About Dublin City
The city is very easy to explore on foot and there is much to see. Probably the most famous landmarks are the General Post Office, headquarters for the 1916 uprising and the iconic Ha’penny Bridge, across the River Liffey. Many visitors head for Trinity College to see the famous Book of Kells, a manuscript written by Celtic monks in 800 AD. Look out for the many statues around the city, including the modern Spire of Dublin and the statues of Molly Malone and Oscar Wilde. Take a stroll around St Stephen’s Green, a Georgian park in the centre of the city. Also worth a visit are the grand 18th century Dublin Castle and Christ Church Cathedral with its old crypt and the oldest building in Dublin. To discover more about the city’s literary history and the works of some of its famous residents, visit the Dublin Writers Museum.

Of course no visit to Dublin is complete without a visit to the Guinness Storehouse, to taste the ‘black stuff’ and find out how it is made. For something a little different, you can take a guided tour of Kilmainham Gaol or visit the Jeanie Johnston, a ship and museum documenting life during the famine years. After dark, the cobbled streets and colourful pubs of Temple Bar are the place to be, for the ‘craic’. Out and about, you can visit the nearby village of Howth, from the harbour you can see the island of Ireland’s Eye. You can also take a cliff walk and see some of the oldest occupied buildings in Ireland.
