17. We’ve so much history
As you’d expect from a city that’s more than 1,000 years old, there’s ancient history to discover all over Dublin. From streets and buildings to cultural objects, you’ll find remnants of our Victorian, Georgian, medieval and even Viking eras!
18. Kilmainham Gaol
If the walls of Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin could talk…
This hugely popular attraction is where some of modern Irish history’s most disturbing and inspirational dramas have played out. Down the centuries, the Gaol ‘hosted’ the likes of Robert Emmet, Parnell and the leaders of the 1916 Rising.
It’s always busy – so get there early!
