What to pack for a trip to Dublin City
November 20, 2019
We all love the excitement of the lead up to a holiday but sometimes it can be easy to get so caught up in the build up that we forget to bring what we really need. Of course, your packing list will vary depending on the activities you have planned but none the less, there a few staple items that will be sure to benefit you on your trip to Dublin no matter what your plans entail.
We’ve compiled this handy list to get you started below:
Some comfy walking shoes
One of the most appealing aspects of Dublin city is its compact size. Most of the cities top attractions can be reached by foot and are in close proximity to one another. Staying at The Trinity City Hotel is particularly facilitative of this; with a location in the heart of Dublin, you’ll be able to reach top Dublin tourist sites such as Trinity College, St Stephens Green & Temple Bar in just a few steps.
It is essential to ensure you have the right pair of footwear so you can make the most of the city without having to worry about sore feet! Pack a pair of trainers or comfortable walking shoes and you should be good to go! If your feet do start to get a little tired during your stay, you can easily rent a Dublin Bike for an alternative way to enjoy the fresh air and take the pressure of your toes.
A Power Bank
Your phone will come in super handy when exploring Dublin. You can use it for great recommendations, a personal guide & for navigating directions. However heavy usage of apps can quickly run down your battery. Carrying a power bank with you while on the go will ensure your always fully charged and best equipped to continue your explorations.
A Suitable Power Adapter
There’s nothing worse than arriving to your destination and realising you cannot plug in any of your devices. Ensuring you have the correct power adapter packed in your suitcase will quickly avoid this issue. UK guests need not worry as the voltage in Ireland is the same but international guests should pick up a 230v/50Hz adapter with a 3-pin plug. These are widely available at minimal cost.
Lots of Layers
The weather in Dublin changes, fast. Packing plenty of layers will ensure you can easily add and remove clothing as necessary should the sun decide to shine. Pack some warmer layers for evening time when it can start to get that little chillier. If you’re travelling in the Winter time, hats, scarves & gloves will be a much appreciated extra in your case.
Ensure one of your layers is waterproof.
Packing a waterproof (and windproof) jacket will ensure you stay warm and dry should the weather take a slightly bad turn. Dublin can be partial to just a few showers so carrying this with you will ensure you don’t find yourself stuck. The time of year will determine how heavy you need your jacket to be for the summer months, a light fold up jacket that you can easily carry with you should be perfect.
Lots of Energy & Curiosity

Awaken your curiosity and discover the city’s extensive history or take a tour of all the top attractions.
