There’s a reason Lonely Planet voted Dublin as one of the top 5 cities in the world! There’s SO much to do and see in the city. Here are just 5 things you won’t want to miss on your Dublin trip:

1 The Guinness Storehouse
The story of Guinness goes way back to 1759 and two centuries on, the Black Stuff is famous all over the world. The Storehouse is Ireland’s number one visitor attraction. After a tour, sip on a pint in the Gravity Bar and take in the 360-degree view of Dublin. It’s open all year round, with ticket prices ranging from €6.50 – €18.00.

2 St Patrick's and Christ Church cathedrals
St Patrick's Cathedral dates back to 1220 and is filled with monuments, 19th-century stained glass and a beautiful Lady Chapel, while just a 10-minute walk away, Christ Church has attracted pilgrims for almost 1,000 years. One of its biggest attractions is the medieval crypt. Get tickets here.

3 The Book of Kells in Trinity College
Perfectly preserved in the Long Room Library at Trinity College (one of Europe’s most magnificent libraries) the Book of Kells is a tribute to Ireland’s rich scholarly history and one of the most beautifully illustrated manuscripts of the Early Christian world. Buy your tickets online to skip the queue!

4 Glasnevin Cemetery
Open since 1832, Glasnevin holds a record of 1.5 millions burials – a must for historians and anyone doing Ireland family history research. This is where you’ll find the grave of Irish Revolutionary Michael Collins and rebel leader (and muse of poet WB Yeats) Maud Gonne. There are plenty of different tours and events on throughout the year.

5 Dublin Castle
Since it was first built in 1230, Dublin Castle has served countless purposes, from military fortress to prison to treasury. Today, the guided tour of the grounds includes sights such as the Viking defence bank, medieval undercroft and the Chapel Royal. It’s the setting for every big state event, including presidential inaugurations.

Of course, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Literary pubs, food festivals, tasty restaurants… Dublin is buzzing. Here’s a link to get you started
