On the east coast of Ireland, Dublin is located at the mouth of the River Liffey, which runs through the city. There's no shortage of sights to explore in Dublin. Visit a castle, or take a walking tour through the Georgian streets of Merrion Square. Shop O' Connell Street or ride on top of the city's hop-on hop-off double-decker tour buses. Or just kick back at the St. James's Gate Guinness Brewery and enjoy a tasty pint with a perfectly, frothy head.
St. Patrick's Cathedral
The national cathedral for the Protestant Church of Ireland. Many historically significant articles of history are housed here, from ancient battle flags to banners of the Knights of St. Patrick, founded here in 1783, as well as largest church organ in all of Ireland.
Dublin's architectural golden age is exemplified by the 18th century Georgian restoration of Dublin Castle, originally built in the 13th century. Wander through the elegant rooms and view the lavish decorations and beautiful antique furniture.
Ireland's premier university where the priceless Book of Kells, a brilliantly illustrated medieval text of the four gospels, is displayed at the Trinity College Old Library.
