Ireland has a beautiful coastline that is dotted with traditional fishing villages, stunning countryside plus exciting cities! One of those cities that you can visit is Dublin; it's a versatile city that has something for every traveller.A great way to start your holidays is by collecting a car hire in Dublin Airport, that way you can head straight for the city without any delays! Once you have arrived in the city it's a good idea to leave your hire car at your hotel and explore on foot.

    Here are our top 5 free things to do and see in Dublin city:

    1. Museums
    Dublin has plenty of interesting museums that you can visit for free. The national Museum in Collins Barracks showcases the military history of Ireland, the National Museum in Kildare Street is where you can learn all about the Celtic, Viking, Prehistoric and Medieval history of Ireland, and then you have the Natural History Museum.

    2. Parks & Gardens
    A leisurely stroll through Dublin's parks and gardens is a great way to spend a few hours. The Iveagh Gardens are themed on a French Formal garden and English Landscapes plus they have a great range of exotic fauna on display. There is also a beautiful garden area behind Dublin castle that is more used by the locals than the tourists!

    3. City Walks
    The city has a number of walks that you can follow and by taking the walks you will see some of Dublin's best loved attractions. The walk along the Banks of the Royal Canal takes you past a traditional Lockkeeper's cottage followed by the very modern structures at Croke Park.

    4. Churches
    Admission into most of the city churches is free and by visiting them you can admire and enjoy the beautiful interiors that have been immaculately preserved through the ages. St. Mary's Abbey was first built in 1139 and was once one of the wealthiest abbeys in Ireland, and St Audoens Catholic Church has a huge Organ located above the entrance doors.

    5. Coastal Walks
    No trip to Dublin is complete without visiting the ocean and this is where having your own transport comes in handy! You can hop in your Dublin car hire and drive towards the dramatic coastline. You could stop anywhere along the coast and set off on a scenic walk; the Howth Coastal Path is probably one of the most popular walks, with the journey taking you from Howth Village and on top the cliff tops.
