Favourites in Dublin

Some of our favourites in Dublin include staying in the Georgian district in the heart of Dublin.  A smaller city than many expect, Dublin is easily walk able and the history is everywhere.  I like walking in St.Stephen’s Green where the locals wander during lunch break or after work is over.  One can see families feeding the ducks and the classic scenes of a park perched in the middle of a city.  Trinity College, known for its excellence, is keeper of The Book of Kells.  Completed in 800 AD, the Book of Kells is the world's most famous and oldest book.  It is Ireland's most lavish and glorious illuminated manuscript. The book is an exquisite copy of the first four gospels in Latin. ... It is the most elaborate manuscript of its kind to survive from the early Middle Ages. The Gaiety Theatre is a classic Victorian theatre built in 1871 and Dublin’s oldest continuing theatre.  The Little Museum, located in an 18th-century Georgian town house owned by Dublin City Council chronicling the life of the Irish, is truly a gem. Butler's Chocolate Cafe is another Dublin favourite.
