This may not be an official castle since there’s no drawbridge or turrets; but this was formerly the seat of British power in Ireland. You can tour the 18th century buildings. State functions and occasional performances are held inside. Outside, you can tour the Dubh Linn Gardens for free.

You may not think of seaside villages or the ocean when you are planning a trip to Dublin, but Dublin has very enchanting seaside villages just a short ride from the city centre. You can ride the DART from the city and spend a relaxing afternoon and/or evening by the sea. The villages have walks, street food, cafes, and more. If you would like to see the city from a different view, you can always opt for a quite 90 minute cruise of Dublin Bay, which takes you from Howth to Dun Laoghain sailing center. Soak up the sea breeze, islands off the coast and lookout for dolphins playing alongside the boat.
The Old Jameson Distillery or the Guinness Storehouse

Neither the Guinness Storehouse nor the Old Jameson Distillery is still a producing factory; but they are both open for tours. The Guinness Storehouse is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Dublin. When you take the tour there, you get an insiders’ view into the history and process behind Ireland’s most famous stout beer. The tour includes a short film and a self-guided tour through the brewery where guests 18 and older can sample a complimentary taste of Guinness. At the Jameson Distillery, you can learn how the “water of life” is made even though they don’t make it at the historic distillery anymore. It is a fun and interesting way to spend part of your afternoon in Dublin.

If you are into the gothic architecture and cobblestone streets and want to see an important piece of Ireland’s history, then a tour of Trinity College is in order. Sunday morning is an excellent time to visit and hear the church tower bells ring and see the campus before most students are awake. However, during the summer, you can take a 30 minute guided tour from students. The college is the oldest in Ireland and was founded by Queen Elizabeth I in 1592. Oddly enough, women were not admitted as students until 1904. One of the main attractions to the college is reading the Book of Kells in the Old Library.
