welcome to our blog!
Welcome to our Love Ireland blog. We want you to get the best out of Ireland, what we consider to be the best little country in the world. Come with us as we explore the hot spots, the food, the culture and above all the craic!
Be sure to check out all the basement has to offer. If you are looking for a place to be spooked on All-Hallows-Eve then the dungeons of the Wax Museum is the place to be. It sure isn’t for the faint of heart.
Stop on into the Dublin Visitor Center, 17 Lower O’Connell Street, and ask for their 10% discount card for the Wax Museum while they are available. If you are in Dublin for Culture Night which occurs annually on or around September 22 entrance is free. Enjoy!
If you are wondering what to do when you are with your family in Dublin, this Fair City offers a great variety of activities and attractions to keep you entertained.
In addition to the most visited attractions like the Guinness Storehouse, Grafton Street and Trinity College, there are other great visitor attractions that don’t have hundreds of people queuing where you still get a taste of real Dublin. One of these visitor attractions that’s no so well known, but truly very interesting and well worth a visit is the Little Museum of Dublin.
The Little Museum tells the remarkable story of Dublin in the 20th Century. The museum was launched in 2011 with a public appeal for historic objects. The response to that appeal illustrates the generosity of the Irish people: today there are over 5,000 artefacts in the collection.
Named as “Dublin’s best museum experience” by the Irish Times, the Little Museum has been nominated for the European Museum of the Year Awards and has just been granted full charitable status. Children attend free civics classes here every morning, and their greeter programme, City of a Thousand Welcomes, has been described by the Sydney Morning Herald as “the best free thing to do in Europe.”
The Etihad Skyline rooftop tour at Croke Park offers great views of Dublin with its 5 viewing platforms, 17 stories high. This is an activity that shouldn’t be missed.
If you feel like going on a City Tour, City Sightseeing Dublin (red hop on hop off buses) is your answer to see the whole city from the comfort of the bus. A Great benefit in using this service, is that the kids go free and you will get 10% off City Sightseeing Worldwide tickets, should you travel in other European metropoles.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s go and explore!
The Mercantile is situated in the heart of Dublin City. It is the perfect place to end the night as they stay open till late, it is a fun place to go dancing and it is not too fancy. It has a cool salon where you can watch a band playing music and downstairs it is a Latin place where people enjoy dancing salsa after 10pm. It has great atmosphere, excellent food and great staff. I would highly recommend anyone to visit the Mercantile; I really enjoyed my experience and would go back!
Mercantile is situated near City Sightseeing bus stop 9.
