Hotel Location

Dublin

Founded in 841, Dublin combines the historic delights of an old city with a vibrant contemporary scene. Attractions range from landmarks and monuments dating back hundreds of years to cutting edge museums. Tour a 13th-century castle, study the work of contemporary artists, explore a Viking warship, learn about some of the world's most famous authors, or just sit back and enjoy a pint of Guinness. Bonus: Although 1.6 million people live in Dublin, the city is still small and manageable – most of the main attractions are located in or close to the city center, making it easy to navigate by foot.
 
What to see:
 
Christ Church Cathedral
 
The medieval Christ Church Cathedral is the oldest building in Dublin. Amazingly, the crypt predates the 11th-century cathedral. Catch the choral evensong if you want to really take in the atmosphere of the cathedral (which was updated in the 19th century).

The Spire of Dublin
 
One of Dublin's newest landmarks, this striking 398-foot needle is made of reflective stainless steel. The tallest work of public art in the world, the spire is an architectural marvel that starts with a base of less than 10 feet. At night, a beacon of light is sent skyward from the top.
 
Ha'penny Bridge
 
This striking cast iron pedestrian bridge crosses the River Liffey, an iconic landmark and one of the most photographed sights in Dublin. Some 27,000 people walk across the bridge on a daily basis. The name comes from the halfpenny toll levied on all users of the bridge up until 1919.
 
Dublin Castle
 
In the heart of historic Dublin is the Dublin Castle, which dates to the 13th century and was built on a site previously settled by the Vikings. The castle has served as a military fortress, a prison, treasury, courts of law and the seat of English Administration in Ireland for 700 years. Where the present garden sits was once the site of the famous Black Pool or 'Dubh Linn,’ from which the city gets its name.

Chester Beatty Library
 
Consistently winning accolades as one of Dublin's best museums, the Chester Beatty Library contains a diverse array of manuscripts, books, calligraphies, miniatures paintings and more from countries all across the world. Located within the Dublin Castle, highlights of the collection include Egyptian papyrus texts, Buddhist paintings, stunningly elaborate versions of both the Koran and Bible, Chinese dragon robes, and other artistic treasures.
