Where Is Dublin, Ireland?

Ireland’s capital of Dublin is the largest Irish city, situated on the mouth of the River Liffey in Leinster, within the east-central region of the country. Bordered by the Dublin Mountains to the south, and flat farmland to the north and west, Dublin is both an amalgamation of country and city.

What Is Dublin, Ireland Known For?

Popular Attractions in Dublin, Ireland

  • The Little Museum of Dublin: A civic people’s museum, The Little Museum of Dublin chronicles the history of the city and its inhabitants during the 20th century. The museum offers visitors personal and detailed glimpses into the everyday life of Dubliners during the 20th century, including exhibitions on the 1916 Easter Rising, John F. Kennedy’s historic visit, and other events in Irish political and social history. Described as the “best museum experience in Dublin,” The Little Museum of Dublin may be little, but its influence is anything but that.
  • Jameson Distillery Bow Street: A glass of Jameson and soda is probably a drink order that every bartender in the world has heard in their career. Visit the home of the famous Jameson Irish Whiskey by visiting the Jameson Distillery Bow Street. The now-defunct distillery was the original site where the alcohol was distilled until 1971. Visitors can embark on a fully-guided tasting tour and learn about the heritage and processes of Ireland’s best-selling whiskey. Tour experiences will come to a nice end in the JJ Bar where you can have a complimentary tipple and chill with friends. You can also choose to try out a whiskey blending masterclass, whiskey cocktail masterclass, or a 40-minute tasting session of Bow Street’s favorite whiskeys.
  • Kilmainham Gaol: A former prison, Kilmainham Gaol is now an open museum that displays the harrowing history of the country. The building is representative of the militant and constitutional Irish nationalism that is written in the history books. During the Anglo-Irish war, several Irish revolutionaries of the Irish Republican Movement were imprisoned here and later executed by the British. As a county jail, ordinary men, women, and children were also detained here with sentences for crimes ranging from petty to serious offences. The prison closed in 1924 and the museum opened in 1971. As an absolute must-see for history aficionados, tourists can embark on a 45 to 60 minute tour with a knowledgeable guide who will inform you about the terrible treatment of inmates, the history and politics during the operation of the prison, and subsequent closure and restoration of the current museum.
