Highlights of Dublin that you have to see
Travellers have had Ireland on the brain for years – with its rugged coastlines, traditional irish pubs and friendly locals. Our accounting superstar, Lynn, recently returned from an Irish tour and she has a couple of recommendations for anyone visiting Dublin. Here are 3 highlights that you just can’t miss!
The Book of Kells
Trinity College Dublin is home to picturesque buildings and manicured grounds, but the real reason to visit is to see The Book of Kells exhibition. Walk through the marvelous Trinity College Library and learn about The Book of Kells. This amazing manuscript features the 4 gospels and is thought to have been written close to the year 800. It is not hard to understand why The Book of Kells is famous – it has ornate decoration and illustrations that make it an impressive sight for the eyes.
The Gresham Hotel
If you’re looking for an iconic hotel with plenty of history and aesthetically pleasing décor, then there’s no better place to stay than The Gresham Hotel. Opened in 1817 by Thomas Gresham, the hotel has been welcoming guests to Dublin for over 200 years. It has the perfect location, situated right in the middle of Dublin, meaning that you are close to all the popular city sights. Expect 4 star service, Waterford crystal chandeliers, and beautiful views across the city.
Temple Bar District
Possibly one of Dublin’s most lively and interesting areas, Temple Bar District, constantly places high up on traveler’s to-do lists when they visit the city. There are cobblestone streets, art galleries, as well as countless restaurants and pubs to satisfy the foodie in you. For a vibrant atmosphere during day and night, a visit to Temple Bar is a must – you’ll especially enjoy the fact that it’s a riverside neighbourhood.
