Guinness is the drink of the Irish so, while you are in Ireland it would be remiss not to venture to the place it is made. Over a century old, the Guinness Storehouse building was designed and constructed to house the Guinness fermentation process. You can visit the retail store, have a virtual step by step tour through the process, view the history of Guinness advertising, challenge your own drinking habits at the interactive exhibition and learn to pour your own pint of Guinness. You even get a certificate to prove you have mastered the art!
Temple Bar is where some of Dublin’s best night clubs, restaurants and unusual shops are located in this cobbled, historic area of Dublin. Running from the Bank of Ireland to Christ Church Cathedral, this area has plenty to offer anyone wanting to get a true taste of Dublin in the limited time allowed by a layover.
Dublin Walking Tour
Dublin’s history is evident all around the city and there are plenty of art, culture, architecture and history guided tours that will lead you through the city showing you the best of all of them. History graduates from Trinity College will take you on a two hour guided walk, exploring the main features of the city's history and visiting places such as Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Old Parliament House, Temple Bar and much more.
As always, make sure you leave plenty of time to get back to the Dublin Airport in time for your connection and enjoy your layover city rather than whiling away the time leaning up against your luggage in the departures lounge.
