Dublin makes for a great introduction to the rest of the Ireland. On arrival, you will find yourself pleasantly surprised with everything from its heritage buildings to its pub culture.

Historic Dublin, the capital of the Republic of Ireland, was originally a Viking settlement. Today, it is home to more than one-third of the country's population. A perfect base for visiting the rest of the Ireland as well as for holiday makers visiting for a weekend break, Dublin keeps its guests busy no matter their travel preferences. You can visit notable buildings, museums, and parks, but one must-do is experiencing the city's lively pubs, from the traditional to the microbrewery.
You can go to Christ Church Cathedral, a medieval building which is considered the oldest church in the city. Make sure to head to the cathedral's crypt, which contains books, carvings, tabernacles, and various other historical curiosities. St Patrick's Church is worth a visit, too, as the largest church in the country. For a look into Dublin's Viking past, Dublinia and the Viking World, a living museum in the city center, is well worth a visit. A great Dublin garden square to pay a visit to is Merrion Square, which features a statue of the Irish writer Oscar Wilde.
One activity that combines a great tourist attraction and drinking is a visit to the Guinness Storehouse. There are exhibits here about Ireland's famous drink, and the price of admission includes a pint of Guinness at the bar upstairs. For something completely Irish, you can catch a match of Gaelic football at Croke Park Stadium. Pub crawls are popular with tourists as they give participants a taste of the city's fantastic pub culture. Some recommended traditional pubs to visit include Peadar Kearney's, the Brazen Head, and the Bachelor Inn.
