Spending a Day in Dublin: What To Do

September 03, 2020
Those who don't want to go to Dublin must not know what to do here. To be perfectly frank, the Irish capital is one of the most underrated cities in the world. People tend to focus on the flashier New York, the busier London, or the more classic Paris. But Dublin has more than enough to offer as well. It has its fair share of historic sights, amazing restaurants, interesting museums, and more. And while the weather could be better, overall, Dublin will keep you excited even for a whole 24 hours. So here are some things you can do in the city for a day.

Spending a Day in Dublin: What To Do

 

Get to Know the Iconic Guinness Beer

If there's one thing the Irish are beloved for, it's their famous Guinness beer. It's become the quintessential alcoholic beverage for, not just Ireland, but many people across the world for. And if you're ever interested to know how it's made, you can always visit the famous Guinness Stockhouse in the Irish capital. Here, you will go on a tour that shows and details the history of the iconic beer, see how it's made, and get to taste some freshly-brewed batch by the end. And to further push you to visit this site, even Queen Elizabeth II herself has gone here!

See The Historic Structures

While Dublin isn't exactly Paris or Rome when it comes to historical sites, it still has its own that will still fascinate you. And you can devote an entire day to just visiting them and seeing what Ireland was like in the last couple of centuries. A good place to start is the Dublin Castle, a 13th-century medieval-like structure. It used to be the seat of British power here in Ireland, though its best not to mention that past so as to not insult the Irish. If you're a Roman Catholic like most residents here, you might also appreciate St. Patrick's Cathedral. The gothic architecture and its famous Marsh's Library will tickle any historic fancy you may have.

Go Museum-hopping

Up for some learning? Dublin's many museums will educate you the whole day through! You'd be surprised by how much you'll learn in the Irish capital. If you think it's all drinking Guinness here, you'd be mistaken! The National History Museum, for instance, shows much of what has happened, not only in Ireland but in the rest of Europe as well. A surprising highlight is the Vikings section, displaying relics of that past civilization. There's also Dublin Writer's Museum, a shrine of sorts dedicated to the works of such masters like Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, and Samuel Beckett.

Read at Trinity College

Dublin has many fine schools but Trinity College stands out for one particular reason. Its library is one of the biggest in the city, possibly even in the whole country. You can spend hours just reading and researching, learning about stuff you probably never would have had you not visited the Irish capital. Though the most famous book in this school is without a doubt the Book of Kells. A ninth-century manuscript containing the four Gospels of the Evangelists. It's written in Latin, has centuries-old illustrations, and is quite the historic relic.

A Foodie Trip to Temple Bar

Finally, if your stomach can take it, you can also spend an entire day eating your heart out at Temple Bar. Not only is it one of Dublin's best neighborhoods to both visit and live in, but it's also a lively street full of eating establishments that will keep your tummy full and happy. Of course, the actual Temple Bar is the main draw. It's an old-school Irish pub that serves—you guessed it!—heaps of Guinness Beer! The seafood restaurant Klaw is also a notable Dublin culinary hotspot here. You'll get your fill of fresh seafood, the most you'd find in the Irish capital.
