Located at the east coast of Ireland, this word is derived from an Irish word Dubhlinn meaning “Dark Tidal Pool”. Dublin is the Capital city and the largest city in Ireland.

Being ranked as Global city, Dublin is a historical and contemporary centre for Education, the Arts, Administration and Industry. The presence of companies like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, eBay, PayPal, Yahoo!, Facebook, Twitter, Accenture and Pfizer has driven to the economic expansion of this city, the reason Ireland gets referred as “Tech Capital of Europe”. This lively city is as intimate as a small village and as friendly as a local Irish pub.

Here’s a list of some of the best things to do in Dublin:

Party like the Irish in Temple Bar: This is one of the most iconic bars in Dublin where tourists come flocking just to have that drink inside its walls. It’s located at the heart of this city and plays a huge role contributing to the night scenes in this city.

THE GUINNESS STOREHOUSE: Being the most popular tourist attraction of Ireland, it is located in the heart of St. James’ Gate Brewery.

You can raise a glass to the gleaming, multimedia exhibitions here which will also take you on a tour of Irish Brewing history. The interior is designed to look exactly like a pint of Guinness itself and is known to be the largest pint in the world making “Black Stuff” famous all over.

Read a book at the Trinity College of Library: A room where Bibliophiles like me would dream of finding themselves in, it is also the home to famous “Book of Kells”.

You can take a tour to the Long Room library which has the collection of 200,000 of Trinity’s oldest books.

Go Back in Time to Dublin Castle: This place has witnessed the country’s most pivotal events and over 800 years of Irish memory is encapsulated in its walls.

Wander the grounds or take a guided tour to the state apartments and the Chapel Royal.

One of the best free museums in all of Dublin is definitely the National Museum of Ireland where you will get to see the Viking exhibit and the exquisite gold artefact displays. If you wish to have a look at the European and Irish arts, take a tour to National Gallery of Ireland and the National Museum of Decorative Arts and History.

You can take a walk to a strikingly unique white-picketed beauty, the Ha’penny Bridge which has become the Main monument to identify Dublin.

One of the easiest monuments to spot from afar is The Spire which gets illuminated by Sun for all to see.

Drink inside a Restored Cathedral at The Church: One of the most unique and beautiful bars in the city, The Church is not what its name may make it seem. Earlier it was named as St. Mary’s church but after getting restored, it got converted to popular bar and nightclub.

All you need to bring with you is your appetite and a willingness to embark on an Irish culinary adventure and you can have the best tastes here from coddle and brown bread, bacon and cabbage, fish and chips to the beloved ham and cheese toasties.

It seems there's a barista on every corner and cup in every hand here, you have a sea of cafes to choose for your taste.

You can get to know Dublin through books of exceptional beauty, liquid legacies, castles, parks and mini-museums as it is a seamless blend of classic visitor sights and excellent social scene.
