    There is A LOT to see in this museum, so be preapred to spend a couple of hours! The peat presevred bodies were a particualr highlight - if slightly gruesome!

    We enjoyed a nice stroll through the peaceful park. Enjoyed the statues, birds, and plant life. Good place to relax amid the bustle of the city dynamics.

    We did not know what to expect other than it is a large park. Large is an understatement, it is bigger than the centre of Dublin, and it is beautiful! There are three herds of deer, that are tame too! There is a lovely lake, many flowerbeds, and plenty of pathways to walk. For anyone who has difficulty with walking there is not a lot of seating though. There is a wonderful hidden gem of a pub, called The Hole in the Wall too! Lots of wildlife to see on the way, along with the Presidents Palace and American Ambassador (both viewable from outside gates)
    We really enjoyed it here!

    We really enjoyed our visit to these gardens - there is so much to see and entry is free. It's a lovely location and is a very relaxing place. It was a 20-minute walk from the tram. Seating in the cafe is limited but there are quite a few benches outside,

    Informative and well-presented exhibition. Just the right size not to be overwhelming. Make sure you visit the lovely garden outside and the roof garden.

    Nice experience and a delight to see some impressionist work. I loved the portrait gallery with some great exhibits. The building is also very impressive

    We all know this is a expensive place but well worth a visit, great Irish music ( which was very lacking in other bars ) when we were there they also has a singer on. Guinness was lovely and the white wine was very good.

    If you like a bit of quality shopping, Grafton Street is the place to be. All the household names, designer brands & an upmarket department store. Don’t forget your credit card!

    As I walked past this evocative sculpture installation, my heart was so touched by the dispair and heartbreak that is displayed there. Each individual is depicted in heartbreakingly realistic poses and expressions. Take time to really look into the faces of these individuals; walk among them. Feel compassion and empathy.

    Really lovely museum with a lot of things to see! Spent a few hours looking around at all the different exhibits. Especially enjoyed the furniture/rooms part and the fashion bits. And best thing is it's completely free to see all of the amazing things in this museum! We chose the perfect day to go here because it was raining all day.

    Once more Barcelona has La Rambla, Berlin has Unter der Linden ... Dublin has O'Connell street ... the iconic street of Dublin.
    Stating at O'Connell bridge and the Daniel O'Connell monument at the the beginning of the street, a gathering point for people and popular meeting place.
    Also on the O'Connell street you shall find "the Spire" - a piece of art ? whatever... it is a 38 meter tall stainless steel column. (until the 1966 there stood the Nelson column that was blown up by republicans).
    Shops, restaurants , historical buildings ... you shall find those on O'Connell street.
    At the other end of the street you shall find the Parnell monument .... at the point where the trams turn.
    Overall it is the street to walk in Dublin when you feel like...

    It's a great statue. Easy to find. It's nothing that will take a great deal of time to see but worth seeing if you are in the area. It's very well done. You might also be treated to a street performance.

    A great experience for anyone interested in animals native to Ireland. Species were clearly labeled and arranged. I would have liked to go to the upper floor, but this section was blocked off due to renovations. Gift shop was small, but I managed to buy a few things.

    We wanted to visit the Square/Park to see the Oscar Wilde Memorial Sculpture.
    There is a very interesting opportunity to 'hear' Oscar Wilde via your mobile phone!
