Simply read on…
Christ Church Cathedral
Our lovely neighbours across the road are opening their doors to DoDublin Days Out Card holders. The spiritual heart of Dublin for over 1,000 years, Christ Church was founded in 1028 in Viking Dublin. Today it is one of Dublin’s top tourist attractions as well as the city’s oldest working structure. Inside, the nave and crypt tell not only the story of the building and church itself, but also the social history of Dublin as it developed around the cathedral for centuries. The incredible bells, the beautiful labyrinth in the garden, not to mention the famous mummified cat and rat found in the depths of the crypt, make for a great stop on your tour of Dublin.
Museum of Literature Ireland
Have you visited MoLI yet? If not, make sure to add it to your list. Housed in the beautiful Newman House on Stephens Green MoLI tells the story of Ireland’s rich literary past. Situated at the heart of the city, they showcase items from the National Library of Ireland alongside cutting edge immersive exhibitions, right next to their peaceful garden full of birdsong and benches where you can sit and listen to it – what’s not to love! This is a truly fascinating museum which should be on everyone’s itinerary visiting the city.
Little Museum Dublin
The Little Museum is a gem among Dublin’s cultural attractions. Dedicated solely to the history of the capital, its entire collection is made up of donations from Dublin’s residents down through the years giving a truly first hand account of what it’s like to be a Dubliner. Famous for their unique tours of the city, their exhibitions on everything from U2 to Mrs Brown’s Boys, and stories about everyone from James Joyce to John F Kennedy, really does mean the Little Museum is a unique attraction and a great thing for families to do in Dublin!
Ireland is famous for its diaspora stretching far and wide across the globe. Epic, The Irish Emigration Museum, is the place to go to learn what it means to say ‘I’m Irish’. From fields as extensive and varied as science, politics and sports, Epic charts the story of millions of Irish people who left this island, setting up home on foreign lands and the staggering impact some of those men and women have had on building the modern world as we know it. Using state of the art digital exhibitions, Epic is an immersive visitor experience that takes you on a fascinating journey through history – as well as their incredible underground passages! It is also a wonderful reason to get out and explore Dublin’s Docklands, making it a really great day out for all.
St Patrick’s Cathedral
Since the time of St Patrick almost 1500 years ago, there has been a church or cathedral on this historic site at the heart of Medieval Dublin. So as you can imagine, it has many a story to tell! The story goes, the saying ‘to chance your arm’ comes from a feud which took place within the cathedral walls and Jonathan Swift, the famous author of Gulliver’s Travels, is buried here as well. Having stood tall in the city for over 1,000 years a visit to St Patrick’s cathedral offers an incredible insight into the history of Dublin itself.
So, there you have it, the DoDublin Day Out Card is a fantastic opportunity to create a fascinating and fun itinerary in the centre of the city for you and your family! Tickets are available to purchase here. The tickets are valid until the 31st March 2022 so get yours now and you will have plenty of time to explore what Dublin city has to offer!
