Dublin is one of the most popular cities to visit for a city break as it really does have so much to do and see. You will never be able to see it all in one weekend, but whether you are looking for restaurants near Olympia theatre for a romantic meal for two, historical places to see, or some areas of natural beauty, there are plenty of things to see and do in Dublin.
Here are some of the top picks…
St Patricks Cathedral – This beautiful building was constructed in 1191 and is the biggest church in the whole of Ireland! It is pretty special as it is the place where the Saint himself baptised the people who converted to Christianity over a millennia ago! Take a stroll around the beautiful building and the grounds and enjoy the history of this special place.
Trinity College Library – If you love to read this is the place for you! The beautiful old library inspired the library of Hogwarts in Harry Potter. It is home to thousands of ancient books and the college itself was created in 1592. Some of the past famous students at this college include Oscar Wile and Bram Stoker!
Kilmainham Gaol – This prison is one of the more sinister tourist attractions. You can take a guided tour of this imposing building and discover many disturbing stories as well as seeing how the prisoners housed in this prison lived, and some who died here as they were executed.
