Guinness is the heart and soul of Dublin. No matter how hard you try to stay off the beaten track, all roads lead to Guinness Storehouse. Located in a colourful neighbourhood called The Liberties, the Guinness experience takes you through the history, production, and advertising of this world-famous stout on a self-guided tour. The highlight for many is enjoying a pint in the Gravity Bar, the highest 360 vantage point in the city with views across the entire county. It’s a must-do when visiting the capital.
Marking almost halfway between north and south Dublin, Trinity College is not only one of the country’s most prestigious universities but a landmark in the city centre. Walk through the historic gates and grounds and enjoy stunning architecture and an atmosphere bustling with students and visitors. Inside you can view the Book of Kells, one of the most significant and ornate books in the history of the state. You can also visit the long room library which looks like it’s straight out of a fairy tale.
EPIC – Irish Immigration Museum
If you have any interest in your Irish heritage, or the idea of Irish immigration in general, you need to take a visit to EPIC, Irelands Immigration Museum. Having won multiple awards, EPIC is now firmly on the list of Dublin’s top tourist attractions despite only being open since 2016. Follow in the shoes of the millions of people who have left the Emerald Isles and witness the impact they had on their new surroundings. You can also follow your own family tree in the heritage centre. Their interactive exhibits and the fascinating information contained within make it a perfect day out for adults and children.
Did you know Dublin contains Europe’s largest walled park? Located a short distance from the centre of the city lies Phoenix Park, a place to meet, visit and enjoy for free. The park has one of Dublin’s best family attractions, Dublin Zoo, alongside a visitor centre, playgrounds, rolling fields, herds of wild deer, Ireland’s state guesthouse, and the home of our President. Spend a sunny afternoon exploring the park and enjoying lunch al fresco in Dublin’s largest green space.
Close to Phoenix Park is another of our top attractions. Kilmainham Gaol was once a state prison turned museum. It’s different from any other prison in Ireland as it once contained some of our most infamous and notorious prisoners. Walk around the complex discovering what life was like for prisoners and walking in the footsteps of now-famous revolutionaries, even viewing the place where they were executed. It’s a must-do for lovers of state history or those with a morbid fascination with crime and punishment.
Little Museum of Dublin
Rated number one on Trip Advisor, this list wouldn’t be complete without a mention of The Little Museum of Dublin. Located in an 18th-century Georgian townhouse owned by Dublin City Council, it’s a local history museum that takes you through some of the social history of Dublin and allows you to see for yourself how people lived back then. You can see artifacts and hear the stories of the last 100 years in Ireland from the Easter Rising to the rise of U2. Best of all, it’s less than a 10-minute walk from our serviced apartments in Dublin.
