Cheery folk singers, strong stouts and friendly locals make Dublin a city many put on their top list of destinations, especially when in Ireland. Whether the city calls you therefor a day or more, these items below should not be overlooked when exploring Dublin.

  1.  Earn a certificate for pouring your own pint of beer at the Guinness Academy. This experience is for adults only and costs 32 euros.
  2.  If Irish stouts don’t call your name, tour the Old Jameson Distillery and take a one- hour whiskey cocktail making masterclass.
  3.  Bibliophiles, get lost in a sea of books at the Trinity College Library and be sure to visit the Book of Kells. If you can’t get enough, go on the Dublin Literary   Pub Crawl. Tour guides will quote Joyce, Wilde and more during your expedition between pints of beer and cider.
  4.  Take a peek inside St. Patrick’s Cathedral and let yourself be amazed by this stunning architectural beauty. Climbing to the belfry of The Christ Church Cathedral to listen to the bells toll is also a must.
  5.  Delight your tastebuds to traditional fish and chips at Leo Burdock. Your stomach will thank you. Irish stew, boxty (potato) pancakes and soda bread are also must eats.
  6.  Walk across the “half-penny,” or Ha’Penny Bridge—its official name is the Liffey Bridge and it was built in 181
  7.  Meander and pub crawl your way through Temple Bar, Dublin’s buzzing neighborhood flooded with beer, whiskey and folk music.
  8.  Be fancy and drink tea and east sumptuous sweets at Queen of Tarts, a charming cafe located in Cows Lane and Temple Bar.
  9.  Stroll through Suffolk Street, where you will see a statue of Molly Malone, a legendary Dubliner whose identity isn’t fully discovered.
  10.  Take a day trip from Dublin to enjoy some hiking in the Wicklow Mountains. This vast area is about an hour away from Dublin.
