The Tourist Attractions of Dublin:

One thing Dublin is quite famous for is its pubs! There are countless pubs and bars here so it’s a great city to visit if you want to enjoy a few drinks. Some streets are filled with pub after pub so you’ll never be short of somewhere to try, but if drinking isn’t your thing don’t let this put you off. Dublin has many other great attractions for tourists as well!

Historical Dublin

As you wander around the city streets you’ll find many examples of Dublin’s history. Though many of the streets contain pubs there are also some great shopping streets to enjoy too, and you’ll find pubs and shops situated within historic buildings, so history is all around you really. If you want a specific historical attraction in Dublin there are several places to head for – Christ Church Cathedral is the oldest standing building in Dublin, dating back to the 11th century in parts. The crypts set below it even out date the cathedral itself, however above ground there was a major restoration of the building in the 19th century! Dublin Castle is another popular attraction, and this was once the seat of British rule in Ireland, and then there’s Kilmainham Gaol, set a little way outside Dublin city centre. This old prison is open for guided tours.

National Museum of Ireland

Being the capital of Ireland Dublin is home to the National Museum where you can learn about the country’s history and archaeology. Nearby you’ll also find the National Library, and the National Gallery, the latter of which displays Irish and European art. All three of these attractions have free entry. The fine arts in the National Gallery will appeal to some visitors while the more modern arts of the Irish Museum of Modern Art will likely appeal to others!

Family Attractions in Dublin

Though some of the attractions above will still appeal to children there are several other attractions that may be better suited if you’re visiting Dublin with family. Dublinia and the Viking World is popular as it shows what life was like in Dublin in Medieval times and displays the world of the Vikings. In Phoenix Park another attraction is Dublin Zoo, the largest zoo in Ireland.
