    Dublin castle is a good place to visit. The day we were there, there were no guides tours but the self-guided tour was nice. The displays were well laid out and good desciptions.

    It was a great way to enjoy a sunny and cool afternoon, walking through the paths around the huge grounds of the property under lush green and old (I saw some trees planted back in 1877) trees. There’s a lake on one end, a walled garden, a clock tower and some animal enclosures spread across one side.

    My walk started from the cafe which sits next to the lake, all the way to the main entrance, then back all the way to the clock tower. On my way back, I went into the walled garden and the grounds behind the house.

    The place is so peaceful and quiet, it’s a good place to relax.

    Building dates from 18 century, it's located in Dublin city center - Dame street. It's next to the Dublin castle, so it's great to do both tours. In town hall you'll find beautiful exhibition about historical Dublin.

    Yes, the post office in O'Connell Street is a place where you can buy stamps and send parcels but it is also a place significant in Irish History as it is a place where there was a battle fought for the liberation of Ireland from the British.

    Located opposite the Spire it is quite easy to find if you are exploring the city.

    This is an important civic building at the head of one of the best preserved Georgian streets in North Dublin. The exterior of grey stone is imposing and impressive. Pleasant grounds have benches to rest on as you take a break from your walk around the city.

    This building houses the Irish Parliament and it’s steeped in history. Also it’s a stunning piece or architecture. Well worth a visit.

    Interesting from a architecture point of view . Nice rounded building set just off the Liffey and close to the entrance to the Phoenix Park.

    A multitude of windows are on the facades, the objective being to have the best views of the sky, a requirement that was communicated to the architect by the weather forecasters.

    Built in 1979 it has an innovative and distinctive pyramidal design, which took account of the above stipulation and additionally minimised sunlight reduction on neighbouring homes. It was constructed on the site of Marlborough House, a remand home for boys.
