Things to see in Dublin
Guinness Storehouse: In the heart of the Guinness factory complex this excellent visitor centre tells the dramatic story of the 250 year history of Guinness. A complimentary drink in the highest bar in Ireland, the Gravity bar is part of your visit here.
Kilmainham Gaol: Europe's largest disused, and Ireland's most famous prison. The leaders of the 1916 Rebellion were executed here by the English.
The Porterhouse: Dublin's oldest microbrewery pub, the Porterhouse, makes up for that with the quality of its beer. The pub only sells its own label of beers, but the stouts, lagers and ales are better than any mass-produced beer. The Oyster Stout, made with real oysters, is very good. The excellent pub food, Irish stew, and bangers and mash will fill you up without breaking the bank.
Dublin Castle: The history of Dublin Castle is fascinating. Most of what constitutes the current castle dates back to the 18th Century. During British Rule in Ireland Dublin Castle was the centre of the occupational force.
