Apr 19 2018
If you travel to Dublin City, make sure the following 5 attractions are on your “to do” list. A trip to Dublin is not complete until all have been ticked off!
Pour your own perfect pint of Guinness
The Guinness Storehouse must not be missed if you are visiting the capital city. After a visit to here, you will have learned everything about Guinness from the brewing process to how it’s drank. You will get a tour of the buildings seven stories. What’s best is, you will get to pour your own perfect pint! Interesting fact, pouring the perfect pint of Guinness should take 199.9 seconds and should be poured at a 45 degree angle. It’s not surprising that the storehouse was voted the most popular tourist attraction in Europe for 2015.
Take a trip to the Little Museum of Dublin
The Little Museum of Dublin is one not to be missed. It is full of donations from the people of Dublin throughout the years. It has been given the nickname the ‘people’s museum’ of Dublin and portrays the city’s cultural and social history in the 20th Century. It’s a fantastic way to discover the city through the eyes of its locals.
Take a walk over the River Liffey
The River Liffey is Dublin’s main artery, running through the city for 75 miles into the Irish Sea at Dublin Bay. The two banks make for picturesque walks through the town centre, shouldered by stunning Georgian architecture. For great views down the river, head to the famous Ha’penny Bridge, built in the early 19th century. Don’t forget to take a look at night too, when the bridge is lit up. People used to fix love locks to the bridge as symbols of their commitment. But if you’re feeling romantic, be warned – from 2013 the council has discouraged this tradition!
Visit Temple Bar
Temple Bar is the place to go for a taste of typical Irish ‘culture’ – you’ll find traditional bars, folk music playing in the streets and pubs, bold graffiti and walking tours. You can’t help but be seduced by the vibrancy of this popular area on the south bank – it’s a definite must on your places to go. Don’t forget your camera to capture the brightly coloured buildings, and stop off along the way for a traditional Irish tipple and hearty pub meal.
Travel out to Malahide
Malahide Castle is one of the most important historic buildings in Dublin and well worth a visit to learn about the city’s rich past. Malahide Castle dates back to the 12th century and was inhabited by one of the most influential families in the country, the Talbots. Having survived the Battle of Boyne and seen through the Penal Laws, the castle is a significant building in terms of Irish history – not to mention a stunning museum of period furniture from the Neo-Classical and Rococo eras, as well as paintings and portraits from the National Gallery of Ireland.
