National Museum of Ireland 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #1 of 93
I didn’t really want to visit this gallery at first, but was convinced by my boyfriend who had heard it was great. We got there and didn’t have to pay any entrance fee. The staff was very nice and sociable and they always wanted to help us by ... [more ]
Trinity College 5.0 stars
Building - #2 of 93
As an English major, I was visiting Trinity College to see the Book of Kells and the Long Room. Both are in the Old Library at Trinity College. There are signs around that will help direct you. Trinity College of Dublin is the city's oldest ... [more ]
Dublin Castle 4.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #3 of 93
We visited the Dublin Castle on our first visit to Dublin. I liked it a lot, because I always enjoy visiting castles and this one is lovely. It has unique decorations and the rooms are very interestingly furnished . The tour guide was very ... [more ]
Guinness Store House 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #4 of 93
We visited the Guiness Storehouse, knowing that it’s considered the main visitor attraction in Ireland. Fortunately we had bought the Dublin Pass, because otherwise, it would have cost about 14 Euros to get in and personally, I find it too ... [more ]
St. Patricks Cathedral 4.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #5 of 93
I couldn't leave Dublin without seeing Saint Patrick's Cathedral. Dublin is unique in having two cathedrals in one city; St. Patrick's is the larger of the two. It only cost €4.20 for me as a student but it's €5.50 for adults. I definitely ... [more ]
Grafton Street 5.0 stars
Shopping - #6 of 93
Grafton Street is probably one of Dublin’s most high-end shopping centers, filled with designers and jewelers. Besides shopping, you will find plenty of trendy bars and cafes. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring this area, but honestly didn’t ... [more ]
Christ Church Cathedral 4.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #7 of 93
Christ Church Cathedral is not in the center of Dublin, but it is easy to get to on foot as long as you have a map and no luggage to carry. For adults it's €6 and for students/concession it's €4. It's open for visitors from 9.00am - ... [more ]
Guinnes Brewery 3.0 stars
Industry, Economy - #8 of 93
The actual tour of the Guinness Brewery is kind of corny and reminded me of one of the less-awesome Disney world rides that isn't really a ride but more of a "walk through." It was fine... I liked the part about the coopers... that was ... [more ]
Merrion Square 5.0 stars
Square - #9 of 93
I found Merrion Square to be quite a pleasant park. Merrion is located by the parliament and national gallery. Like St. Stephen’s Green Park, this is a great place to relax or have a picnic lunch. I don’t really feel it deserves a special ... [more ]
Ha'penny Bridge 4.0 stars
Bridge - #10 of 93
The official name of this bridge is Wellington Bridge but the locals all call it Ha'penny Bridge. It used to cost a ha'penny to cross and that's why the locals call it that. It's a great spot to take photos from in the evening. It is one of the ... [more ]
St. Stephen's Green 4.0 stars
Park - #11 of 93
I don't know how much Irish Literature everyone has read, but St Stephens Green plays a very prominent part in a lot of books set in Dublin (if they're written by true Irish people that is!) St Stephens Green is a beautiful park set right in ... [more ]
Kilmainham Gaol 5.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #12 of 93
When I saw the Kilmainham Gaol prison I experienced the feeling of non-reality. I always thought that such kind of morbid building only existed in movies. The gloomiest thing about this jail that now acts as a museum is its interior which homes a ... [more ]
O' Connell's Street 5.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #13 of 93
If you don’t know where is the O’Connell Street in Dublin you will still probably run into it by accident, since every bus is passing through this other center of Dublin. O’Connell Street is considered to be the widest street in Europe and I ... [more ]
Abbey Theatre 4.0 stars
Opera, Theatre, Concert Hall - #14 of 93
Next week will mark the 203rd birthday of Ireland's national theatre, The Abbey. Founded in 1904 (December 27th, to be exact), The Abbey had some of Ireland's greatest names behind it from its inception, including founding members Lady Gregory ... [more ]
St Mary's Pro-Cathedral 3.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #15 of 93
PRO means that it is an “acting cathedral” or non-official cathedral because the pope didn’t denominate it so. St Mary's doesn’t have an impressive architecture like the other two Churches of Ireland (Christ Church and St Patrick’s Church). Also, ... [more ]
Irish Museum of Modern Art 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #16 of 93
On a cloudy, rainy Dublin day, we headed to the Irish Museum of Modern Art. One big bonus is that it's free admission. The museum is closed on Mondays and open from around 10:00am to 5:30pm the rest of the week (Sundays it's open at noon). ... [more ]
The Iveagh Gardens 4.0 stars
Park - #17 of 93
Apparently these were once private grounds that have opened to the public. I was told that a lot of Dubs aren’t even aware of this, tucked behind the National Concert Hall near St. Stephen’s Square. It was quite deserted when I stopped by. ... [more ]
Whitefriar Street Carmelite 4.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #18 of 93
Many of the tourists skip the Whitefriar Street Carmelite Church because it situates on an uninviting area of Dublin’s Southside. The area is not dangerous but poor and perhaps this is one of the reasons that the Carmelites chose to settle here, ... [more ]
Blessington Street Basin 4.0 stars
Park - #19 of 93
You can reach Blessington Street Basin within a few minutes walk away from O'Connell Street, where you’ll be surprised to come upon an unexpectedly quiet place, away from the crowded streets nearby. The most unusual thing about the park is that ... [more ]
National Botanical Gardens 4.0 stars
Botanical Garden - #20 of 93
I have visited these gardens in all seasons and still I discovered, on my most recent voyage, that I am seeing again with new eyes. The entrance to the gardens can be reached by public bus from Dublin's main street, O'Connell Street. Even as you ... [more ]
