St. Patrick’s Day is today! Exciting, huh? If only I didn’t have a million inches of snow outside my window and could actually go to a parade, but oh well. I’ll live. Instead of wearing green and cheering in the streets, I’ll settle for sharing a couple amazing photos that will inspire you to visit Dublin in the near future.

I went to Dublin (and Ireland) waaaaay back in April of 2014. I missed St. Patrick’s Day by quite a few weeks, but I still had an amazing time. Dublin is a super safe and fun city. It’s strong tourist infrastructure, friendly people, fascinating history, and more make it a wonderful place for travelers – especially nervous or solo female travelers.

Happy viewing! Book your ticket soon and tell me about all your epic Irish adventures! And don’t forget double checking your ultimate Ireland packing list. You want to be prepared.

St. Stephen’s Green. Note: I can still clearly remember how jetlagged I was here. I almost passed out on a park bench. Classy, huh?

Of course, Dublin’s one of the greatest literary cities ever. So many references to Oscar Wilde everywhere! Be still my nerdy heart.

Trinity College is incredible. Part of me wishes I earned my Masters degree here, but I suppose we can’t have everything in life. I settled for roaming the campus fifteen million times.

It doesn’t get much better than Trinity College’s library, though. Be sure to see the Book of Kells! The line is totally worth it!

Dublin Castle and pretty yellow flowers. Part of me would love to live in a castle, but I don’t think I could handle all the cleaning, haha. I wanted to visit more museums at this point but didn’t have much of a chance. Take a visit to Dublin’s EPIC museum if you want something different!

    You are right, I’m inspired! We’re heading to Dublin, and more of Ireland, in June. I can’t wait. It’s going to be a pretty big trip. I hope we see as many flowers as you did. So pretty.

    While I think that there are more beautiful places that Ireland has to offer other than Dublin, it is still a must if touring through the country! I really enjoyed all the history that Dublin had to offer, it was really fascinating

    Dublin is small enough for a quick getaway with quite a few nice things to see and do (besides drinking Guinness!). My favorite was the library!

    I went in January. It was pretty cold, but we had a good time exploring the city. Some stuff I passed by in a car or bus but never got out to really be able to see it. Loved Trinity College.

    Thanks for your insight into Dublin. I have yet to visit Ireland and it looks like Dublin has the castle life that Ireland appears to be recognized for. Your photos are inspiring me to dive into Ireland travel a little further.

    Lovely photos! Dublin is definitely on my bucket list as it looks like a very beautiful town. How cute is this pink door on your Photos!

    Gorgeous photos of Dublin. On my only trip to Ireland, we experienced an airline strike and had to fly home from Shannon, missing our stay in Dublin. I am yearning to return.

    Oh I want to visit Dublin so bad. I love the playwrights wall, how cool! I planned my husband a golf trip to Dublin a few years ago and fell in love with his photos of Trinity. Temple Bar is one of my lifetime bucket list items. Thanks for a good dose of wanderlust.
