A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Guinness Storehouse and Kilmainham Gaol Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Croke Park Stadium Tour & GAA Museum and Merrion Square. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Temple Bar, make a trip to The Book of Kells and the Old Library Exhibition, walk around Phoenix Park, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Ireland.
