Guinness Storehouse is the most visited  tourist attraction in Ireland, it is a visitor centre alongside the brewery, a museum of beer-making, a gallery of past ads campaigns, restaurants, retail shop, and the famous Gravity Bar with panoramic views.


Book of Kells, (8th century manuscript) and the Trinity Old Library and Long hall tourthe Book of Kells is an illuminated 8th century manuscript and the iconic Old Library Long Hall is well worth a visit. Trinity College is the oldest University in Ireland, it is in the centre of Dublin City, the college campus is open to the public or there is also a student led campus tour that takes 30 mins.


Kilmainham Gaol (Gaol is pronounced Jail) was the County Jail for Dublin from 1796 until 1924. Today the building symbolises the tradition of militant and constitutional nationalism from the rebellion of 1798 to the Irish Civil War of 1922-23. Bookings can only be made on-line in advance.


EPIC: The Irish Emigration Museum and also the CHQ building.  Very modern and interactive museum tells the story of the Irish emigrants who became scientists, politicians, poets, artists and even outlaws all over the world, located in the historic CHQ building. Entertaining and informative and absolutely no leprechauns.


Dublinia is a fun, kid-friendly look at Dublin's Viking and medieval past, archaeology with a cool town model. It is a not for profit heritage centre, adjacent to Christchurch Cathedral


14 Henrietta Street guided tours of a Georgian townhouse from aristocracy glory into a tenement slum over 150-year time period.
