“Deer roam forested areas filled with mature trees within this area known as 'Dublin's playground'. This large park also houses Dublin Zoo and Áras an Uachtaráin, the President’s residence.”

“Booking your tickets 2 weeks in advance is strongly recommended! The jail symbolises the tradition of militant and constitutional nationalism from the rebellion of 1798 to the Irish Civil War of 1922-23. Leaders of the rebellions of 1798, 1803, 1848,1867 and 1916 were detained and in some cases executed here. Many members of the Irish Republican movement during the Anglo-Irish War (1919-21) were also detained in Kilmainham Gaol, guarded by British troops. Names such as Henry Joy McCracken, Robert Emmet, Anne Devlin, Charles Stewart Parnell and the leaders of 1916 will always be associated with the building. It should not be forgotten however that, as a county gaol, Kilmainham held thousands of ordinary men, women, and children. Their crimes ranged from petty offenses such as stealing food to more serious crimes such as murder or rape. Convicts from many parts of Ireland were held here for long periods waiting to be transported to Australia. Kilmainham Gaol Museum is operated and managed by the Office of Public Works.”

Irisches Pub
“Dating back to 1198, The Brazen Head is Irelands oldest pub. There is a palpable sense of history within these timeworn walls. If you are looking for the true Irish pub experience then The Brazen Head should be your first port of call. Walking distance from the Guinness Storehouse!”

Farmers Market
“Ramble across Herbert Park and over to Lansdowne Road Dart Station and take the train (approx 2.60) to Howth. Beautiful seaview walks and don't forget to buy or sample the famous Dublin Bay Prawns available in many of the fine food houses there. Dart back will take approx 25 mins and the walk back to the house is another 20, but well worth it. ”

Government Building
“Perched on the site of a Danish Viking fortress from 930AD, and with its first stone cast by King John of England in 1230, Dublin Castle’s historical significance did not stop there. Under British rule from that point until 1921 (it was a key target during the 1916 Easter Rising), it has been a court, a fortress, even a site of execution in its time, and its architecture has evolved and grown with each metamorphasis. In truth, it feels more like a rambling campus than an actual castle – not many turrets in sight – but it’s the setting for every big state event, including presidential inaugurations. Wander the grounds, or take a guided tour to the state apartments, medieval undercroft and the Chapel Royal.”

“This stunning gothic cathedral has been a Dublin landmark for nearly a thousand years. As well as being the home church of Jonathan Swift, author of Gulliver's Travels, who was the Dean here from 1713 - 1745, it's also the final resting place of Strongbow (1130-1176), known for his leading role in the Norman invasion of Ireland. A statue of Sir Benjamin Lee Guinness, grandson of the Guinness Brewery founder Arthur Guinness, stands outside -- he financed a major renovation of the cathedral in the mid-1860s. Entrance is €7 for adults, €6 for students and seniors.”

“ Dublin Zoo is one of the largest zoo's in Europe and is a huge family attraction in Dublin. It is usually best to visit it during the week as weekends can be very busy. The gorilla habitat is particularly worth seeing but the whole zoo is regularly expanding and improving. A great day out for a family. https://www.dublinzoo.ie/”
