A historic city
If you’re a history buff you’ll love Dublin as it has an excellent collection of historic buildings for you to discover. A great place to start is with Dublin Castle which, up until 1922, was the seat of British rule in Ireland. Today the castle is used by the Irish Government and is an interesting place to visit. There’s a museum which offers insight into the long history of tax collection in Ireland as well as a great café and gift shop.
After you’ve seen the castle you should head to the oldest building in Dublin, Christ Church Cathedral. Dating back to the 11th century, the cathedral is an exciting place to explore and has the largest crypt in the whole of Great Britain and Ireland.
Dublin has produced and inspired some fantastic writers and a brilliant way to discover their famous work is by visiting the Dublin Writers Museum. Located in an 18th-century house the museum has exhibits dedicated to writers like James Joyce, George Bernard Shaw and Patrick Pearse. The museum also has an excellent collection of portraits of famous Irish writers.
If you’re a particular fan of James Joyce’s work then you should head to the James Joyce Centre. Dedicated to the life and work of James Joyce, the museum has a fascinating collection which includes furniture from the apartment where Joyce wrote Finnegan’s Wake.
Located just 5km from the city centre, the National Botanic Gardens are a beautiful place to visit. The gardens are spread over 19 hectares and were founded in 1795. The collection of plants includes over 15,000 different species from all over the world and many of them are grown in wonderfully restored glasshouses. The gardens also have a special visitor centre which has information on notable botanists and the gardens themselves. If you want to grab a bite to eat the visitor centre is perfect as it also has a restaurant.
Guinness and Whiskies
The Guinness Storehouse is the home of Guinness. Inside across seven floors you can explore the heritage of the Guinness brand, and you can even learn how to pour the perfect pint of the black stuff. Learn about how whiskey is made with just three ingredients at the Old Jameson Distillery in Smithfield. Your guided tour will include whiskey tasting, complete with a coveted Whiskey Taster Certificate. Try the Temple Bar if you fancy tasting more whiskies or Guinness – it has also won Irish Music Pub of the Year for 2002 to 2012. It is also famous for a great beer garden, oysters and of course a great atmosphere.
