Best places to see in Ireland

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.

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.
Accommodations near Temple Bar
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.
Accommodations near Spanish Arch
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!
Accommodations near Eyre Square
Croke Park Stadium
Stadiums or 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.
Accommodations near Croke Park Stadium
St. Patrick's Cathedral
It’s Ireland’s largest church with a 43-metre high spire. And that’s not its only claim to fame: the satirist, Jonathan Swift, author of “Gulliver’s Travels”, was Dean here from 1713 to 1745. Built in the Gothic style, it was completed in 1191, though the Lady Chapel was added around 1270. For the perfect acoustic treat, take time out to listen to some organ music here.
