First timers to this beautiful city may wish to embark on a tour to get their bearings. Walking tours will ensure you don’t miss a thing and can pop into shops and points of interest along the way, but the hop-on-hop-off buses will mean you have time to see everything, and is a good idea for those travelling with children. There are certainly a few must dos on anyone’s list to Dublin and this includes St. Patrick’s Cathedral, one of the only remaining medieval buildings left in the Irish capital and whose most famous Dean was none other than Jonathan Swift, the author of Gulliver’s Travels. For those wishing to attend a service, they are run regularly and there is no admission charge.
Children will find Dublin a fun and exciting city, with animal lovers in their element thanks to Dublin Zoo. Situated in central Dublin, within 70 acres of Phoenix Park, you’ll discover a range of rare and exotic species from all over the globe. Marvel at red pandas, listen to the monkeys chatter and gaze at the beautiful herd of Asian elephants. Throughout the day there is a host of talks and events, including the sealion show and feeding the rhinos. Conservation is key, and the zoo aims to help teach people about its breeding programs and protection of endangered species. Whether rain or shine, the National Aquatic Centre is a great family day out, as Europe’s biggest indoor water park. The centre includes some of the best and biggest water rides in Europe, with plenty of attractions for thrill seekers.
The National Gallery of Ireland first opened its doors in 1864, and continues to be popular with both locals and visitors. With free entry, you can peruse the 2,500 paintings by the likes of Picasso, Vermeer, Van Gogh and Monet at your leisure. The Gallery also offers free talks and workshops for families and keen artists so it’s worth calling up before hand should you wish to book yourself in.
Enjoy your stay in the magical city of Dublin!
