Why Go on a Tour of Dublin

The marvelous capital of Ireland, Dublin, is an ancient city whose long history stretches back for dozens of centuries. Known today as a well-developed sophisticated metropolis, Dublin originates from a few settlements, including a Scandinavian colony which was later defeated by locals.

Ask anyone who's been to Dublin, it is impossible to imagine this glorious Irish city without its numerous historic sights. Among the top things which you can surely add to your Dublin itinerary is the Dublin Castle, the most popular tourist attraction that's over 800 years old. Another highlight is the Trinity College Library where you may see the renowned Book of Kells, a famous Gospel book manuscript. Along with this, one of the notorious spots not to miss during your Dublin tour is the John F. Kennedy Plaque, commemorating the 35th US President.

But Dublin is not just about history, right? More precisely, it goes much beyond peaceful contemplation and strolls around architectural gems. As such, the Jameson Distillery represents one of the most favored tourist attractions. Here all whiskey lovers may take part in a tasting ceremony, enjoying the outstanding flavor of this intriguing beverage. What is more, while in Dublin don't miss out on the classic Irish stew, a renown local dish, sided with a glass of tasty Guinness (Dublin is the hometown of this beer, by the way).

Rightfully, a so-called "visual" Dublin sightseeing tour cannot be fully perceived and enjoyed in isolation from traditional Irish music and dance. Both the legendary Riverdance and Lord of the Dance - two world-famous Irish dance troops - give not only a spectacle but allow to plunge into the fascinating world of Celtic music as well. Do not forget to visit the glorious Grafton Street, where you'll find plenty of stuff to see, listen, and do from shopping to chilling at the cafes. Actually, outstanding Bono used to give impromptu live concerts right on Grafton Street, explaining why Dublin seems to be just soaked with rock!
