Cuba's capital and major commercial center, Havana manages to be very old and very modern at the same time.
Havana is known for historic sites, nightlife, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: appreciate the extensive heritage of Malecón of Havana, make a trip to Old Havana, contemplate the long history of Revolution Plaza, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

Dublin, Ireland to Havana is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Dublin to Havana.
