Going to Ireland? If you’re going to Ireland or Dublin and don’t have much time, you can follow this Itinerary for the ultimate one day Dublin experience! Now this doesn’t have to be done in just one day and can be split up over a couple of days. However if you only have one day to see Dublin this itinerary will let you experience the best mix of culture and history. Everything in this Itinerary I visited and recommend based off my personal enjoyment.
