Home to the Black Stuff with the lovely white/cream top The Guinness Storehouse should be your number one choice of places to visit, the brewery site has been remodeled into the shape of a rather large pint of Guinness, the original distillery was built in 1759 and here you can learn the history of this popular brew and sample a glass from the Gravity Bar where you can sip your pint whilst enjoying a panoramic view over Dublin City. For families you can’t beat a day at the City Zoo in Phoenix Park with elephants, monkeys, red pandas, reptiles, hippos and bats. Art lovers can spend time at the National Gallery of Ireland, with over 2,500 paintings and 10,000 other works to include sketches, drawings, prints and sculptures. Visit Trinity College where you can see the book of Kells, written around the year 800 AD and is one of the most beautifully illuminated manuscripts in the world. Its 680 pages of vellum contain the Latin texts of the Four Gospels. It was written around 800AD by Irish monks and later buried in the ground for fear of the Vikings. After being eventually rediscovered, it was deposited for safe keeping in 1653. The National History Museum and the Science Gallery, St. Patricks Cathedral and the old Jameson distillery are more great places to visit.
