    An amazing look at history and you get to finish it off at the Gravity bar at the top of the factory with a 360 degree view of Dublin and a free pint! Good stuff!

    It's like a baby Thames. We went on a nice day and people where kayaking and boating around. So calming.

    Walked around it during a tour. It's very cool. I didn't know there were castles in Dublin. The green space around it is gorgeous.

    It's THE Temple Bar in The Temple Bar so of course it is packed! We were tere on Labor Day weekend and you could not get inside. I'm not sure how it is on a normal weekend but I would recommend checking it ot on a weekday, the bars here are always busy!

    Old Jameson Distillery

    18.72 mi from Russborough House
    24 reviews

    The Jameson Distillery is a must do attraction in Dublin. Enjoy a glass of Jameson during your short wait for the tour to start. After the interesting video that kicks off the tour, make sure to be a volunteer for something that comes at the end of the tour (they wont tell you, and neither will I, but its fun!).

    Glendalough is breathtakingly beautiful (even in the winter when it's cold, damp, and drab). There are a number of hikes/walks around the two lakes. It's well worth taking the longer hike up and around the second lake, for spectacular views down on both lakes.

    We were hungry after a long walk and stopped in for a great hearty meal. Both the Irish stew and the Irish burger were excellent! The best stew, with the biggest chunks of meat we had in Dublin.

    Dublin's own HOHO bus is a great choice to see the city in an elevated double decker. The bus route covers most of the tourists attractions in town as it offers two routes that stretches across the city.

    Grand Canal

    A perfect place for a long walk in Dublin. Start in the Docklands on foot or bike and follow the path along the canal all the way around the south side of the city. You can go on for miles (far beyond the city, in fact) so be sure to plan your route beforehand. The canal isn't used much any ...

    You not have to be a fan of James Joyce or U2 (though I am) to enjoy this beautiful park. Peaceful oasis in the bustle of Dublin.

    Massive park with a couple castles, the papal cross, the Deerfield residence, the Wellington memorial and some native deer. It's on the bus tour route, but you can easily spend a day exploring. I went in December which was just too cold.

    The Brazen Head is the oldest pub in Dublin dating back to 1198!! It's worth a stop for a night, prices are reasonable and the staff is welcoming.

    A great market just off of Henry Street and O'Connell street. A large number of vendors selling fruit, vegetables, fish, flowers and more. Prices are low, and choice is good. Don't try and pick your own though, tell the vendor what you want and they choose and bag it for you. Worth a look even if you're not buying, to ...
