In December 2013 I decided to visit Dublin, the capital of Ireland, without a doubt the most animated city and with more things to do in this country. The minimum stay is 2 days, it is a city to spend a weekend.
It is a perfect city to walk, without using any means of transport.
The best months to visit the city are the Summer months since the temperatures are very pleasant, the rains as in all of Ireland are present all year round so it is likely that one day it will rain.
These are the main places to visit in Dublin:
It is the most lively neighborhood of the city and where you can enjoy the famous Guinness beer in one of its pubs.
Highlights among all the pub with the name of the neighborhood the Temple Bar, with live music, great decoration and an immense variety of beers.
It is the main street of Dublin and one of the main commercial areas of the city.
The street also stands out for the numerous buildings and monuments that are in it, include the Central Post Office, The Spire and the statue of Daniel O'connell.
Founded in 1592 by Isabel I, it is the oldest university in the country.
Among all its buildings stands out the Library that has the largest collection in all of Ireland.
It owns more than 3 million books and is one of the essential visits. The price for visit the Library is € 11.
St. Patrick´s Cathedral
Built in honor of Ireland's patron Saint Patrick, it is the largest church in Ireland.
After numerous looting and abandonments, the current Cathedral was restored in 1860 thanks to Sir Benjamin Guinness.
The price for visiting the interior is € 6 and in you can see monuments commemorating important people in the history of Ireland.
Former Customs House of the city, today houses the Ministry of the Environment.
Located on the banks of the River Liffey, its facade decorated with coats of arms and sculptures that represent the Irish rivers.

Located in the Merrion Square Park, in the center of the city, it was previously a private park that today houses many sculptures.
The park is surrounded by Georgian houses and important buildings such as the National Gallery or the Museum of Natural History.
Emphasizes the statue of Oscar Wilde who was an Irish poet and writer.
Today it is the best-known beer museum in Ireland, previously it was the place where it was fermented until 1988.
The museum can be visited from € 17.50 and after visiting its history at the end of the tour on the fifth floor you will reach a bar with magnificent views in which you can enjoy a Guinness.
Ireland is a special country in terms of sports, its main sports are Gaelic football and hurling. They are also one of the world powers in rugby and have also reached final stages in football.

It is the main stadium of the Rugby national team and the football national team.
It was the venue for the 2011 Europa League final.
It emphasizes the wavy form of the roof that gives it a unique format in the world.
