A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Guinness Storehouse and Kilmainham Gaol Museum. For shopping fun, head to Grafton Street or James Joyce Cultural Centre. Spend the 29th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: take a stroll through Temple Bar, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Ireland - Archaeology, examine the collection at GPO & GPO Witness History Visitor Centre, and walk around St Stephens Green.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Dublin is an approximately 9- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Tel Aviv to Dublin due to the time zone difference.
