Shopping

Grafton Street

One of the most popular shopping streets in Dublin, as well as one of the most expensive shopping streets in the world. However, its greatest treasure lies in its lively atmosphere, created in part by the beautiful historic houses that line it, and in part by the small vendors, street performers and stalls you will surely find here. The road was built over three centuries ago and takes its name from the Duke of Grafton, a fruit of an illegal affair of the English king. It connects St. Stephen's Green at one end and Trinity College Green at the other end. Almost every major brand has its headquarters here and the same applies to many of the most popular brands, such as Marks & Spencer or H & M. You can even visit a theater here or go to the hairdresser. The only thing missing is benches. So, if you want to take a break from the shopping spree, you'll have to settle for one of the many restaurants, cafés and fast food stalls that can also be found on Grafton Street.

Sightseeing

St. Patrick's Cathedral

Patrick Street, Dublin
Built in 1191 as a Roman Catholic church, this gothic cathedral is actually the largest church in Ireland. In 1870, it was rededicated to the Church of Ireland. It is said that Saint Patrick baptized people here. It is worth visiting both the imposing exterior and the beautiful interior, which feels more like a museum thanks to the many artefacts exhibited here. The stained glass windows and the engraved grave stones stand out particularly. If you see a tree in the cathedral, it was brought here to commemorate the victims of the First World War. The most famous dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral was the author of Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift. You can see some of his things here. You can even walk through the cathedral, use a free app, go on a guided tour or visit one of the services. If you buy the ticket and keep it, you can return on another day.

Christ Church Cathedral

6 Christchurch Place, Dublin
Christ Church Cathedral is not only the official seat of the Archbishop of Dublin, but also a great example of religious architecture. You might have seen it on the popular TV show The Tudors. The church, also called the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, was probably founded around 1030 by Dúnán, the first bishop of Dublin, and Sitruic. However, it is not the same church as we see today. The cathedral was first rebuilt in the 16th century and then again in the 19th century. The later reconstruction was in Victorian style, and this appearance still preserves the church today. The funds for the second round of church work, worth more than £ 2,000,000 today, were provided by one of the parishioners, Henry Roe. The cathedral has the largest cathedral crypt in Britain or Ireland, which was also rebuilt in the 12th century and is open to visitors. There is also a bell tower where, if you are lucky, you can ring the bells yourself.

Ha'Penny Bridge

If you're in Dublin, take a walk on this beautiful pedestrian bridge that spans the River Liffey. It was the first bridge built on this river, and it remained the only one for another 184 years. Today, it is estimated that more than 30 000 people pass it every day. The bridge was built in 1816 and was one of the first iron bridges in the world. It replaced an earlier existing ferry system. However, so that the former ferryman did not starve to death, every Dubliner had to pay him half a penny for having passed the newly built bridge. So the bridge got its name - Ha'penny Bridge. If you are lucky, visit the bridge, which is beautifully decorated. This happens on a variety of occasions as it is a popular place for locals to celebrate important anniversaries or to campaign for politicians.

Book of Kells

College Street, Dublin, IE
The Book of Kells is an illuminated Latin manuscript containing the four Gospels of the New Testament along with various previous texts and tables. It was founded in a columban monastery in the UK or Ireland and may have had contributions from various Columban institutions in the UK and Ireland. It is supposed to have arisen c. 800 AD. The text of the Gospels is largely taken from the Vulgate, but also contains some passages from the earlier versions of the Bible, known as Vetus Latina. It is a masterpiece of Western calligraphy and is the highlight of island illumination. It is also considered Ireland's most beautiful national treasure. The illustrations and ornaments of the Book of Kells surpass those of the other Insular Gospel books in extravagance and complexity. The decoration combines traditional Christian iconography with the decorated, swirling motifs that are typical of the island's art.
