The best attractions Dublin has to offer

Seemingly on everyone’s list of things to do, the Guinness Storehouse is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Dublin. And why? Well obviously Guinness is synonymous with Dublin and Irish people like a drink, right? The problem with the storehouse is that it’s now akin to an...
