Dublin is perhaps Ireland’s most popular city. It is relatively small, especially when compared to other major world cities. With a population of only a little over a million, Dublin is quite compact. The best thing about it is that you can easily move from one place to the other and go sightseeing without much effort! Here are some of the best places to go sightseeing in the city.

Trinity College
The country’s oldest college was founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth herself. The campus is very beautiful and you can find the oldest manuscript in the world here – the Book of Kells.

Dublin Castle
Built at the beginning of the 13th century, the castle is easy to find for it is right in the middle of the city. A visit to the castle will take your breath away for it is so beautiful and steeped in history as well.

Kilmainham Gaol
For a different kind of experience, visit the Kilmainham Gaol, the most historic prison this side of the world. This structure was constructed in 1795 and was home to some of the most revered people in Ireland, including Charles Stewart Parnell, Robert Emmet, Eamon de Valera, Padraig Pearse and James Connolly.

Guinness Storehouse
Ahh, what is a visit to Ireland without a close encounter with the world famous Guinness Beer? The Guinness Storehouse is perhaps the biggest and most popular brewery in all of Ireland. It was built in 1759 and continues to provide the world with its awesome brew. There is a restaurant in the premises, where you can unwind after the tour.
