50 things to do in Dublin

What’s in the jar?

My girlfriend is Parisian. She moved to Dublin in 2016 and was a little distraught at the thought of leaving her wonderful bread filled homeland. Oh she liked Dublin alright. But to really make her fall in love with the place, I made a jar for her, filled with 50 things to do, to eat, to learn, to see, to discover. The more people saw it and admired it, the more we thought - ‘let’s make this a real thing’.

There are five categories of activity in the jar; Outdoor, Food, Art & Culture, History and Pubs with ten of each category to discover.

The beauty of the jar is the element of surprise. Depending on what kind of activity you’re looking for, choose a colour and from there it’s up to you to go and explore. Or pick several activities and have a big Dublin day out.

The 50 things were chosen by us and some of our closest friends who know and love Dublin. Your goal is to finish all 50!

Thanks to the incredible Fatti Burke for making my original creation look so beautiful.

Dublin city and its surrounding areas have so much to offer when it comes to getting outdoors. From hiking in the hills to walks by the irish sea to lazing around in a sunny park, it's really a city which is close to nature. choose the green squares for sunny days!



There's a route through dublin city from north to south which takes you all the way without crossing a pub. interesting? nah. dublin is famous across the world for it's pubs. There are pubs of all shapes and sizes, from cocktail bars to classic old man joints. Great for all weather!

Art & Culture

Yeats, joyce, heaney, beckett, u2; the cranberries, dublin's art and culture scene is something which is very close to our hearts. There is so much to do, learn and enjoy about the artists and cultural figures who have made their mark over the centuries. Good for a rainy day!



from the celts to the vikings to the normans to the british to independent ireland, dublin is the epicentre of irish history. both sad and triumphant, there are so many stories to be heard, museums to be visited, architecture to admire, it ain't boring that's for sure. 



bacon and cabbage is an old irish specialty. sure you can get it if that's your thing, but dublin's food scene is thriving. the celtic tiger brought ethnic foods from around the globe and not only that but irish chefs have brought about a renaissance with a keen focus on ireland's quality produce.
