Family fun: 14 Dublin attractions that are opening their doors again next week
Planning a day out in Dublin soon?
From Monday, May 10th, we can travel around the country freely (finally!), and if you were thinking of making the trip into the Big Smoke, you will have plenty of places to see and explore – even though shops won't be open again for another week.
One of our very favourite Dublin attractions, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, is celebrating its 5th Birthday this week, and will be open to the public once more from Monday onwards.
The museum, which was the winner of Europe's Leading Tourist Attraction both in 2019 and 2020, is located in the CHQ building in Dublin's Docklands, and is easily reached by car, luas or on foot.
As well as EPIC The Irish Immigration Museum, here are 13 other visitor attractions that will be back open to the public again from next week:
