Things to do in Dublin and the East of Ireland

Dublin is such a vibrant and exciting city and there is so much to see and do. In this sense, Discover Dublin is quite right to dub the city "The Culture Hub" - Dublin is a capital bursting with culture and is a must-see on any tour of Ireland.

For a foot-stomping knees-up, go to a traditional Irish céilí or go on a musical pub crawl around the city. If you're feeling creative, try the Irish Drumming Experience a fun-filled night of music where you are the musicians.

If you're ready for something a bit quieter, then drift into the mystical world of ancient Irish Mythology and Folklore, realised before you by traditional Irish storytellers painting pictures with the past, featuring leprechauns, Banshees and even the big black dog. Discover Dublin cautions that "this event will have you wrapped in its grasp. With stories to make you laugh, cry and jump for joy the Irish storyteller is forever the roguish cheeky chap or the devilish cailín bán (pretty Irish girl)."
