County Dublin: Where Viking History Meets Modern Marvels

County Dublin boasts a fascinating history that goes back over a thousand years. Much of this destination’s past is characterised by Viking invasions that began as early as 837 A.D. Remnants of Viking settlements were unearthed beginning in 1961, but until then, historians thought this destination sat on a peat bog. Because so many people come to this part of Ireland, the region offers numerous hotels, restaurants and attractions that prove how this place combines historical significance with up-to-date perks.

Go on a Pub Crawl

You'll never have to look too far to spot a welcoming local watering hole. The cobblestoned streets of the Temple Bar district are an exciting place to begin an unforgettable pub crawl. Many visitors come to Temple Bar directly from their hotels, eager to experience Irish hospitality. Pubs regularly schedule live music and strategically keep doors and windows open when weather allows, so passers-by hear musicians and get enticed to stop in and hear tunes while sipping pints. Complement your beers with hearty hot food from one of Temple Bar's popular dining spots. Many establishments post menus outside so you can see what's on offer before going inside. Outside of Temple Bar, don't miss The Brazen Head. Established in 1198, it's officially the oldest pub in County Dublin and has become known as an excellent place to hear live music. If you're in the mood to have a full evening of entertainment, beers and good company, this is a lovely place to pass the time.

Spend Time On or Along the Water

You'll soon realise the River Liffey serves as a fine landmark if you're trying to get your bearings. Plus, County Dublin offers many ways to enjoy the water, whether you're up for a boat excursion or want to stroll along the shore while enjoying an Irish beach. Think about taking a 75-minute cruise along Dublin Bay. During the trip, you'll see landmarks such as the James Joyce Tower, where the famous author once spent six nights. Dalkey Island is another must-see attraction along the bay. Look carefully and you may even spot grey seals. Many visitors choose to venture away from their city centre hotels for a while and spend time in Howth, a quiet coastal village that's easy to reach and offers a refreshing break from the busy streets you'll find in nearby areas. When you’re ready to stretch your legs, embark on the Howth Head Walk, a looped trail that has been mentioned within Irish literature.

Trace Your Irish Roots

Understand more about your family tree by visiting some of the genealogy-related points of interest. Begin at the appropriately named Irish Family History Centre, located in Dublin's North Dock area. This facility offers access to the most complete collection of Irish personal documents, ranging from birth and death certificates to parish records. During your time at this County Dublin point of interest, have a 15-minute consultation with a genealogy expert, and learn about Irish heritage by interacting with themed exhibits. If someone you know is fascinated with their Irish roots too, buy them something from the shop, which features DNA kits, books and more. Perhaps you've already done preliminary research and discovered your ancestors came from the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown area. In that case, make your way to the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Heritage Society. It offers a comprehensive database of over 145,000 records. Besides helping guests learn about their heritage, this society provides attraction tips for people who want to explore before going back to their hotels.

Feel Grafton Street’s Energy

Although the Grafton Street area isn't huge, there's plenty to do. Located near Trinity College, it’s a pedestrian district filled with shops and restaurants, so Grafton Street is almost always a hub of activity. Listen to the sounds of street musicians, watch as sidewalk artists draw chalk creations and give a coin to one of the “human statues” to make it suddenly come to life. Grafton Street also usually features fresh flower vendors, so people who want to bring some fragrant blooms back to their hotels have beautiful bouquets to buy. This is also a place that has well-known chain restaurants, in case you're experiencing culture shock and want familiar food. Both Burger King and McDonald's have locations along Grafton Street, and there's a T.G.I. Friday's at the far end, near St. Stephen's Green Park. Looking for a Grafton Street treat to mark your County Dublin trip? Go to R & C McCormack, a jewellery store that has operated since the 1960s and specialises in Celtic pieces, like claddagh rings.
