Dublin (Dun Laoghaire), Ireland

Enjoy a day in emerald Ireland’s buzzing capital city of Dublin, where there’s always a song to sing, a joke to tell, and a pint to sink. Your Carnival cruise will take you to Dún Laoghaire, a buzzing town nearby with beautiful seaside views. From there it’s a short ride to laid-back yet lively Dublin, crammed with a history of revolutionaries and literary heroes that dates back at least a millennium and a half. Since the city sustained Gaelic, Viking, Norman, and English invasions during all this time, you can see the influences of all these cultures. Immerse yourself in this storied past as you stroll through Georgian terraces on Merrion Square, near Ireland’s National Gallery, where Picasso paintings compete with Jack Yeats’ Irish landscapes. Browse for local cheeses and organic wines at the Temple Bar market or enjoy some lounging on the lush St. Stephen’s Green.
