Best Dublin photography locations

Dublin Temple Bar

Dublin is a city we were so excited to see and we wish we had had more time in the city to explore it further, but on our trip there we only had about two days in the city.

While we still have more to see (and photograph!), we did stop at a few popular Instagrammable locations while in Dublin so we could snag some cool photos of our adventures in the city.

These are our favorite spots we photographed during our time in Dublin.

5 favorite Instagrammable locations in Dublin

1. Temple Bar

Temple Bar has to be one of the most photographed spots in the city! Everyone had their phones out snapping photos of the brightly lit bars in this nightlife district.

We wandered around the district, snapped our photos of the iconic Temple Bar in Temple Bar before finding a different bar for some pints of Guinness as we listened to live music.

Temple Bar was such a fun part of the city and one area we definitely want to continue our exploration of when we return to Dublin again in the future.

2. Ha’penny Bridge

Ha’penny Bridge AKA Liffy Bridge is such an Instagrammable bridge in Dublin! This bridge spans the River Liffy and dates back to 1816.

I was excited for the opportunity to photograph the bridge at night with the reflections in the river as we made our way to Temple Bar.

3. St. Patrick’s Cathedral 

It wouldn’t feel right visiting Dublin without paying a visit to St. Patrick’s Cathedral. It’s be like visiting Barcelona without seeing Sagrada Familia!

The cathedral is gorgeous, has beautiful stained glass, stunning architecture, and I actually really liked the tiles on the floor.

Funnily enough, did you know St. Patrick wasn’t actually Irish? He was a Briton! He was kidnapped as a teenager and sold as a slave in Ireland and then he found his faith.

4. Guinness Storehouse

We could not, simply could not, visit Dublin without enjoying some Guinness and exploring the Storehouse.

Not only was the Storehouse cool as we learned so much about the beer, its production and history, but it was so cool visiting Gravity Bar and sampling the beer and seeing the city from this vantage point.

I love aerial views of cities as you see it sprawl out around you and you definitely get that view here, plus a perfectly-poured stout! A win-win in my book.

5. Phoenix Park

Phoenix Park is a big urban and public park in Dublin. We didn’t have too much time in the park but it was a lovely green space to explore. Unfortunately we weren’t able to spot any of the free roaming deer in the park but maybe when we return we’ll spot some and have a bit more time to walk around the park.
