The most famous tourist attraction in Ireland Guinness storehouse is just around the cornerTourist attractions Dublin
Hey there, here is some suggestions of what to do while at my apartment:
1. Guinness Store House
This is expensive (adult tickets are €13.50, or almost $19), but no trip to Dublin is complete without a visit and every tourist seems to come back at least once. The Guinness Storehouse is an impressive building: the core of the building is shaped like a giant pint glass, and consists of seven floors. Along each floor, you get to see how Guinness is made. The top floor, which holds the Gravity Bar, is the most fun. You get a complimentary pint of Guinness and the most spectacular view of Dublin, which is worth the admission price alone. Literally 1 minute walk from my apartment.
2. Kilmainham Gaol
This museum is a must for history buffs. Kilmainham Gaol tells part of the story of Irish history. The leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising were executed here while several Irish nationalist leaders were imprisoned here over the years. Although this is located about a 15-minute bus ride from the city center, you can make a day of it by visiting the nearby Irish Museum of Modern Art.
3. Trinity College
Of course, this is best known for the Book of Kells, but it's worth a visit just to see the "Long Room," where the book is held. This room was actually the inspiration for a room called the Jedi Archives in “Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.” The college, which was founded by England's Queen Elizabeth in 1592, is literally stuffed with history and a tour is a great way to spend an afternoon. The campus makes for great people-watching in the summer when students gather outside the Pavilion Bar (known as "The Pav") to take in a game of cricket
4. Phoenix Park
This park is the largest urban enclosed park in Europe, and is more than twice the size of New York’s Central Park. As with all outdoor pursuits in Ireland, the rain can often stop play. But on a good day, this park is a real treat. The park is also home to the residence for the President of Ireland, Áras an Uachtaráin, as well as Dublin’s zoo.
5. National Gallery of Ireland
Although Dublin now ranks as one of the most expensive cities in Europe, entrance to this museum (for the permanent exhibition) is free. The collection includes some 2,500 paintings and about 10,000 other works in various forms. Major Irish work includes that of Jack B. Yeats (the brother of William Butler) and of Louis le Brocquy, Ireland’s greatest living artist
6. Leinster House
This is the home of the Irish parliament and it's a truly magnificent building, full of history. Admission is free, but tours have to be arranged in advance. Visitors from outside Ireland should contact their embassies or honorary consular representative, who will then contact the events desk at Leinster House.
7. Croke Park
This is the headquarters of the main sporting body in Ireland, the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), who are in charge of hurling and Gaelic football. As well as being the spiritual home of Irish cultural nationalism , it is also the fourth-largest sports stadium in Europe. Tickets for games toward the end of season (around August) can be hard to come by, but there are usually plenty of tickets for the games at the start of the season, around May. It is also well worth coming here to visit the GAA museum and for a tour of the stadium.
8. St. Patrick’s Cathedral
Ireland’s largest church, and, given its close proximity to the city center, a visit here is an essential part of any itinerary, no matter how short the stay. Unsurprisingly for a church that was founded in the 12th century, there is plenty of history here – Jonathan Swift, the author of “Gulliver’s Travels”, who was the dean of the Cathedral from 1713-45, is buried here. St. Patrick’s Cathedral also hosts choral concerts regularly, which are worth keeping an eye open for. If you do get tickets for a concert here, it is strongly advisable to bring a cushion, as sitting on the hard wooden benches for over two hours can be a fairly numbing experience.
9. Dublin Castle
Dublin Castle was formerly the center of British rule in Ireland. The best thing to visit here today is undoubtedly the Chester Beatty Library, which has some of the finest collections of Eastern art in the world. Alfred Chester Beatty, an American mining magnate, was a major collector of Eastern art. He moved his collection to Ireland in 1950. Admission is free – so a visit here is an absolute must. Dublin Castle also contains a police museum.
10. Christ Church Cathedral
This is just a short walk from St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which Christ Church predates. This is one of Dublin’s oldest buildings, and includes in its exhibition various rare manuscripts, historic artifacts and gold and silverware. The cathedral is also notable for hosting the first performance of Handel’s Messiah and it continues to put on various choral performances. There is an admission charge of €6 which is about $8.47.
Hey there, here are some suggestions of places to eat:
Places to eat:
Dublin’s city centre is constantly awash with new dining options and eateries pop across the city every week. If we focus on Dublin’s city centre though - in the case of this list spanning from Trinity College and taking in the Dame district, Temple Bar and the Quays on both sides of The Liffey - there are some great restaurants that range from high-end Michelin star, to mid-range and inventive, to budget eating with a difference. Whether you’re looking for an 8-course tasting menu or an entire chicken fried in buttermilk there’ll be a dining style that will match your travel plans.
Get a gorgeous view of the Liffey at The Winding Stair, a bookshop and restaurant that showcases great Irish ingredients. .
Arthur's is the nearest pub on the route to The Guinness Storehouse, and is literally 8 minutes walk from the apartment. It is popular both with locals and tourists. Naturally it has the freshest pint of Guinness in all of Ireland.
Arthurs is a classic Dublin pub, old style but well appointed. It has been a pub for over 200 years, and has many historical connections, being beside St. Catherines Church, outside of which the patriot, Robert Emmet, was hung, drawn and quartered in 1803.
They light a real turf fire everyday, play an eclectic mix of Irish music and have live music sessions in the evenings. They offer wholesome food at reasonable prices, seven days a week.
They do not have a television as it would interfere with the relaxed ambiance, conversation and banter.
Situated in Glencullen on top of the Dublin mountains, Johnnie Fox's is one of Ireland's oldest and most famous traditional Irish pubs - and they are also famed as the highest pub in the country. They are located approximately 25-35 minutes drive from Dublin City centre.
At Johnnie Fox's they have Traditional Irish Music every night, plus on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. There are large bands that play through the year on selected dates. You can also see one of the top dancing performances in the country at our famous 'Hooley Night' - dinner & show (reservations recommended). All in all, Fox's is the home of traditional entertainment, so be sure to book in advance if you can
