Take a picture of the iconic red facade of Temple Bar and then stroll inside for an Irish whiskey. You can easily spend a night at Temple Bar and the surrounding region. Be careful, though! Temple Bar is one of Europe’s most expensive drinking destinations.

2. Eat like a local!

Irish Fish and Chips

Irish cuisine is seriously undervalued. It is highly recommended that you eat your way around Ireland. While most Irish cuisine focuses on the home-cooked, hearty dishes in the countryside, you may still find some tasty options in Dublin.

The typical greasy lunch may be at Leo Burdocks Fish n’ Chips. After becoming well-known for supporting the troops in the 1916 war for independence, Leo Burdocks began receiving visits from prominent people and politicians worldwide.

3. Visit the Trinity College Library for the Afternoon

4. Christ Church Cathedral

Christ Church Cathedral

Christ Church Cathedral is the oldest building in Dublin, having been constructed in 1030. It also has the largest crypt in all of Great Britain and Ireland. The guided tour is ideal for gaining insight into the Cathedral’s vibrant history, and there are frequent events where visitors can live out a small slice of the Cathedral’s past for themselves.

If you happen to be in Dublin on a Sunday, you may stroll along the river and hear the bells from Christ Church Cathedral ring out.

The best part is that you may enter the church and chime in the bells yourself! If you’re interested, you can sign up for the rehearsal on Friday before the main event on Sunday.
