Dublin

With a good selection of cultural and scenic highlights, tourists will be able to find plenty to see and do in Dublin.

It is an area of Dublin that approximately 1,000,000 people live in.

This place is in a category all on its own. No trip here would be complete if you miss Dublin Castle and Christ Church Cathedral. You'll also be able to visit Ha' Penny Bridge and the Dublinia while you are here.

Give the kids a break from sightseeing and enjoy some quality time together at National Aquatic Centre and Clondalkin Leisure Centre. For more fun with the family, continue on to the National Wax Museum Plus and Saggart Pitch and Putt Course.

The Dublin Zoo is a terrific place to bring your group for an exciting afternoon among big and small animals. If your time is limited, be sure to collect a map so you can quickly find the park's key exhibits.

You will meet beer aficionados from all over the world at the Guinness Storehouse, a renowned institution. Take a walk around the facilities to discover what they're putting in the water to make their beer so easy to drink.

Whether you want to practice your poker face or just get a taste of the electric atmosphere, the Casino at Marino and the Fitzwilliam Casino & Card Club are not to be missed. If you still have an itch that needs scratching, continue on to the Dr. Quirkey's Good Time Emporium or the Sporting Emporium Casino, Dublin.

Seleted from environmental habitats across the globe, the flora species at the National Botanic Gardens are quite impressive. The Talbot Botanic Gardens and the Castle Gardens are also worth checking out.

Pack a picnic basket and take some time out in the quiet, green surroundings of the Garden of Remembrance and St. Stephen's Green. Phoenix Park and Peoples Park are two more nice places to while away a lazy day and catch up on some reading.

A visit to Waterways Visitor Centre is an enjoyable way to get some more interesting information about the area.

This region is blessed with plenty of scenic coastline. A few of the best are Sandymount Beach, Donabate Beach, and Dollymount Beach.

Need some time away from the noise of the city? Head out on an adventure to Dalkey Island and St Annes Park. Dublin Mountains and Irishtown Nature Reserve are also popular among nature-loving visitors.

The area's exhibition spaces are jam-packed with tales of human endeavor and achievement. The Dublin Writers Museum and the James Joyce Cultural Centre offer a range of displays and collections that are bound to spark your curiosity. The National Leprechaun Museum and the National Print Museum are also worthwhile.

Embark on a voyage to the National Maritime Museum of Ireland and the National Maritime Institute Museum, an intriguing day out for the whole crew.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to enjoy the scientific objects and innovations at the Science Gallery.

The natural world contains more riches than just one person could hope to see in a lifetime. Luckily, institutions such as the National Museum of Natural History and the National Museum of Ireland - Archaeology do the hard work for us by presenting them all in a single location. The remarkable collections of the National Museum of Ireland - Natural History are also well worth checking out.

An oasis for art connoisseurs, this area houses various gallery spaces in which amateurs and professionals exhibit their work. Start your explorations of this creative enclave with a visit to the National Gallery of Ireland at Merrion Square and the Irish Museum of Modern Art. If you want to see more, wind up the afternoon at the Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery of Modern Art and the Chester Beatty Library and Gallery of Oriental Art.

Go back through time and uncover mysteries of yesteryear at the Dalkey Heritage Centre and the Pearse Museum. The Little Museum of Dublin and the Dvblinia & the Viking World are also prominent choices.

Step back through the ages with a trip to the War Memorial Gardens and the Trinity College, just two of the interesting historic sites here. You might also like to get the camera out for some photos at Four Courts and Kilmainham Gaol Historical Museum.

O'Connell Bridge is an impressive structure that has provided an important crossing for local residents over the years.

Castles that look like they were plucked from the history channel, Malahide Castle and Clontarf Castle are a must-see for tourists of all ages. For even more picturesque views and historical lessons, head out and explore Ardgillan Castle and Drimnagh Castle.

Discover the region's spiritual side and take some time to reflect at St. Patrick's Cathedral and St. Michan's Church. If you'd be interested to check out some more religious sites, check for guided tours at St. Audeon's Church and John's Lane Augustinian Church.

Dublin's most acclaimed sights often overshadow its less renowned, yet equally fascinating activities. Millennium Bridge and the Leopardstown Racecourse are some good options. Also, think about checking out Royal Irish Yacht Club and Clara Lara Fun Park if you've got the time.
