Best places to see in Ireland

Spanish Arch
Under the oligarchy of its merchant Tribes, Galway prospered as a result of trade with Europe. In 1584, the city walls were extended to guard against looting – this arch is all that remains of the fortifications. Today, you’ll still hear foreign accents by the banks of the Corrib. Here, English-language students, tourists and natives mingle over an ice cream on sunny days.
Accommodation near Spanish Arch
Dublin Castle
There’s been an occupied castle on the same site in the city centre since 1204 AD – so imagine how much history it’s seen! The nucleus of British rule in Ireland until 1922, it now hosts state dinners and international conferences. The lavish “state apartments” are open to the public by guided tour. You might even recognise them as the backdrops of some major movies.
Accommodation near Dublin Castle
Eyre Square
The flags of the fourteen Tribes of Galway fly over grassy Eyre Square. The Brownes were one such merchant family – see the original doorway of their early 17th-century mansion on the northern edge. Surrounded by pubs and cafés, the green’s a classic meeting spot. Families, friends and flocks of students gather here on sun-kissed afternoons – yes, they happen occasionally!
Accommodation near Eyre Square
Temple Bar
Popular areas
Trip across the River Liffey on the delightful Ha’penny Bridge to Temple Bar – Dublin’s cultural nerve centre. Spot the brightest star in Ireland’s galaxy of contemporary artists at the Project Arts Centre; tap your foot along with the catchiest traditional tune at the TradFest; and press your nose against shop windows where you can buy just about anything under the sun.
Accommodation near Temple Bar
Croke Park Stadium
Stadiums and arenas
Ireland’s dynamic national games are Gaelic football and hurling. And the home of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) is Croke Park in the suburb of Drumcondra. After an enormous €260-million redevelopment, it’s now Europe’s fourth-largest stadium with a capacity of more than 80,000. It’s also a major music venue, hosting bands such as U2, The Script and One Direction.
Accommodation near Croke Park Stadium
General Post Office (GPO)
Well, you can buy stamps at Dublin’s General Post Office (universally known as the GPO), but this landmark is better known for the more bloodthirsty fact that it was here, in Easter 1916, that republican rebels faced the might of the British Army. You can’t miss its magnificent Greek-style portico. The three statues are Mercury, Hibernia and Fidelity.
