Visiting somewhere for the first time can be a little daunting, especially when it’s a thriving, metropolitan city that is teeming with sights and attractions. Dublin certainly falls into this category, with its streets full of Georgian architecture, museums and top-notch attractions to fill your time. Book into one of the Travelodge hotels in Dublin and take a look at these five must-see attractions to add to your itinerary.
The Guinness Storehouse – it’d be sacrilege if you visited Dublin and didn’t take an afternoon to wander the renowned brewery. After all, the black stuff is one thing that the city is famous for, and a tour of the Storehouse is highly recommended. Buy your ticket online to avoid the queues and the on-the-door prices.
The Old Jameson Distillery – Sticking with booze, this whiskey distillery is also a must. Learn more about the smooth, triple distilled whiskey and enjoy a tot or two as part of this fabulous tour.
Dublin Castle – Crammed with artefacts that will help you to immerse yourself in its history, Dublin Castle should be high on your to-do list.
The Book of Kells – Located in the Old Library at Trinity College, the Book of Kells is arguably the most beautiful book in the world, with intricate, lavish detailing dating back to the 9th century.
Kilmainham Gaol – At 200 years old, this prison has its fair share of stories. It was first used in 1796 and a guided tour of the gaol will introduce you to Irish crime and punishment, as well as more about the country’s history.You almost certainly won’t be able to appreciate Dublin in it’s entirety during a short break. However, if you plan your time wisely, you can enjoy as much as you can; you could always book a return trip the Emerald Isle anyway!
