Best pub in Dublin

The Bernard Shaw

The Bernard Shaw is a bit of a walk from the city centre, but it's worth it! There is nowhere else in Dublin where you can drink a pint of beer and eat a pizza on a converted bus. The Bernard Shaw is a great place to meet new people and practise your English.

Traditional Music Pub

The Cobblestone

You can't visit Ireland without hearing some great traditional Irish music. If you want to hear some real Irish musicians, you need to visit The Cobblestone in Smithfield. Every night of the week you can hear some of Ireland's best musicians playing for free.

Places to see in Dublin

Howth

Only a short trip on the city train (the DART) and you are in Howth. Howth is a beautiful port just outside Dublin city centre. If you visit Howth, you have to try the fresh fish and chips and go for a walk in the beautiful surrounding hills.

Glendalough

At Everest we obviously love the mountains and highly recommend that all our students climb the Wicklow mountains. In the middle of the Wicklow mountains you will find a magical valley called Glendalough.

Glendalough, Ireland

Phoenix Park

In Dublin city it is possible to get lost in one of Europe's largest city parks. Phoenix park has football, cricket and polo pitches, herds of deer, miles of walking and cycling tracks as well as the home of the Irish president.

Bray

If you take the DART and go south, you will eventually reach Bray. This beautiful historic seafront has been preserved and is a perfect place to spend a sunny day walking on the beach and eating and drinking in some of its fantastic bars and restaurants.
