You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Guinness Storehouse and Phoenix Park. Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Kilmainham Gaol Museum, snap pictures at Ha'penny Bridge, admire the landmark architecture of Dublin Castle, and don't miss a visit to Temple Bar.

Plan my Dublin trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Culiacan, Mexico to Dublin is an approximately 23-hour flight. Traveling from Culiacan to Dublin, you'll lose 7 hours due to the time zone difference. In April, Dublin is cooler than Culiacan - with highs of 13°C and lows of 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Copenhagen.
