Teeling Distillery, Dublin
The Teeling Distillery was established in 2015 in Dublin. It is the first distillery to open in Dublin in 125 years. This is unusual given that Dublin was once the whiskey capital of the world. However the emergence of Scotch whiskey, and other factors, led to a decline in...
Botanic Gardens Dublin
Located in Dublin’s sleepy Glasnevin suburb, the National Botanic Gardens are one of the city’s real treasures. Every time I go I feel a real sense of refreshment leaving the Gardens.

Located in the Phoenix park, Dublin Zoo is brilliant for the kids as you can imagine but also great for the adults. Opening its doors in 1830, it's the second oldest Zoo in the world. Over the last number of years Dublin Zoo has expanded greatly (check out the...
With 1m people buried here you might think this is a pretty ghoulish thing to do but Glasnevin Cemetery is absolutely steeped in history so if that’s your thing then you need to get down there. There is a 10.30am walking tour (but check this out as it changes...
Dublin Castle, Ireland
We love Dublin Castle and its one of our top recommendations for you to do on any trip to Dublin. It’s located centrally about half way down Dame Street. Once the centre of British Rule it is now used by the Irish Government for state occasions after it was...
