Top five attractions in Dublin

Trinity College Library – housing the legendary Book of Kells, recognized as an illuminated copy of the Gospels that hail all the way from 800 AD, the Trinity College Library also has the Long Room which is a stunning barrel-vaulted hall lined with over 200,000 books. The best time to visit this main attraction is from May to September where you can also ask for a student-guided tour. They are usually open from Monday to Saturday from 9.00 am to 4.30pm

Georgian Dublin – take a stroll around the Merrion and the Fitzwilliam Squares if you want to see the longa and singular red-brick terraces, doorways full of pillars and bright and vibrant roses that are so characteristic of Dublin. If you can step into the house Number Twenty Nine, you will be able to see rooms that still look as if though they were built in the 1700s. You can visit this attraction on Tuesdays and Sundays from 9 in the morning to 5 in the evening.

The Guinness Storehouse – this infamous brewery is now a massive exhibition that covers probably everything that you want to know about the place. The admission is known to be expensive but then, viewers do also get to taste the black concoction in a glass. The place is open all year around except from July to August.

National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology, and History – the highlight of this attraction are the bronze artefacts and the incredible jewelry that have been preserved for millennia in the Irish bogs. The architecture of this Victorian building is quite jaw-dropping too. The entrance is free of charge and you can visit this attraction any time of the year.

The National gallery of Ireland – with a well displayed selection of European art that hail from the Middle Ages all the way to the 20th century, Picasso and Caranvaggio sit proud here. But the Irish art of Jack B Yeats and the Millennium Wing, this gallery is now just an all-rounder. The gallery is open 6 days a week from Monday to Saturday all year.
