublin, try for travel in September and November. The shoulder season sees the city quieten down, and it's possible to find great deals for the flight to Dublin Airport (DUB). It would be best if you packed warm jackets, sweaters and waterproof shoes.
In September, you can use your plane tickets to Dublin to attend the Dublin Fringe Festival or the Dublin Theatre Festival December to February is winter in Dublin. The chilly temperatures mean there’s usually a lull in travellers arriving at Dublin Airport (DUB). But if you pack your thermals, you might be lucky enough to find a good deal on airfare to Dublin. Plus, you can experience Christmas in Ireland and shop up a storm at the Christmas markets.
March to May is another shoulder season for the city. As temperatures begin to warm up, you can plan your tickets to Dublin around Ireland's biggest annual event, St. Patrick's Day. If you want to experience the holiday, you'll need to book your airfare to Dublin well in advance. Hotels fill up fast, and flights may be slightly pricer due to increase in demand.
What are Dublin's most famous landmarks and monuments?
Trinity College is located in the heart of Dublin. The university has a long history and is a must-see for first-timers travelling to The Emerald Isle on flights to Dublin. Founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I, it's the oldest university in Ireland and houses a collection of treasures. Some of the most notable pieces include the 9th-century Book of Kells, plus the Books of Durrow and Armagh. These artefacts and 200,000 other books are kept in the university's Long Room.
The Little Museum of Dublin
The Little Museum of Dublin is the best place to go to understand Dublin's past. It's a treasure trove of belongings and artefacts donated by the public. One of its most popular highlights is an exhibit dedicated to U2 with items donated by the band. The museum is open every day from 9.30am to 5pm, and entry costs EUR 7 ($AUD) per person.
The National Gallery of Ireland
Found yourself in Dublin on a rainy day and don’t know what to do? Head over to Kildare Street and visit the National Gallery of Ireland. It's where you'll find an extensive collection of Irish art, with works ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day. The museum’s galleries cover four levels, and you'll need at least an hour to explore. The museum is open Monday to Wednesday and Friday to Saturday and admission is free.
With more than 20 million visitors per year, the Guinness Storehouse is one of Ireland’s top attractions.

What should I pack for Dublin?
No matter what time of year you've bought your return flights to Dublin, there is always a high possibility of rain. Don't leave home without a pair of waterproof boots or closed-toe shoes so you can keep exploring despite the weather. They'll go along way in keeping your feet dry as you explore the streets of Dublin or hike along the Cliffs of Moher.
If you're a light sleeper, you should consider packing earplugs for your flights to Dublin. The Irish love their pubs, and if you're staying in the city centre (especially near Temple Bar) where there are a lot of bars you might struggle to fall asleep from the noise in the streets.
A windproof jacket is essential for anyone booking flights to Dublin. Even if you've bought tickets to Dublin for the summer, temperatures can still be cool, especially when compared to Australia. A good quality windproof jacket will keep you warm and dry, plus it doesn't take up much space in your luggage.
Don't let wet socks ruin your trip. When packing for your flights to Dublin, put a pair of moisture-wicking socks in your suitcase. If water does somehow get into your shoe, you won't have to walk around with soggy feet until you get back to your hotel.
