    This was high on our list when planning our trip to Dublin so I was extremely disappointed when I tried to book tickets about two weeks before traveling only to find that it was sold out. It did say that some tickets might be available on the day. They release tickets daily at 9.15 online so be ready. I was able to buy them and was very surprised to find that they were only €8. ( other tourist attractions in Dublin are far more expensive) This tour is highly recommended and Jo the guide explained all and was very interesting. The tour took about one hour and then we had the opportunity to go to the museum which was also very interesting.

    My son & I had some time to kill back in May and, visiting Dublin for the first time ever, we almost felt obliged to check out the Guinness Storehouse. We booked online in advance and then walked from the city centre to this place. As we got close up we were a little perturbed to see so many huge tourist coaches and a long line of horse drawn carriages waiting outside. Clearly there was a lot of footfall here.

    We made our way inside, joined a shortish queue and had our tickets on my Smartphone checked. All good. We then shuffled into the gift shop area where a young lady shouted a short explanation about the fact that ours was a self guided tour over the 7 floors of this original building. After that we were on our own to walk casually through the many interactive displays which plotted the history of Guinness and explained how it is very precisely brewed here. Quite interesting really but the film on one of the higher floors was a bit naff. .

    We didn't buy any of the specialty tours available but after having tasted a micro glass of the black stuff we made our way to the very crowded Gravity Bar at the top of the building. Here you have 360° views over Dublin. With a freshly poured Guinness in hand we pushed through the crowds until we hit on two seats at the bar. I eventually sank 4 glasses of this stuff (my son doesn't drink beer) and was quite happy by the end of our visit here.

    We did the history tour of the cemetery. A beautiful setting. Our guide, Pat was brilliant. Informative and witty. Made for a great experience.

    Trinity College is so beautiful! I really enjoyed walking around and seeing the long room with the Book of Kells. The gift shop was lovely as well, though I do wish they had sold some cold beverages.

    This is definitely a must see when in Dublin. We got our tickets online one day in advance of going to see this interesting site. It is not a good site for children as there is much to read which explains the rich historical value. The library is the amazing visual site that will have you in awe of the place.

    Beautiful cathedral with a long history. I took many photos and just enjoyed the atmosphere and said my prayers. Recommend!

    A visit to Dublin would never be complete without a visit to Temple Bar. Here you will find a bit of everything that might represent Ireland and Tourism combined. Here you will find Pubs packed with patrons and live musical entertainers. Add to this the abundance of souvenir retailers and eating establishments willing to provide refreshments. Mix in the hordes of attendees, and you are within a mix of discordant symmetry.

    Incredible to see this part of Dublin history remembered and reviewed.
    Our tour guide (story teller) Gillian was amazing at telling the story of the house, the people and the lives lived there. Her passion for the house and the people that lived that walked the floors was both emotive and factual. The house is a must do for anyone interested in history or just people.

    Our wonderful guide, Annette, took us around the stadium and was very informative and engaging.
    Lots of facts, history and fun facts too kept our small group entertained throughout.
    Cannot recommend this tour highly enough - whether you’re a GAA fan, a sports fan or a fan of Irish history, this tour really should be on everyone’s itinerary.

    We went to Christ Church for a free organ recital which is weekly during the summer season. The concert series is open to everyone and admission is free with a donation requested. The concert lasted 45 minutes and was excellent - IMHO there is nothing like the spectacular nature of a church organ played in a cathedral by an expert organist in our case it was James Short. If you like organ music we highly recommend attending one (or more!) of the series - we greatly enjoyed it!

    We found ourselves walking up and down this street in a number of occasions during our recent trip over to Dublin for an important soccer match. There is a good many different stores here - big names as well as smaller boutique type shops. There is a good choice of coffee shops and places to grab a snack or even something more substantial to eat.

    There weren't so many street performers there when we visited. At least up until the evening of the big UEFA Europa League soccer match the place was well policed by many good natured members of the Garda.

    Deceptively small on the outside, this museum goes through a comprehensive history of the Vikings in Dublin. Suitable for all ages as there are interactive things for kids ( including dress ups!)
    I recommend you prebook tickets online as they had issues with taking credit cards both days we tried to get in

    These statues and the information provided helps tell an awful story of how humans have been treated in the past. Let's make sure we don't continue to 'punish' the poor. You can see many homeless in Dublin still today.

    The historic castle was not only home to the British and Irish governments but host to many dignitaries and writers like Charles Dickens and Bram Stoker. Its high ceilings and ornate chandeliers are beautiful as are the rugs, drapes, portraits and everything else. I loved it!

    Really devastated to hear about the terrible destruction of the mummies. I went there with my girlfriend that same day, on the 12pm tour. The mummies and crypts were absolutely stunning! The guide (John I think?) was simply lovely too. Had it not been for the awful news, I would have recommended this to everyone.
    I pray that something can be salvaged and that whatever remains can be safe, be that back at the church or perhaps a new home in the Archaeology museum. 😢
