Places to visit

Guinness Storehouse
 
One of the most popular attractions in Ireland, the Guinness Storehouse is located in the heart of the Guinness factory complex. The excellent visitor centre tells the dramatic story of the 250 year history of Guinness and a complimentary drink in the highest bar in Ireland, the Gravity bar, awaits!
 
Dublin Castle
 
The centre of English oppression and misrule in Ireland for seven centuries, Dublin Castle was the centre for British rule until 1922 when it was handed over to the new Irish Free State. See the Old Walls of Dublin, State Apartments, and the treasury.
 
Temple Bar
 
Dublin's Cultural Quarter is located in the heart of the City Centre.  Some of Dublin's best night spots, restaurants and unusual shops line these narrow, cobbled streets running between the Bank of Ireland and Christ Church Cathedral.
 
The Ha’penny Bridge
 
The Ha'penny Bridge is one of the symbols of Dublin. This beautiful old Georgian pedestrian bridge, built in the 18th Century, spans the River Liffey between O'Connell St and Capel St. It used to cost one half penny in old English money to cross the bridge, but even though the toll was eventually taken away, the name still persists.
 
The Custom House
 
One of Dublin's most magnificent buildings, The Custom House was designed by James Gandon and built between 1781-91. Amongst many architectural features are the 14 keystone heads which represent the 13 Irish Rivers and the Atlantic Ocean, the cornerstones of Irish trade. It currently houses the Dept of the Environment.
 
St. Patricks Cathedral
 
The National Church of the Church of Ireland, it was originally built in 1192 on the site where it was believed that St. Patrick performed his first baptism in Ireland in a well on the grounds, which is still there.
