What to Wear in Dublin in November?

In addition, jeans or other heavy trousers, along with a warm jacket or coat and some comfortable walking shoes or boots.

Things to Do in Dublin in November

There won't be many sunny days in Dublin this month, but if you're okay with walking in the rain, you might want to consider going on a pay-what-you-wish walking tour.

As usual, you can also expect plenty of theatrical performances, concerts, and sporting events to attend this month.

Given that the holidays are just around the corner, you can expect some of the Dublin Christmas markets to open up later in November, and there will probably be special lighting displays popping up all over the city.
