Aer Lingus operate a number of daily flights from Bristol to Dublin direct with a range of deals on offer.
Dublin is full of things to see and do. There is always something happening in the vibrant capital be it a festival, concert or other event. The city also acts as a gateway to the rest of Ireland with many day trips departing the city centre for destinations such as the Cliffs of Moher in Co. Clare and the Giants Causeway in Co. Antrim.
Soaring some 700 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, the Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland's most impressive sights. The cliffs run for 14 kilometres along the Wild Atlantic Way and are a natural masterpiece. You can learn about their formation in the onsite visitor centre and the Burren National Park and Galway City are located nearby should you wish to extend your visit.
The Giants Causeway lies in Northern Ireland and according to Irish legend the 37,000 basalt rock columns were formed when Irish giant Fionn Mac Cumhaill walked to Staffa Island in Scotland where the same rocks can be found. Science says that the rocks were formed by an ancient volcanic eruption. Either way, a visit to the Giants Causeway is a must.
Just moments from Dublin you'll find the Wicklow Mountains complete with gorgeous scenery, secret lakes, beaches and the ancient monastery of Glendalough. Glendalough is the perfect location to walk, hike, bathe by the lake and learn about Ireland's Ancient East - its round tower dates back to 6th century!
