Here is a list of my favorite places in Dublin:
1. St. Stephen Green(click to know more)
Located at the Top of Grafton Street is a beautiful city park. The Fusilier's Arch marks the main entrance into St. Stephen's Green. It is truly a gem of the city! An oasis away from city life, located within the city center.
2. Trinity College (click to know more)
Just a stone throw away from St Stephen Green lies the Trinity College. It is the oldest university in Ireland, founded by England’s Queen Elizabeth I in 1592. See the "Books of Kells" here.

4. O'Neill's Pub (click to know more)

It is situated in the historic heart of Dublin, a stone throw away from almost all attractions around: Trinity College, Grafton Street, Temple bar…. It is fairly easy to find.
5. Temple Bar
A leisure stroll through the famous Temple Bar is a must! Although I myself do not recommend dining or having a drink there because I think they are overpriced.
6. Guinness Storehouse (click to know more)
7. Dublin Castle (click to know more)

9. A walk Through the Bridges to the new town
The River Liffey, which flows into the harbor, divides Dublin into two. There are a number of bridges connecting the north-south divide. Simply walk any bridge to admire the view.
Bridges include: O'Connell, Ha'Penny, Samuel Beckett, etc.

10. Kilmainham Gaol (click to know more)
Kilmainham truly is an important site that tells the story of Irish independence, therefore this is considered a MUST for all history buff!
There is a lot more to experience in Dublin. If you are unsure, drop by the “The Discover Ireland Centre” on Suffolk Street! Dubliners are one of the friendliest people in the world, I am sure they will have some good suggestions to suit your preference.
