Dublin has so much to offer from beautiful coastal scenery to a bustling city dotted with historical landmarks. Dublin Castle is one of Dublin’s most historical attractions, steeped in history and should not be missed. The castle itself was built in 1204 and is located in the very centre of Dublin City, on the south side of the River Liffey, in route from Trinity College to Christchurch Cathedral. The grounds hold two museums, gardens, government buildings and state apartments and are home to the famous Chester Beatty Library.
The castle was a major part of the 1916 uprising and the 2016 centenary celebrations and visitors can book a specialised tour ‘The Revolutionary Road’ which is highly recommended. Numerous cultural events are held at the castle from concerts, theatre productions, poetry readings and much more.
Dublin Castle is easily reached from Clayton Hotel Dublin Airport. The city is a mere 15 minutes by taxi or alternatively in-house guests can take the complimentary hotel shuttle bus to the airport and from Dublin Airport take the No.16 bus to the city centre. Dublin Castle is then a 15 minute stroll from O’Connell Street, across the River Liffey and through Temple Bar.
