Dublin, Ireland - Highlights

story by: Inspire UK & Ireland

There is so much to see and do in Dublin and the surrounding region that you could become overwhelmed with choice.  To help narrow down your options if you only have a limited time available, at House of Travel we have put together some of our favourite attractions or visitor spots so you don't miss out on anything!

The Famine Memorial - these statues of tall, emaciated people shuffling along the dock heading for ship are a sombre commeration of the great famine of the mid 19th century whten Ireland lost more than a million people to famine and emigration.

Kilmainham Gaol - closed in 1924, this is a bleak but fascinating attraction. The only way to visit to Gaol is with a guided tour which is great as you learn all about Ireland’s turbulent past and independence as the jail housed the leaders of the Easter 1916 rebellion.

Sample some local Brews - Dioscover how the world famous brews are made at the Guinness Storehouse or Old Jamieson Distillery.

Francis Bacon’ Studio - after his death in 1992, his London Studio was moved in all its messy glory to the High Lane Gallery. You look through a Perspex window at the 7000 items they shifted, a huge easel, piles of paints, jars, and of course a bottle of Krug Champagne.

Statue Hunt - there are plenty to find and some have acquired some interesting nicknames. Keep your eyes peeled for James Joyce, Oscar Wilde and Molly Malone.

Enjoy a pink inthe Temple Bar - Although it can be a bit touristy its still a great place for an evening out and to find a live music ‘session’.

Trinity College - the oldes university in Ireland, founded in 1592, has prime real estate in central Dublin and its home to one of the world’s most famous books, The Book of Kells.

Train to Dun Laoghaire - This quaint seaside town just 11 kilometres south of Dublin has a rich and complex heritage and is referred to as Dublins Rivera due to its splendid harbour and town surrounded by rolling hills.
