I can’t believe it has been four years since I last visited Dublin. The time sure has flown. Dublin is one of my favorite cities, and when I visit, I always feel at home. Everyone is so friendly and willing to help out with directions if you ever get lost. The places I enjoyed visiting in Dublin were the Guinness Storehouse, seeing Celtic Nights at the Arlington hotel, doing a Hop on Hop off bus tour, Dublin zoo, and the Jameson Distillery. First, the Guinness Storehouse is Dublin’s most visited attraction. The inside is the shape of a pint glass consisting of seven floors. It is hard to believe that it’s only made with four ingredients which include water, barley, hops, and yeast. Secondly, Celtic Nights is one of the best dinner shows in Dublin and runs seven nights a week. The singers and dancers love getting the audience involved throughout the show. It is also recommended to customers that they book early because seating does go quickly. By day three, when your feet hurt a little, the bus tour is a great way to learn about the history of Dublin while enjoying the Irish scenery and the main attractions around Dublin. Some of the places that the bus tour visits include the Guinness Storehouse, Jameson Distillery, Christ Church Cathedral, Dublina, Dublin Castle, Dublin Zoo, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The Dublin zoo is a great kid friendly activity. They house up to 400 animals including the endangered ones such as the grey wolf, Asian lion, Asian elephant, African painted dog, and the Amur tiger. Finally, the Jameson distillery allows tourists to take a tour throughout the distillery allowing them to learn the history of the whiskey, how it’s made, and the comparison between two other whiskeys. During my time in Dublin, I truly enjoyed everything I did, but the Guinness Storehouse and the Celtic Nights had to be my favorite. The weather was often sunny in the morning, and then turned cool with a drizzle in the evening. So, be sure to dress appropriately for the chilly rain. I definitely look forward to going back soon!

Dublin Zoo

If you’re in Dublin looking for a kid friendly activity, I highly recommend the Dublin Zoo. The Dublin Zoo is located in Phoenix Park and is one of Dublin’s favorite attractions. It houses up to 400 animals including some endangered species. Some of the animals include elephants, lions, tigers, flamingos, sea lions, penguins, giraffes, and grey wolves. The elephants were eating lunch as the adorable baby elephants stayed close to their moms. My favorite animal exhibits were the sea lions and the penguins. The sea lions loved showing off to the crowd by swimming towards us as we watched them through the glass, while they were playing and making noises. I remember when I was talking, the sea lion swam over and seemed to stick his tongue out at me as he swam by under the water. While visiting the penguin exhibit, the penguins would follow the little kids walking back and forth along the glass fence. I added a short video below for your enjoyment.
