The National Botanic Gardens are noted for a fine plant collections holding over 15,000 plant species and cultivars from a variety of habitats from all around the world. The Gardens are also famous for the exquisitely restored and planted glasshouses, notably the Turner Curvilinear Range and the Great Palm House. They are adjacent to Glasnevin Cemetery so it makes sense to visit both...

This is one of my favourite places in Dublin to wander around. There is a museum which is worth visiting and tours also but if you just want to walk around the grounds it's free. Please note this is a functional cemetery so be respectful at all times, especially if taking photos. The Grave Diggers Pub (Kavanagh's) next door is great for a pint of Guinness and does lovely food too.

The Phoenix Park is the largest enclosed public park in any capital city in Europe. It was originally formed as a royal hunting Park in the 1660s and opened to the public in 1747. A large herd of fallow deer still remain to this day. The Park is also home to the Zoological Gardens, Áras an Uachtaráin, and Victorian flower gardens. The Phoenix Park is only a mile and a half from O’Connell Street. Both passive and active recreational pursuits may be viewed or pursued such as walking, running, polo, cricket, hurling, and many more. The Glen Pond is set in very scenic surrounds in the Furry Glen. There are many walks and cycle trails available to the public.

Designed by Ninian Niven in 1865, but with a history dating back over three hundred years, the Iveagh Gardens are located close to St Stephen’s Green Park in Dublin city centre. From modest beginnings as an earl’s lawn, the gardens went on to host the splendour of the Dublin Exhibition Palace in 1865. Many of the original landscape features are still in place, or have been restored and conserved since 1995. These include the yew maze, the rosarium, and the fountains. The cascade in particular is a stunning spectacle in summer. Iveagh Gardens are popularly known as Dublin’s ‘Secret Garden’.

One of the oldest pubs in Dublin, this pub was named after a chapel dedicated to Saint George in 1181. The Long Hall preserves a Victorian atmosphere evoking a by-gone age. The original pub which backs on to Dublin Castle opened in the 1860's and was much used by the Fenians. Today, The Long Hall retains much of its old charm; on the walls are engravings of the dealings of the Russian Emperor Paul I with the Polish patriot Kosiusko as well as prints of Gainsborough ladies. Over the entrance to the toilets are panels of art nouveau glass. The woodwork interior adds an air of authenticity to the premises.

The Stags Head dates back a few centuries, but was rebuilt in 1895 by the architect, A.J McLoughlin. A veritable shrine to the art of drink, McLoughlin designed the bar with stag themed stained glass windows, mirrors, wood panelling and of course a large stag's head over the bar. This lavishly re-designed Victorian bar was an instant success with Dublin punters in the 1890s and was even frequented by a young James Joyce.

Worth checking out for a pint and a toastie. O'Donoghue's has a rich heritage and stands on a very historical site in Dublin City. Yet it's more modern musical history is really the stuff of legends. Ask any Irish man to name the artists or bands that have shaped Irish traditional and contemporary music and The name 'the Dubliners' always comes up. Christy Moore and the Dubliners have spent many a memorable night entertaining Dublin's music lovers in this bar. It is this spirit that is kept alive by today's musicians. It has an array of drawings and photos of Irish musicians adorning its walls. The pub serves soup and sandwiches only, all day every day. There is live music every night.

Classic old Irish pub. Good for a quiet pint. The pub consists of the main bar downstairs, and the upstairs lounge known as the Chatham Lounge. Neary's is a good example of late Victorian public house design. It has a fine brick exterior, down to the elegant cast iron arms holding up lamps at the main door. The pub is named after Leo Neary who combined the running of the pub with the duties of Honary Consul of the Republic of Guatemala.

AKA The Gravediggers. Ideal after a walk in Glasnevin Cemetery and The Botanic Gardens, but make sure you go into the OLD BAR for the real experience (the lounge is more modern) "Founded in 1833, perhaps one of the longest generational pub in Ireland, often you'll find three generations of Kavanaghs behind the bar no music, no TV, conversation is king. Famed for great pints of plain, nestled in a quiet square near the north city center, one of the few gems left, a true traditional Dublin bar, little has changed here. Kavanagh’s lounge serves lunch Mon-Fri 12noon - 3pm, Evening Tapas 6pm-8.30pm".

"In 1998, director Barbara Dawson secured the donation of Francis Bacon's studio and the Hugh Lane team removed the studio and it's entire contents from London to Dublin. The team, comprised archaeologists who made the survey and elevation drawings of the small studio, mapping out the spaces and locations of the objects and conservators and curators who tagged and packed each of the items, including the dust. The walls, doors floor and ceiling were also removed. The relocated studio opened to the public in 2001".

The Irish Museum of Modern Art is worth checking out (even if you're not an art lover the grounds are stunning). I'd recommend combining IMMA and a trip to Kilmainham Gaol as they are just across the street from each other. "IMMA’s home is the extraordinary historical site of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. Our programme extends beyond the gallery space, activating the beautiful grounds and buildings of the entire campus. A visit to IMMA can include time to discover, connect and reflect in our galleries, grounds, formal gardens, meadows, café or shop. You’ll find important info to inform your visit below.

You have to see The Bog Bodies... Discover gold, bog bodies, ceramics, glass, Viking artefacts as well many other archaeological objects found in Ireland and around the world. Note: The National Gallery, The National Museum (Archaeology), The National Museum (Natural History- AKA "The Dead Zoo"), and the National Library are all in the same area, so it's worth covering them together. All are free of charge. The Dead Zoo is my personal favourite.
One of my favourite places in Dublin, also know as The Dead Zoo! A Victorian oddity that still draws visitors today, discover the natural world through lifelike zoological models, geological samples and engaging activity areas. (Don;t forget to go upstairs!).

All are free of charge. The Dead Zoo is my personal favourite.

Excellent and succinct museum with a little bit of everything. I'd class this as a "must do". Booking required.

Marsh’s Library, built by Archbishop Narcissus Marsh (1638-1713), was the first public library in Ireland and is one of the very few 18th century buildings left in Dublin that is still being used for its original purpose. The interior of the library, with its beautiful dark oak bookcases each with carved and lettered gables, topped by a mitre, and the three elegant wired alcoves or ‘cages’ where the readers were locked in with rare books, remains unchanged since it was built three hundred years ago. It is a magnificent example of a 17th century scholars’ library. Note: Marsh's Library is just around the corner from St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Sightseeing
Centre point of the City, TCD is lovely just to wander around the grounds and get some peace. It is also home to the Book of Kells and the Long Room Library, as well as one of the smallest cemeteries in Ireland known as Chaloner's Corner. Also worthwhile is the Geology Department Building; if it's looks locked just push the door to see the stunning foyer.

I personally prefer St. Patrick's Cathedral over Christchurch (although they are both beautiful). Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland. The building is a busy place that serves as a place of worship, a visitor attraction and as a host for many events. A dedicated team of staff, volunteers and members of the Cathedral community are responsible for ensuring this building’s ongoing life and ministry is maintained for future generations to enjoy. Note: Marsh's Library is just around the corner from St. Patrick's Cathedral.

See the mummies at St Michan’s! St Michan’s which was founded in 1095, was the only church located on the north side of Dublin City until 1686. The present structure dates from 1685 and was renovated in 1825. The interior, which has changed little since Victorian times, still has its original organ. Another notable artefact is the Penitant’s Desk, commissioned in 1724 and used for public confession. Below the church are five long burial vaults containing the mummified remains of many of Dublin’s most influential families from 1600 to 1800. In the vaults, guests can view the death mask of Wolfe Tone and the coffins of the 1798 rebels John and Henry Sheares.
