To Avoid Crowds in Dublin you can best keep an eye on domestic school vacations as well as what is happening in the rest of Europe. The city is easily accessible for tourists from Europe’s mainland with budget airlines servicing the city’s airport. Like Amsterdam, Dublin is also home to many European headquarters of international tech firms like Google or Facebook. The city has lots to offer to tourists. Not only can Temple Bar entertain numerous stag parties, the capital of Ireland is home to Trinity College, the world famous Guinness brewery, Dublin Castle and numerous museums. It is also good to keep an eye on local events and holidays. Saint Patrick’s Day, on March 17, is arguably the busiest day of the year in Dublin. The official tourist office has a useful website. Although visited by cruise ships, the effect on the city is limited.
