Museum
“Booking your tickets 2 weeks in advance is strongly recommended! The jail symbolises the tradition of militant and constitutional nationalism from the rebellion of 1798 to the Irish Civil War of 1922-23. Leaders of the rebellions of 1798, 1803, 1848,1867 and 1916 were detained and in some cases executed here. Many members of the Irish Republican movement during the Anglo-Irish War (1919-21) were also detained in Kilmainham Gaol, guarded by British troops. Names such as Henry Joy McCracken, Robert Emmet, Anne Devlin, Charles Stewart Parnell and the leaders of 1916 will always be associated with the building. It should not be forgotten however that, as a county gaol, Kilmainham held thousands of ordinary men, women, and children. Their crimes ranged from petty offenses such as stealing food to more serious crimes such as murder or rape. Convicts from many parts of Ireland were held here for long periods waiting to be transported to Australia. Kilmainham Gaol Museum is operated and managed by the Office of Public Works.”

Government Building
“Perched on the site of a Danish Viking fortress from 930AD, and with its first stone cast by King John of England in 1230, Dublin Castle’s historical significance did not stop there. Under British rule from that point until 1921 (it was a key target during the 1916 Easter Rising), it has been a court, a fortress, even a site of execution in its time, and its architecture has evolved and grown with each metamorphasis. In truth, it feels more like a rambling campus than an actual castle – not many turrets in sight – but it’s the setting for every big state event, including presidential inaugurations. Wander the grounds, or take a guided tour to the state apartments, medieval undercroft and the Chapel Royal.”

Teater
“Ireland's National Theatre, The Abbey Theatre stages world class plays by Irish and international playwrights. If you're planning your trip in advance it's well work checking out the early bird tickets and previews; some tickets can be as cheap as €9! They also run free previews on certain shows- check out their website for details. The Peacock is also part of The Abbey but via a different entrance. If booking, make sure to know if it's The Abbey or The Peacock.”

Historisk plats
“Marsh’s Library, built by Archbishop Narcissus Marsh (1638-1713), was the first public library in Ireland and is one of the very few 18th century buildings left in Dublin that is still being used for its original purpose. The interior of the library, with its beautiful dark oak bookcases each with carved and lettered gables, topped by a mitre, and the three elegant wired alcoves or ‘cages’ where the readers were locked in with rare books, remains unchanged since it was built three hundred years ago. It is a magnificent example of a 17th century scholars’ library. Note: Marsh's Library is just around the corner from St. Patrick's Cathedral.”
