Must-Do's in Dublin

Celtic Rider’s recommendations!!!

 St Stephens Green

  • St. Stephens Green is Dublin's best known Victorian public park. This 9 hectare park is a sanctuary from the bustle of the city streets with tree linked walks, shrubberies, colourful flowerbeds, herbaceous borders and an ornamental lake. There are lunchtime concerts held here in the summer months.

 Trinity College & Library

  • Trinity College is the oldest university in Ireland. The College is famed for its great treasures- the Book of Kells, a 9th century illuminated manuscript, the books of Durrow and Armagh and an early Irish harp.

    Trinity College Dublin is regarded as Irelands most distinguished university. It has an academic tradition spanning many centuries.

    It was founded by Elizabeth I in 1592 in an attempt to stop students going to the continent and getting revolutionary ideas or being influenced by the Pope in Rome. For centuries the college was the centre of Protestant religion and Catholics couldn't join unless they accepted the Protestant faith. Catholics also had to get special permission from the bishop to attend the college or else face the possibility of excommunication. These restrictions were not completely lifted until 1970 and the fact that 70% of the students today are Catholic shows the turn around that has occurred over the last 30 years.

 Dublinia &The Viking World

  • Dublinia is one of Dublin’s top visitor attractions with three exciting exhibitions located on three levels in a beautiful building at the historic crossroads of Dublin.

 The Brazen Head Pub

  • The Brazen Head is Dublin’s oldest pub. A short walk from Christchurch Cathedral and the Guinness Brewery, it is well worth a visit for both its historical value and reputation as one of Dublin’s best Irish music venues

 Guinness Storehouse

  • Guinness Storehouse is Ireland’s number 1 international visitor attraction and a must see in Dublin. This massive seven –storey building, a former fermentation plant, has been remodelled  into the shape of giant pint of Guinness.

 Old City, Temple Bar

  • The architecturally award wining Old City area of Temple Bar offers a welcome calming alternative to the rush and bustle of our busy city centre.

 The Church Bar & Restaurant

  • The beautifully restored former Saint Mary’s Church is one of Dublin’s most popular Bar /restaurant emporiums.

 National Botanic Gardens

  • The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin were founded by the Royal Dublin Society in 1795. The gardens, 19.5 hectares on the south bank of the River Tolka contain many attractive features including an arboretum sensory garden, rock garden and burren area, large pond, extensive herbaceous borders and annual display of decorative plants including a rare example of Victorian carpet bedding.

 St. Patrick’s  Cathedral

  • Built in honour of Ireland’s patron saint, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral stands adjacent to the famous well where tradition has it Saint Patrick baptized converts on his visit to Dublin.

 National Museum of Ireland

  • Walk into the National Museum of Ireland on Kildare Street and you are magically transported back in time. A stroll through time will take you all the way back to 7,000BC.

 Phoenix Park

  • The Phoenix Park at 707 hectares (1752 acres) is the largest enclosed recreational space within any European capital city.  The Phoenix Park was established in 1662 by one of Ireland’s most illustrious viceroys, James Butler, Duke of Ormond, on behalf of King Charles II.  Conceived as a Royal deer park, it originally included the demesne of Kilmainham Priory south of the River Liffey, but with the building of the Royal Hospital at Kilmainham, which commenced in 1680, the Park was reduced to its present size, all of which is now north of the river.  Shortly after the Park’s acquisition it was enclosed within a stone wall, which was initially poorly constructed.  Subsequent wall repair and new build were necessary as the Park’s size and boundaries were adjusted and realigned.  In 1668, Marcus Trevor, Viscount Dungannon, was appointed Ranger who, with two other keepers, was responsible for the deer and managing the Park’s enclosures and newly formed plantations.

 Dublin Zoo

  • Dublin Zoo, located in the Phoenix Park in the heart of Dublin city, opened its doors on September 1, 1831. In 1840, featuring 46 mammals and 72 birds donated by London Zoo, the radical decision was to throw its gates open to the public for a penny on Sundays. This gesture, remarkable for that time, established the affectionate relationship that still exists between Dubliners and the ‘ah-Zoo’ in the Phoenix Park. Now, utterly transformed, Dublin Zoo’s 28 hectares is attracting over 1 million visitors a year. Officially Ireland’s biggest family attraction, not only offers a great day out for all, but also a journey of learning and discovery about the world’s precious wildlife.
