Grafton Street
A shopper’s heaven stretching from St Stephens Green to College Green, Grafton Street offers some of the best shops and department’s stores in Ireland.

Shop to the background music of street performers of classical, rock and jazz music, dare to stop and watch the mine artists bat an eyelid. Lots going on from face painting to hair braiding to poetry sessions and who knows what!

Don’t forget top pop in to “Bewleys” famous coffee house for that well-earned treat - bring your credit card!

 

 

Dublin Castle
A 13th century Castle, having survived various sieges, being used as a prison and nearly destroyed by fire, Dublin castle is certainly worth a visit.

An expansive building with a massive courtyard, it also houses The Chester Beatty Library.

 

 

Temple Bar
Known as the “left Bank” of Dublin’s city centre the Temple Bar area offers a colossal amount of pubs and restaurants with street entertainers, trendy unique shops, theatre festivals and ad hoc concerts.

Temple Bar is a hive of activity and is certainly worth a visit. If you are somewhat adverse to crowds, perhaps an afternoon stroll would be preferable! Just a five-minute walk away, it’s very busy so be prepared!

 

 

Trinity College
Founded in 1592, Trinity College is one of Dublin’s best-known landmarks and home to some of our great historical scholars.

The famous Book of Kells, a 1200-year-old manuscript and one of the oldest books in the world is on display here and is certainly worth a visit.

And there is more to see and do – visit the Library long room, watch the 45-minute audiovisual display on “The Dublin Experience”, or simply while away the hours in the Reading Room. Just a two-minute walk away; make sure you get to visit.
