Guinness Storehouse

posted by irishiiiiiis on 7 May 2009 at 04:35

This is Ireland's number 1 tourist spot and mecca for those who love a pint. The tour of the Guinness Storehouse will take you thru 5 floors of everything you wanted or not wanted to know about Guinness. The floors are made to resemble a glass of Guinness. You start out learning the history, then the ingredients, then the brewing processes, advertising, are you a drunk? (no I am not kidding) mastering how to pour a proper pint, then finally ending in a free pint on the 7th floor. You will even come home with a certificate from Guinness that you know how to pour a proper pint! Good times.

James Joyce Center

posted by DVC_Chris on 6 May 2009 at 01:47

One of my favorite authors is James Joyce, so when I visited Dublin, I wanted to be sure to stop by the museum dedicated to him. Not to miss are walking tours that leave from the museum that point out James Joyce’s Dublin, and shows buildings that had significant to his life and works.

Christ Church Cathedral

posted by quovademus on 2 May 2009 at 15:29

Christ Church Cathedral is located in "medieval" Dublin and is an interesting tourist stop. While Dublin offers a host of interest tourist attractions, a stop at Christ Church Cathedral should definitely be considered. A rather quick stop located near several other attractions (such as the castle), the Cathedral is an interesting stop if only for the fact that it was built around 1030 AD. Full of interesting art, architecture, and sculpture, it offers a nice respite from a full and busy day of sightseeing. It also offers the rather entertaining display of a petrified cat chasing a petrified mouse which were found in the organ. It should be noted, that if you are student, make sure you have your student id, you can get half off admission, which is very helpful if traveling on a budget. In summary, Christ Church Cathedral is not a must see stop if your time in Dublin is limited, but it is a nice addition to one's sightseeing adventure if touring medieval Dublin.

Traditional Irish Music Pub Crawl, Dublin

posted by gsteele on 2 May 2009 at 13:11

This traditional Irish Music Pub Crawl is a very fun night. The cost for the pub crawl is currently 12 Euros. The "crawl" starts at John Gogarty Pub in the Temple Bar District of Dublin. In each of the 3 pubs that you visit the group has a private room. The two tour guides assigned to our pub crawl provide the entertainment as well. They give you a a little history lesson along with some great Irish music. You then leave for the Ha Penny Bar and again the group has their own private room. The tour ends at Brannigans Beer emporium where they opened up the entertainment to the group. It was a lot of fun, just wish it was longer.

Book of Kells

posted by irishiiiiiis on 30 April 2009 at 13:00

The Book of Kells was written around 800 AD. This manuscript of the gospels is intricately painted and designed. 2 of the 4 Book of Kells are always on display with one page being turned each day to expose another breathtaking page. They do not take reservations, but you do need to purchase tickets which currently cost 9 Euros for adults. There are discount tickets for seniors and students as well as family packages. Plan on waiting from 30 minutes to an hour depending on the time of the year. Once inside it will take you about one hour to enjoy the library.
