Dublin, a city with village character
Despite economic boom in the Irish capital, Dublin has lost none of its charm. If you looking for a hectic big city life, then Dublin is not what you are looking for. The Irish are always relaxed and positive and like to sit together while enjoying a traditional Guinness. There is much more than that to explore and experience in the Irish capital.
I made several plans for trips on the weekends e.g. to Galway and Cork – unfortunately I didn‘t pursue them because in the end I rather wanted to stay in Dublin to stroll the probably 100. time through the city center, along the Liffey, visiting Secondhand-shops or desperately looking for cozy cafés when the weather suddenly turned and the rain was pouring down. My recommendations here are most definitely Simon‘s Place in the George‘s Street Arcade as well as Restaurant Wuff (23 Benburb Street, Dublin 7) in Smithfield.

National Botanic Garden
The National Botanic Garden is located in the Glasnevin district, north of the Liffey. On an area of approx. 20 hectares, the garden includes various theme areas such as a vegetable garden, a rosarium or an alpine garden. There are also several greenhouses for palm trees, cacti and much more.
The Glasnevin cemetery was founded in 1832 as the first graveyard for Catholics. Today the graveyard is the largest in Ireland with an area of 50 hectares. When visiting the cemetery, you can learn a lot about Ireland's history while admiring the impressive tombs.
Irish National Museum
The Irish National Museum was founded in 1877 and today comprises around 4 million exhibits from the fields of history, culture and natural history.
St. Patrick’s Cathedral
The largest church in Ireland, the St. Patrick's Cathedral, was built from 1191 onwards. Every now and then the church got expanded with the money of wealth families such as the Guinness family. It is located in the middle of Dublin.
Book of Kells and Trinity College
The "Book of Kells" is one of the best examples of insular book painting. One does not agree on its origin, but many assume that it was produced around 800 AD. the book shows the four evangelists, as well as illustrations of Christ and Mary. In Trinity College, some pages of the book are displayed in a showcase.
Kilmainham Gaol, a prison, was opened in 1796. It became popular during the times of the Irish independence wars. During guided tours, visitors get a detailed insight into Irish history.
Dublin Castle was built as a castle in the Middle Ages, but was converted into a palace due to numerous modifications. Visitors are particularly interested in the State Apartments, where Queen Victoria celebrated her 60th birthday in 1897 and where parts of the Northern Ireland peace talks took place.
Parks (St. Stephen's Green)
St. Stephen's Green invites to relax in the heart of Dublin. The St. Stephen's Green is a public park which attracts many visitors with free concerts and theatrical performances, particularly during the summer month.
Molly Malone Statue
The Molly Malone Statue is known for its same-named song. It is located on the way from Trinity College to Grafton Street. Supposedly, Molly Malone was a fishmonger in Dublin in the 17th century, but because of the great poverty at that time she sold not only fish, but also her body.
Half Penny Bridge
The Half Penny Bridge is probably the most famous landmark in Dublin. The Irish say that they almost always meet an acquaintance on the bridge since it is very centrally located and close to the shopping streets.
