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 Dublin Castle are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Croke Park Stadium Tour & GAA Museum and National Library of Ireland. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Kilmainham Gaol Museum, make a trip to The Book of Kells and the Old Library Exhibition, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Ireland, and walk around Phoenix Park.
