Dublin is ideal for exploring on foot, within 15 minutes you can stroll from St. Stephen's Green down the pedestrianised Grafton street, past Trinity College, through the Temple Bar, across the ha' penny bridge and onwards to O'Connell street, where the 1916 Nationalist uprising began. In fact several good walking tours exist, such as the writers historic tour and a 'Rock n stroll' tour.

Founded in 1592, Trinity College Dublin is the oldest university in Ireland. The university has about 10,000 students and the campus boasts many unique buildings, the most interesting of which are the Printing House, dating back to 1740, and the Dining Hall. One of the major attractions is the Book of Kells, which contains a Latin text of the four gospels decorated by Irish monks in the year 800 AD.

Dublin Castle was built in the early 13th century and was the centre of British power in Ireland for more than seven centuries. The castle has a magnificent 13th century Record Tower, the gothic Chapel Royal, as well as the State Apartments, which used to be the residence of the English viceroy. The Undercroft is an excavation of an old Viking fortress within the grounds of the castle.

In the oldest part of city stands Christ Church Cathedral. A wooden church was built on the current site in 1038 for Sitric Silkenbeard, the Viking king of Dublin. The current structure was began in 1169 during the Norman invasion, under the direction of the Norman knight Robert de Clare or Strongbow. As the principal Protestant church in Ireland, Christ Church was home to some significant events, such as the 1487 coronation of Edward VI. The crypt below the cathedral is one of the largest in Britain and Ireland.

The National Gallery of Ireland houses Ireland's national art collection, as well as a collection of European art spanning from the 14th to the 20th century. The highlight of the Irish collection is a room dedicated to the works of Jack B. Yeats, brother of the poet W. B. Yeats. For a good perspective on the city's history, visit the Dublinia exhibition beside Christchurch.

By night Dublin is legendary, as the Temple Bar district comes alive with copiously flowing Guinness on tap and the distinctive sound of 'Diddle Aye' music.
