Visit Dublin and do not miss anything

Things to see

Dublin's greatest charms lie in its picturesque streets and its welcoming residents. Start your leisurely stroll through the city at O'Connell Street. This street is home to The Spire of Dublin, a 121.2 m high stainless steel, pin-like monument and one of the largest sculptures in the world. At the end of O'Connell Street, you will cross the River Liffey into Trinity College, with its lively Temple Bar pub district.

Trinity College

At the college, don't miss the Long Room or the Book of Kells exhibit. The Long Room is the high-ceilinged, 65 m long main chamber of the Old Library. With over 4 million books, it is the largest library in the country. The Book of Kells is a Gospel book written by Celtic monks around 800 AD. This carefully preserved treasure is a cornerstone of Celtic Christianity. Many popular symbols and even tattoos recreate detailing and decoration found in the book.

Guinness Storehouse

In addition to the Temple Bar area, beer lovers must be sure to visit the Guinness Storehouse. At the base of this warehouse-cum-tourist attraction's atrium (shaped like a giant pint glass) there is a copy of the 9,000-year lease signed for the brewery site. During your visit, learn how Guinness beer is crafted, combining both tradition and innovation. At the end of the visit, stop at the rooftop Gravity Bar and down a pint as you take in the spectacular panoramic cityscape.
