The O2 is the largest indoor arena in Ireland, with a 14,000 capacity, and host to some of worlds best acts in the live entertainment sector including U2 and Guns N’ Roses. If you’re lucky enough to have secured tickets to one of its shows then this Secret Hotel is handily located nearby. For those after more intimate evening entertainment, why not check out some of the local live gigs in some of Dublins quirky bars and pubs. The Church which is now a café, restaurant and club was once a working church in the 17th century, and it’s this unique back story that attracts over 60,000 visitors a year to this live music venue. Another unique way to experience the local music is to join the Traditional Irish Musical Pub Crawl. You’ll be escorted by two professional musicians who will entertain you with the history of Irish music whilst performing live at a series of pubs and bars located in the Temple Bar area. It will give you the chance to try out a few venues and of course enjoy your favourite tipple whilst listening to great music.

Dublin is more than just a city break, with a beautiful coastal area waiting to be explored. Take the children down to Killiney Beach to explore the rock pools and pick out the shells from the pebbled shore. If you’re lucky you might even spot dolphins here too. For thrill seekers, there are a range of watersports available including kayaking and sailing. It’s a beautiful way to see the Irish coast whilst you work up an appetite for a seafood supper back on dry land. Aqua Restaurant in Howth is highly recommended for its scenic views of the coast and fresh fish dishes.

For romantic getaways, surprise your loved one with a hot air balloon over this glorious city and surrounding countryside. Toast your special occasion with a glass of bubbly whilst you admire the views and each other.
