La vibrante ville de Dublin, capitale de l’Irlande, offre une vie culturelle riche et palpitante. Accessible en quelques heures de vol depuis la plupart des villes européennes, un séjour à Dublin promet une escapade revitalisante loin du quotidien professionnel. Plongez-vous dans l’atmosphère envoûtante de la culture irlandaise pour mieux comprendre ses traditions, sa langue anglophone, et peut-être même explorer son système juridique.

Dublin, Ireland is a great place to spend the weekend. There are countless local cultural experiences, from history museums to the Guinness Storehouse, and there is really no better way to get to know the Emerald Isle. Whether you are interested in learning about the Irish legal system or simply a weekend of dining and shopping, Dublin has something for you. Why not take a trip, and plunge into Irish culture? Follow me as I take you on a weekend trip around this wonderful city.

Getting to Dublin is easy. If you are travelling from Paris, there are regular flights operated by Air Lingus, Ryanair and Vueling. Once you arrive at Dublin Airport, you can grab a 30 minute taxi directly to the city centre or to your hotel. There is no shortage of accommodation, either. Although the city is expensive, you will have your pick of luxury hotels. The following are some I would recommend –

The Dean for a trendy and fun experience;

The Shelbourne for its location, comfort and luxury;

The Gibson if you plan to attend any live shows at the 3 Arena.

Of course, there are many others. Third-party booking sites such as or TripAdvisor are a great place to start your search.

Once you have checked into your hotel, take to the streets of Dublin for an evening meal and perhaps an apéritif. The city is home to many restaurants, whether you are looking for Irish, Italian or even Mexican food. If you would like a piece of home, you should stop into Pichet for your Friday night dinner. 777 is a great option if you enjoy authentic Mexican margaritas and tacos. The Pearl Brasserie, a fusion of French and Asian food, can offer a leisurely lunch. Sprezzatura serves delicious fresh pasta, Host serves a wide variety of sharing plates and Chapter One is a fantastic fine dining experience. If you want to eat like a local, why not try the beef and Guinness stew in Quays, located in the lively Temple Bar?

On Saturday morning, if you don’t fancy a buffet breakfast in your accommodation, why not go for brunch? Brother Hubbard is well known for its unique, Middle-East inspired dishes and great service. If this doesn’t appeal, you could try Alma, centrally located in Portobello.

Once you have had your fill of shakshouka or pancakes, venture to Brown Thomas for some luxury shopping. It may not be as expansive as Galeries Lafayette or Le Bon Marché, however the selection of products is fantastic; you might discover a new brand of product from Ireland or the UK. Once you have covered all ground in the department store, I would suggest slowly making your way along Grafton Street for some open-air shopping and to soak in the bustling energy. 

If you are eager to learn about Irish culture, you should certainly pay a visit to the National Gallery of Ireland, the National Museum of Ireland, the Irish Famine Exhibition, or even the Guinness Storehouse. You could take a stroll out to the Phoenix Park; you might even meet some local deer!

On Saturday evening, following an early bird meal at Sophie’s rooftop terrace, you might be interested in attending a show. Take a look at the websites of various theatres around Dublin, such as the Olympia Theatre or the 3 Arena, to discover what will be on during your visit. If nothing in particular interests you, attend a local Irish pub and you might be lucky enough to come across a traditional Irish music session. I would recommend you try a pint of Guinness as you soak in the atmosphere.

On Sunday, after a slow morning at your hotel, you might like to go for a long walk before your flight home. Take the DART to Howth for a scenic cliff walk – don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes! Once you have truly taken in the beautiful Irish coastline, you should start to gradually make your way back to the airport for your flight back home. Hopefully you have enjoyed your busy weekend in Dublin, whether you learned something about Irish culture or simply made the most of your time off. You might even be thinking about your next trip to Ireland already!

Dublin clearly has something to offer for everyone. Whether you choose to stay in the city centre to soak in the bustling atmosphere or retire to the countryside to reconnect with nature, it will be a fantastic weekend. After spending time in Ireland you will likely reconnect with your legal and language studies in a more authentic way, developing a true understanding for the language you are learning.
