Wander around Dublin Zoo.

 

 

This is the largest zoo in Ireland and one of Dublin's most popular attractions. It opened in 1831 and covers over 69 acres of Phoenix Park. Exhibits include World of Cats, World of Primates, The Kaziranga Forest Trail, Fringes of the Arctic, African Plains and Endangered Species.

Tour the Guinness Storehouse.

 

 

Few people visit Ireland without sampling Guinness. The Storehouse is Ireland's number one visitor attraction according to TripAdvisor, and has seven floors that boast the history of the drink, telling the story from its origins at St. James's Gate in Dublin to its growth as a global brand.

Kiss the Blarney Stone.

 

 

Built nearly 600 years ago, Blarney Castle attracts millions of visitors, making it one of Ireland's greatest treasures. This might have something to do with the legendary Blarney Stone found at the top of the tower. Kiss it and apparently you'll never be lost for words again.

Stumble along a pub crawl.

 

 

There’s no better place to sample Irish culture and friendliness than in the pub and it remains at the heart of Ireland’s social life. Join the locals and sample some traditional music. The fire red Tig Cóilí in Galway City has two live céilidh a day and is a real authentic gem.

Walk along the Cliffs of Moher.

 

 

This stunning natural attraction stands 214m high at one point and the cliffs stretch for five miles along the Atlantic coast of County Clare in the west of Ireland. O’Brien’s Tower is located near the highest point, and has been a viewing platform for visitors for hundreds of years.

See the Passage Grave at Newgrange.

 

 

This is one of the most historically significant sights in Ireland. The tomb dates back to around 3,000 BC, making it 400 years older than the Pyramids of Egypt and 1,000 years older than Stonehenge. It’s best known for the illumination of the passage by the winter solstice sun.

Explore St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

 

 

People all over the world join the Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and apparently, at this cathedral, St. Paddy himself dunked the Irish heathens into the waters of a well. Built in 1891, the church that bears his name stands in one of the earliest Christian sites in Dublin.

Visit the National Museum of Ireland.

 

 

The archaeology branch of Ireland’s National Museum includes an amazing collection of prehistoric gold objects, such as the exquisite 8th Century Ardagh Chalice. You’ll also see the world’s finest examples of Celtic art and ancient objects recovered from Ireland’s bogs.

Hike in the Burren.

 

 

Here you’ll find the most unique and fascinating landscape in Ireland. With distinctive Limestone rock formations and over 700 different species of plants and ferns, it’s an area of ecological paradise. It’s also a hit with hikers; so if you love walking the 45km walkway is a must.

Go dancing in Dublin.

 

 

If it’s vibrant night-life you’re after, Dublin is the place to be. It is one of Europe's most youthful cites and is popular with both hen and stag parties. The centre has a wide choice of pubs and bars, most are located in and around Grafton Street, Wexford Street and Leeson Street.
