    Things to do in Dublin

    There is only one thing i want to do in Dublin, and that is to visit the Guiness brewery. People say the Guiness tastes better in Dublin so i want to know if this is a myth or if it is actually true! Can anyone verify that fact and also tell us what else there is to do over there (while sober )?

    Re: Things to do in Dublin

    Hi! I went to Dublin for two days and the things I did were: visit Trinity College (beautiful architecture), go shopping in the city centre (a bit expensive for me) and take a drive to the pub! By the way Kehoe is the most popular it seems

    Thanks, I forgot about Trinity College. It is like the Cambridge of Ireland so it's worth a visit. Never heard of Kehoe, but I have heard the name Cork which I think it outside of Dublin. Sounds like the pub and Guiness are the main attractions then - better stock up on alka seltzer

    Re: Things to do in Dublin

    Hi, Dublin City is quite small, and you can easily walk around - the main streets are Grafton Street, Henry Street, Mary Street and O'Connell Street. Trinity College is in the city, as is Christchurch, and the Viking Experience (Dublinia). A little further out are Kilmainham Gaol, and Dublin Zoo.

    Public transport is via bus, DART (suburban rail system) and LUAS (tram). There's also an open top bus tour of Dublin and a ghost bus tour which I've heard is very good. There are also some lovely villages in the suburbs, Howth being one, easily accessible by DART. Don't bother with the Wax Museum; but the National Museum, and the Art Gallery are worth a look if you like museums.

    I am fond of studying that’s why I visited The Chester Beatty Library. This library was the treasure of knowledge. I found many informative books there.ST.Patrick's cathedral is the largest cathedral of the Dublin and people have the religious attraction towards this cathedral.

    The Chester Beatty Library is in Dublin Castle. I went after finding it on a list of free things to do in Dublin, although I was skeptical of how interesting a library could be. It ended up being well worth the visit!

    The museum is small; you can easily see it an hour. Stretch that out to two hours if you want to read more or watch the audiovisual presentations. The displays include elaborate illuminated texts reminiscent of the Book of Kells, beautifully decorated book covers, and a variety of artwork related to culture and religion. Beatty collected a great deal of important Christian, Islamic, Buddhist, and other works including some impressive scrolls and the earliest extant Bible (some pages written on papyrus in Greek).

    Unfortunately, no photography is allowed. Also, no backpacks are allowed, and the lockers for backpacks cost a Euro, so it's best not to carry one.

    The library is near Trinity College where you can see the book of Kells. It's also a fairly short walk from the (free) archaeology museum, so you could easily do two or three of these things in one day. The museum of decorative arts and history (also free) is a longer walk (about an hour).
    It was a great idea to go with yellowstone yosemite and grand canyon tours tfor enjoy the summer.

    The Library's rich collection of manuscripts, prints, icons, miniature paintings, early printed books and objects d'art from countries across the world offers visitors a visual feast.

    Egyptian papyrus texts, beautifully illuminated copies of the Qur'an, the Bible, European medieval and renaissance manuscripts are among the highlights of the collection.

    Turkish and Persian miniatures and striking Buddhist paintings are also on display, as are Chinese dragon robes and
    Japanese woodblock prints.

    Re: Things to do in Dublin

    I'd like to share my travel experience with the members here. Last spring my friends and I decided to travel to Northern Ireland, 'Dublin'. Our airport choice was Shannon Airport, a very safe place, with all travel facilities to the average tourist. We landed on Shannon Airport and thus our journey began. Before our flight, we were on the lookout for a top travel service provider in the area, we pretty much wished to visit the Irish Heritage regions with all the castles and historical significance. We found some tours, especially coach tours since we didn't own a car and the costs for rent-a-car were not justified. One guy on a forum suggested to try Global Coach Tours in Ireland. We were a bit reluctant at first, however we found good reviews and decided to try our luck. The experience was great. We even found a dedicated tour to Northern Ireland.
