Best Sights to See in Dublin

Just in case you manage to stop gorging yourself on amazing food, drinks and coffee while in Dublin, we’ve compiled some of the best sights in Dublin to give yourself a little culture.

1. Teeling Whiskey Distillery

 
It’s probably no surprise to our frequent readers that a distillery lands the top spot. Though not one of the usual suspects, the Teeling Distillery is a great tour and definitely worth going to. They are a bit newer, and the first distillery to bring whiskey production back to Dublin in 125 years!! It’s a family run business, which showed when my tour was taken over by John Teeling himself.

 

2. Guinness Storehouse

 
 A classic and probably what most people associate with Dublin. The Guinness Storehouse is an institution and even appreciated by those who aren’t ardent alcohol drinkers. The basic tour is self guided, and I’d recommend to most people since you can go at your own pace. Don’t forget to get a drink at the bar at the top level for some fantastic views.

 

3. Jameson Distillery

 
Another institution in Dublin. The Jameson tour includes a tasting of a few different types of whiskey. The tour also goes relatively in depth with the differences between Irish Whiskey and other varieties.
 
 

4. Saint Stephen’s Green

 
 A nice park perfect for a lovely afternoon or evening stroll. Some of the geese have attitudes though, so consider yourself warned.
 
 

5. Ha’penny Bridge

 
Pretty bridge that used to cost a ha’penny to cross, but that was removed around 1919. People try to put love-locks on the bridge, hoping for everlasting love or some shit, but those get cut down pretty frequently now.
 
 

6. Book of Kells

 
One of the oldest and most beautiful bibles to date, the Book of Kells is absolutely worth a visit. The crowds can get a little intense sometimes though.
 
 

7. St. Patrick’s Cathedral

 
An old church in Dublin. Though not the most grand medieval cathedral around, tickets are cheap and it’s near the city center.
 
 

8. General Post Office

 
Why am I sending you to a post office? Well, the General Post Office in Dublin served as the headquarters to the leaders of Easter Rising in 1916, a turning point in Irish history.
