1. Escape Boats Dublin

Escape Boats Dublin is perfect for anyone looking for a little adventure. Working together in groups from two to 10 players on the Zorg Ella boat, teams have to solve puzzles and crack codes to escape. Located at Grand Canal Docks, it’s a great activity if you have an hour or two free.

2. Skywalking Croke Park

Ireland’s largest sports venue, which happens to also be the venue for the Q4Q2019 conference – Croke Park is a must see for all visitors. However, if you have already been or have no interest in sport, then the Skywalk might be for you. Forty four meters from the ground, the tour gives visitors the chance to see Dublin from a new height and learn about Irish history.

3. Literary Pub Crawl

This tour has everything you could want – from quoting literary greats such as Joyce and Yeats, to hitting up some of the city’s best pubs. The Literary Pub Crawl kicks off at 7.30pm on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Thanks to the Vintage Tea Tours, visitors can enjoy tea and delicacies as they listen to 1950s jazz while travelling in a fully restored Routemaster bus. Every dietary need is catered to and the experience takes between 70 to 80 minutes. This is definitely a unique way to spend an afternoon.

5. Science Gallery

Recognised as a cultural venue, the Science Gallery presents science and contemporary art exhibitions, as well as workshops, talks and performances. With free admission and easy access in the city centre, the Science Gallery is a great way to broaden the mind.

6. Iveagh Gardens

9. Stella Cinemas

Located in Rathmines and Ranelagh, the Stella Cinemas aren’t your average film theatres. Recently restored, the venues offer people the chance to watch the latest films in 1920s style surroundings. A full menu and delicious cocktails are also on offer as you sit back and relax.

10. Token
