    So cool: gorgeous Victorian jail (well, as gorgeous as a jail can be), now made into a history museum, largely about the 1916 Easter Rising. You go through on a guided tour, and the guide we had was very good. There's a well laid out exhibition area to tour while you're waiting for the next tour. Great combo of spooky, ...

    It's a beautiful campus. Unfortunately the long library and thus the Book of Kells were closed for Christmas, and we missed seeing them.

    National Museum of Ireland - Archaeology

    This was the family's favorite museum. The exhibits were well laid out. We learned a lot of history. My wife really enjoyed the old jewelry and gold. The kids love the interactive computer exhibits. I thought the viking and medieval stuff was first rate. It made all of us happy, and best of all it was free.

    Watched a football game here. It was packed. As soon as the match was over, the place cleared out. Loved it for local color.

    Old school Dublin pub. I loved the atmosphere. A nice place to rest, have a pint, and recharge for further activities. It's conveniently on a side street right off Grafton Street shopping.

    A terrific small collection of paintings. I saw new Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Vermeer, van Gogh, Rembrandt, Caravaggio, and tons of Irish artist I was previously unknown to me. I was disappointed that I missed the Turner exhibition, with was on the wall, but covered with brown paper, and roped off from the public, FRUSTRATING, as he is one of ...

    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.

    This is a really quirky little bookstore that shares the same floor space as Freebird Records. It doesn't have a huge collection but it's definitely a lot of fun to browse. I love the zany little objects that appear above the book cases.

    It's basically another historic shopping district, but a v scenic one which connects the area around TCD to St Stephen's Green. Famous for the buskers, but last time I was there I was dismayed to yet another example of how Europe has become standardized these last ten years. Same boutiques everywhere.

    It's really beautiful inside. I liked the architecture. Great variety of shops. You pay to use the toilet. The wifi is very poor.
