Cycle along the Great Western Greenway — one of the world’s most scenic bike paths. Trace the steps of the legendary pirate queen, Grace O’Malley.

This pedestrian-only zone stretches for several blocks, boasting many international and local stores, as well as bookshops, arcades and boutiques mingled in with cafes and coffee shops.
Dubliners enjoy everything from sophisticated cuisine to traditional Irish fare, including lamb and pea mash, steamed cockles and mussels, slow-cooking pig belly, Guinness pie and crispy pig’s ear.
