Dublin

Famous for Guinness

Dublin has incredible scenery, a medieval city with captivating living history. It has charming streets, historical sites, ancient buildings, memorials and street art. A city rich in myths and legends with spooky stories to entrance visitors.

The flights from Auckland to Dublin take over 27 hours, depending on the airline and transit points chosen. Contact your local Global Travel Network Agent to find the best possible airfares and suggestions to design your ideal holiday.

It is the capital of the Republic of Ireland with historic sites such as Dublin Castle which dates back to the 13th century, St Patrick’s Cathedral is where tradition and history are alive, founded in 1191. This stunning structure is the largest and tallest church in Ireland with its 43 metre ornate spire. Trinity College is considered the most prestigious university in Ireland. Established in 1592 its library has a copy of every book that is published in Ireland and the UK. The Temple Bar is arguably Ireland’s most famous pub in Dublin. Its history dates back to 1599 when Sir William Temple, a well known philosopher and teacher built his house and gardens around the Temple Bar site. It is home to Ireland’s largest collection of about 450 bottles of rare and interesting whisky’s from all over the world. Phoenix park is a large green, tree lined urban park, home to the Dublin Zoo. Kilmainham Gaol, is a popular tourist spot that used to be a prison home to Ireland’s criminals and Irish freedom fighters.

St Patrick’s Day is huge in Dublin and is the biggest day of the year and the whole city gets involved. March 17th has become a global celebration of Irish culture. It is in memory of Ireland’s patron saint, St Patrick who ministered Christianity in Ireland back in the fifth century. It is both a religious and cultural celebration where people dress in green as they believe wearing green makes them invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who pinch anyone not wearing green.

Ireland’s most recognisable symbol is the Shamrock, legend has it that St Patrick used it to help convert the pagan Irish into Christians, he explained the holy trinity detailing each leaf represents the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, the fourth leaf is believed to be where we get luck from. Dublin is the birthplace of Guinness, a dark Irish dry stout beer that was developed in the brewery of Arthur Guinness at St James Gate, Dublin in 1759 and became one of the most successful beer brands in the world. As Guinness  does not travel well, it is said to taste better in Ireland. With lots of pubs to sample Guinness, here are some of the pubs recommended: The Long Hall, The Stags Head, Grogans, Mulligans, The Swan, The Palace, the Confession box and many more. If you have a sense of humour, visit the Leprechaun Museum and be fascinated by the Little Museum of Dublin.

The Consolidation team at GTN are excellent to deal with.  They are efficient and friendly, and when there has been queries with airlines or airfares, they have always sought answers and found solutions to the problem wherever possible.  The QuikTravel system is easy to use, as well as the additional information on the system around commissions, airline contacts, policies, as well as the summary of recent changes in fares & rules from airlines.  GTN is an excellent partner, and the small personal nature of the team is a good fit for our business
