I spend a lot of time posting about my travels in Ireland, but I often forget just how amazing Dublin can be. Most travelers make Dublin their city of arrival and departure without taking the time to take in the capitol city. One of my favorite spots is the Dublin Docklands….there are plenty of spots to grab a good cocktail or relax with a pint in a pub if you wish. I love the architecture of the Docklands just outside of the Marker Hotel and the Bord Gais Energy Theatre.
Any traveler will enjoy strolling around taking in the sites and making the short walk into city centre for some craic. The Dublin Docklands is home to the Marker Hotel where one can have rooftop drinks if the day is sunny. Or the Ferryman Pub is a hotspot during happy hour for both locals and tourists alike. The beautiful Samuel Beckett Bridge and Sean O’Casey bridge are just a minute walk away too.
I personally love the atmosphere of the Docklands and the history is pretty cool if that’s your thing. I’ve gotten some pretty phenomenal photos around this area, especially at sunset and after dark. I recommend getting on Air BnB and checking out where you can stay in the Docklands area….you won’t regret it! Get out there and travel, my friends, and make a stop in Dublin…..you won’t regret it!
