About Dublin

Dublin needs to examine first glance like a fairly modern city. Founded by the Vikings over 1,000 years ago (you can see the archaeological evidence, at the Dublinia Museum), the Irish capital feels like a mythic place. While you won't see the historic buildings of many other European cities, the charm of the Irish capital lies in it culture and people. Duck into one of Dublin's 600+ pubs to hear an Irish music jam session. A literary city like no other, experience Dublin literature on a literary pub crawl or visit museums dedicated to the written word. Wish to medieval illustrated manuscripts? Look at the Book of Kells at Trinity College. Want something a little more recent? The Bram Stoker Museum showcases the life of the Dracula author. Of course, Ireland wouldn’t be the same ones without its beer or whiskey, so a sojourn to the Guinness Storehouse or the Old Jamestown Distillery is a highlight. Keep up the partying in the restaurants and bars of Dublin's vibrant Temple Bar district, where you can sleep in a hotel owned by members of U2.

Popular Attractions in Dublin

Trinity College
4.5/5
284 Reviews
School
Ireland's most ancient college was founded in 1592, and to this day, it remains its most prestigious and highest-ranked academically. Trinity College - also called the University of Dublin - was constructed outside the city walls, but today is located right in Dublin´s urban heart. Counted among its alumni are Jonathan Swift, Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde, and Samuel Beckett. The campus's library is one of Europe's greatest, a repository for a wealth of research material and historical documents, as well as about 5 million books.
Guinness Storehouse
4.5/5
265 Reviews
Exhibition Hall
When you arrive in Ireland, if you want to try fresh Guinness beer, be sure to visit the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin. See for yourself the brewing process. The Guinness Storehouse was completed in 1904 and appears the architectural style of Chicago. The entire building was made of steel. Exquisite lighting design makes the entire exhibition hall shine. The beer exhibition hall has a total of eight floors and systematically introduces the beer brewing process.
Dublin Castle
4.3/5

Castle
A fortified castle has stood on this site since at least 930, and it's easy to see why: it stands on the highest ridge in the vicinity, at the junction of the River Liffey and the now-underground River Poddle, so it was a strategic place to defend. And indeed, occupants of the site had to defend it frequently: The Danish Vikings that occupied a fortress here in the 900s were defeated by the Irish the next century. By the 1100s the Irish were defeated by the Normans. The next century the English set up shop here. And so on. Thanks to all these ransackings and a few disastrous fires, little remains from those early times. Most of the current castle dates to the 1700s. Today, the 44,000 square meter castle complex contains two museums, two cafes, two gardens, government buildings, a conference center and state apartments.
Halfpenny Bridge
4.3/5
81 Reviews
Bridge
In 1816, in order to connect Dublin's north and south urban areas, the Irish specially built a beautifully designed light bridge on the Li River, which was only for pedestrians. After the completion of the bridge, the pedestrian crossing notice must pay half a penny, so there is a title of "half pence bridge". When night falls, the half-penny bridge will light up the yellow light, as if a golden curved bow lies on the quiet Li River, which is unique.
