Weekend in Dublin

A September 2004 trip to Dublin by LondonTraveller

Quote: Dublin is a great city. I do not recommend it for its beauty, but for its character. This is a very interesting city with very friendly people. I also saw Dublin on the Dublin Pass.

Quick Tips:

Best Way To Get Around:

DART is the best way to get around.

Guinness Storehouse

Attraction | "Ireland's Beer"

Quote:
The Guinness Storehouse is one of the most incredible things to see/do in Dublin. It is huge! You get a great overview of the beer-making process and the life of Arthur Guinness. The best feature, of course, is the free sample. At the very top of the storehouse, you are able to sample Guinness with a view of the city. It is an incredible view. I also skipped the line for buying tickets with the Dublin Pass www.dublinpass.com.

Kilmainham Gaol

Attraction | "Kilmainham Jail"

Quote:
This historic jail was used to house the prisoners of the revolution. The guided tour is very interesting, and it gives you a good understanding about the history of Ireland. I saw this with the Dublin Pass. For more information, check it out at www.dublinpass.com.

The Spire

Attraction

Quote:
This big metal spike sticks hundreds of feet up in the air. Yes, that is all it is, but it is quite fascinating to see the massive thing that is the spire. There is not too much else to say about this.
