If you’re thinking of visiting Ireland’s capital city, Dublin, you’ve made an excellent choice. Compact, charming, easy going and without any airs or graces, Dublin is a great city to spend a few days in, no matter where your interests lie. Whether you want to indulge in some retail therapy, soak up some art and culture, delve into the city’s rich and turbulent history, or just wile away the afternoon in one of the many public parks or public houses, Dublin has something for everyone. You could easily spend a week or more in the city, but with so many other things to see and do in Ireland, we’ve whittled the top attractions in the capital to some manageable sightseeing excursions.
This is one of Ireland’s top visitor attractions, and the hype is definitely justified. The Guinness Brewery occupies a sprawling section south of the river Liffey in Dublin’s city centre, and the Storehouse shines a light on the equally sprawling history of the world’s most famous alcoholic drink. Take the tour and afterwards enjoy a free pint of the black stuff on the rooftop bar that offers a stunning 360 degree panorama of the city below.
Trinity College is located right in the heart of Dublin city, and its grounds provide a calm oasis from the hustle and bustle outside its walls. A walk through the grounds taking in the beautiful, stately buildings and cobbled streets is a must, but there are also a few sights that constantly make it onto ‘must see’ lists, including the Book of Kells (one of the oldest books in the world, a copy of the bible handmade and intricately decorated by monks) and the Long Room, a breathtaking room that puts anything in Hogwarts to shame!
Phoenix Park is not just the biggest green space in Dublin, it’s the biggest green space in any city in the world – yes, even bigger than Central Park in New York City! This huge park has got woodlands full of deer, the residence of the President of Ireland, and one particularly popular attraction – Dublin Zoo! The Zoo has had remarkable breeding success in the last few years, welcoming three new baby elephants in summer 2014 alone. Regardless of whether you visit the zoo or not, Phoenix Park is still a great place to take the kids or have a picnic on a sunny day,
National Gallery and National Museum
Culture vultures will love the National Gallery and National Museum, both situated around the corner from one another with the opulent Parliament buildings in between. See masterpieces from the greatest Irish artists such as Jack Yeats, Louis Le Brocquy and Paul Henry among many other classics, and discover what life was like in prehistoric Ireland as well as various other fascinating ancient and modern historical collections.
Grafton Street and Around
Grafton street is the city’s premier retail street and a must for any shopaholics. At one end stands the famous Molly Malone statue, and at the other end is the magnificent St. Stephen’s Green, where office workers flock to for lunch on sunny days. Halfway down the street is the iconic Bewley’s cafe, a great place to take a break from all that retail therapy.
