  • Guinness Storehouse
  • Temple Bar
  • This is the perfect Welcome to Dublin Top 10, immersing you in the spirit of the city in terms of culture, fun, drink, literature and history. If you can't find something here to enjoy you're in the wrong city!

    Start with a visit to the Guinness Storehouse. The history and marketing of this world-beating brand is Dublin's greatest success story and it's explained beautifully. The complimentary pint of Guinness on the 9th floor with breathtaking views of Dublin before you, is the perfect end to a visit.

    If you're at all interested in the intriguing modern history of Dublin then a visit to Kilmainham Gaol is key to your understanding. It makes a perfect companion to the excellent 1916 Rebellion Walking Tour. Do the walk first, then the Gaol in the afternoon. It's a sobering experience, to be sure, so in the evening you'll need cheering up.

    We have just the thing. The Dublin Literary Pub Tour may sound a little daunting, but you can relax - the actors who will be your guides are great showmen and comedians.

    Another great way to have fun in Dublin is the Viking Splash Tour. It's impossible to describe just how much fun it can be riding round the streets and waterways of Dublin in an amphibious vehicle with a Viking helmet on, but trust us - once again it's the quality of the guide who makes this such a memorable trip.

    Finally, pause for thought and reflect on the beauty and history of Ireland's past at the National Museum (Archaeology) section, the Book of Kells Trinity College exhibition, St Patrick's Cathedral or Dublin City Gallery. Each of these is a perfect rainy day visit.
