Dublin, the Republic of Ireland’s largest and capital city, is a brilliant and vibrant area to visit, located on the eastern part of the island. Over seven million tourists visit this buzzing capital each year, with its brilliant museums, wealth of art galleries, stunning coastline and infectious live music across its cosy pubs and bars.
A visit to Dublin Castle here is a must here, located in the heart of the thriving city, off Dame Street. The 13th century castle, now a major Irish government complex, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. The Guinness Storehouse and its St. James Gate Brewery in Dublin welcomes over one million visitors each year alone, which offers a great exhibition of the 250-year-old history of Guinness.

The arch is widely thought to be an extension of Galway’s medieval city walls and features a wooden sculpture, called the Madonna of the Quays.
