Discover the Wonders of Dubai

From humble origins as a simple fishing village, Dubai has exploded into a shimmering oasis of global culture, cuisine and travel. Here, the past and the future unite – what a journey the city has made under the hand of its royal family who have overseen its huge growth in recent decades.

More and more Irish holiday makers are discovering the unique wonders of Dubai. The city is one clash of manmade wonders and natural beauty. Its high-rises are genuinely spectacular, as well as its manmade islands created in the shape of palm trees. The tallest building in the world is here, the unforgettable Burj Khalifa. But the city also enjoys the gifts of nature, nestled as it is between the sea and the desert sands. There are some truly beautiful beaches here, the star in the crown being Jumeirah Beach, a stunning stretch of soft white sands that’s a must-see during your Dubai holidays.

The weather never disappoints but be aware that it can get very hot between June and August with temperatures reaching a peak of up to 45°C. The coolest months are December and January with lows of 25°C. There’s little or no rain at all during the summer months and with small downpours in between December and March.

When to go

Dubai is a sun chasers paradise as it's hot all year round. Tourist season peaks from December through to February so be aware that lines will be longer and parks and attractions will be busier too. Temperatures are a little cooler that time of year, and more manageable for international crowds. We'd recommend going before the summer months when it can become too hot, particular for Irish tourists unused to it.
