Dublin Flights Guide
You may not find a leprechaun when you explore Ireland's capital, but you will discover a number of interesting sights, as well as friendly people with a wicked sense of humour, and an unrivalled energy and warmth.
Dublin's old city is full of historic sites, but that's not all you'll find when you explore. You'll learn a lot about the people of Dublin themselves, their love of music and comedy, as well as their thirst for good whisky and culture. You see, Dublin has been designated a City of Literature by UNESCO, as so many Irish writers were born here.
History beckons around every corner, but a good place to start is Trinity College, the first university in the country, founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth the First. It's library is home to over 200 000 antiquarian texts, as well as the world-famous Book of Kells, an illuminated edition of the gospels that dates all the way back to 800AD.
A lot of the city's famous past covers all the literary figures who lived here over the past three centuries, but aside from a number of fascinating museums and churches, Dublin is also home to various sights that tell the story of its drinking history. One of these is the Guiness Storehouse, located on the site of the original St James Gate Brewery, where Dublin's famous export, Guiness beer, was brewed. Of course, there is no shortage of Irish pubs in the city where you can sample this famous brew, as well as the much-loved Irish whisky.
So once you've tired of exploring, there's nothing better than a welcome drink with a bunch of friendly Dubliners. It's the perfect way to end a day of sightseeing!
