Attractions near the Aberdeen Lodge
The historic craft of printing
The craft of letterpress printing has been preserved for you to discover at the National Print Museum, located less than three kilometres from the hotel. This working museum offers an insight into a skill made redundant by technological advances, yet thanks to a panel of active retired printers and typesetters, you can still see all sorts of unique and historic printing equipment in action.
There are more than 10,000 objects and artefacts housed inside, from printing machines and blocks, to moveable type setters made from wood and metal. With so much to see, it’s recommended you take a tour – choose between self-guided and guided options.
Following Dublin’s native tree trail
Feel free to leave the busyness of central Dublin behind by spending the day discovering Ireland’s other locals: the native trees. Located just five minutes’ drive from the hotel, Herbert Park features a unique and engaging Native Tree Trail. Taking a walk through the parkland grants you the opportunity to spot 15 different types of trees including the Mountain Ash and Scots Pine.
You can download a trail map on your smartphone or tablet, or check out the information boards posted beside each tree for a great old-fashioned adventure. Other park highlights include a bandstand and pond created in 1907 for the Irish International Exhibition.
