On the north side of the Liffey is O’Connell Street–the main thoroughfare, which is intersected by numerous shopping streets, including Henry Street and Talbot Street. On the south side are St. Stephen’s Green, Grafton Street, Trinity College, Christ Church, St. Patrick’s Cathedrals, and many other attractions.
What to See
Christ Church Cathedral. Dating back to the 11th century, is the oldest building in Dublin. Particularly interesting is the crypt, which pre-dates the cathedral.
St Patrick’s Cathedral. Founded in 1191, it is the largest church in Ireland.
Dublinia & the Viking World. A heritage centre located in central Dublin, at the heart of the medieval city. The exhibitions at Dublinia explore life as it was in the medieval city and the world of the Vikings.
Old Library at Trinity College & Book of Kells. The gorgeously illustrated original manuscript of the Book of Kells is the main draw here, but the massive Long Hall of the Old library which houses around 3 million books is equally if not even more impressive.
Phoenix Park. The largest enclosed urban park in Europe. Includes a polo field and Dublin Zoo.
Dublin Castle, which was first founded as a major defensive work on the orders of England’s King John in 1204.
Other landmarks and monuments include the Mansion House, the Anna Livia monument, the Molly Malone statue.
