Dublin — 4 nights

A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Dublin is known for museums, nightlife, and sightseeing. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: see the interesting displays at Kilmainham Gaol Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Trinity College Dublin, stroll around St Stephens Green, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Jameson Distillery Bow St..

To see where to stay, photos, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Dublin trip planner.

Perth, Australia to Dublin is an approximately 24-hour flight. Traveling from Perth to Dublin, you'll gain 8 hours due to the time zone difference. In June, daytime highs in Dublin are 20°C, while nighttime lows are 10°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Mon) early enough to drive to Kilkenny.

Kilkenny — 2 nights

The country's smallest city in terms of population, Kilkenny boasts a rich cultural heritage and diverse tourist attractions that include well-preserved medieval architecture, exciting nightlife, a vibrant culinary scene, and abundant shopping opportunities.
On the 5th (Tue), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Black Abbey, take in the spiritual surroundings of Jerpoint Abbey, then contemplate the long history of Jerpoint Park, then explore the galleries of Rothe House and Garden, and finally head outdoors with Hawkeye School of Falconry. Here are some ideas for day two: stroll through Kilkenny Castle, then paddle through the water with Go With The Flow - River Adventures, and then step into the grandiose world of Ferns Castle.

Plan my trip to Kilkenny with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

You can drive from Dublin to Kilkenny in 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or take a train. Traveling from Dublin in July, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Kilkenny, with lows around 16°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Wed) early enough to catch the flight back home.

Emerald Isle
Gentle green hills, Guinness, leprechauns, and friendly folks characterize this small isle of a country. From the busy big city of Dublin to cozy countryside, the emerald isle harbors a varied natural landscape and is steeped in tradition. Visitors can immerse themselves in the native Irish language by visiting a Gaeltacht, or Irish-speaking region of the country, where traditional culture thrives. The Irish are known for being open and welcoming: from the moment you land to the moment you leave, you'll be greeted with "cead mile failte"--a hundred thousand welcomes.
