Guinness Storehouse

One of the most synonymous things related to Ireland, is its world-famous beverage, Guinness. While on your venture round the Irish capital, you will be able to visit the very place where it is created. The Guinness Storehouse building dating back to 1904 was once the fermentation plant of the brewery and is now a seven-storey visitor experience dedicated to the history of the making of this renowned beer.

The highlight for many visitors is the Gravity Bar, where visitors can enjoy incredible panoramic views of Dublin city all the while indulging in a complimentary pint of Guinness.

See the Spire of Dublin

One of the most prominent landmarks in the city, it is also probably the most striking. Standing a colossal 120 metres above the ground, it gets as thin as 15 centimetres in diameter at the tip. When the night arrives, the spire is lit up to act as a beacon for the city.

It is truly a stunning piece of architecture and offers up some wonderful photo opportunities to those who like to keep some memories or have scenic shots to show your friends and family on social media.

Kilmainham Prison

Ireland’s answer to Alcatraz in San Francisco, Kilmainham is one of the most historic unoccupied jails in the world. The interior is haunting yet extremely interesting, and the free tour will give you great insight into what happened inside the prison when it was fully operational. There is even more film history in Dublin as the world famous Italian Job had scenes filmed here.

National Museum of Ireland

Ireland’s national museum of decorative arts and economic, social, political and military history. On display are artefacts ranging from weaponry, furniture, folklore and costumes to silver, ceramics and glassware.

Together the collections span the entire Irish experience and offer unique insights into the country’s heritage and history, alongside important displays from other great cultures of the world.

Cliffs of Moher

If you fancy getting away from the busy city life for a while, then for a classic Irish road trip, there are the gorgeous sights of the Cliffs of Moher. Not only are the views to die for, but you’ll be setting foot on your own slice of Hollywood movies, as hugely successful films like Harry Potter and The Princess Bride have had scenes shot at this location. It’s a great break away from the rugby.
