With so many renowned sights in Dublin, it'd be sensible to take some comfortable shoes. At the top of your travel program should be a journey to Dublin Castle and Christ Church Cathedral. After that, you might want to crank up the pace a notch as you really can't leave without swinging by Ha' Penny Bridge and the Dublinia.
Experience the fabulous flavors of this bustling metropolis by checking out places like the National Museum of Natural History and the Book of Kells. If you've got a little more time up your sleeve, the Abbey Theatre and the Spire are well worth visiting too.
Sometimes we get so lost in the flurry of life that we don't take time to slow down and smell the roses. Spend an hour or two drinking in the magnificent fragrances at Garden of Remembrance. Want some more options? Great theater can challenge our views and asks us to aspire to bigger and better things. Attend a play at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre and open your mind to some new ideas. But that's not all there is. Eager to attend a conference or other event while you're in town? Check the schedule at The Convention Centre Dublin and see if anything captures your interest.
