On the Map: Dublin, Ireland’s Capital City is located on the east coast of the country, and is well served by infrastructure linking it to all parts of the Emerald Isle.
Dublin is a lively cosmopolitan city brimming with culture. You could spend your time strolling the streets soaking up the atmosphere, relaxing in its cafes and bars or you could check out its myriad historical, literary and cultural delights. The 8th century illuminated manuscript, the Book of Kells, must be viewed. It is on display at the impressive Trinity College, Ireland’s first university (founded 1592) in the heart of Dublin. For the rest of your time, it is up to you how much you want to pack in. Phoenix Park, twice the size of New York City’s Central Park, Georgian Dublin around Stephen’s Green, the National Botanical Gardens, National Museum, Kilmainham Jail and the Hugh Lane Municipal Art Gallery are all highly recommended stops on your tour. Then there’s the Guinness Storehouse and Jameson Distillery. A visit to Dublin’s Temple Bar to experience the lively Dublin pub culture is a must, though many of Dublin’s best bars can be found outside this area in the streets and laneways around Grafton Street, the shopper’s street of choice. Purchasing a ‘hop-on, hop-off’ Dublin Bus Tour ticket is a great way to get around and see all the major sites at a very reasonable cost.
