The Little Museum of Dublin
What’s a trip to the Emerald Isle without a little history lesson? That’s what this museum provides — quite literally. The Little Museum of Dublin is just a few minutes away from Fusilier’s Arch, and even if you’re not a history buff, you’ll enjoy being immersed in the experiences of how people of Dublin live their everyday lives. The museum opened in 2011, and now, it’s home to countless art and history-related artifacts.
“The museum has gone from strength to strength and now hosts an array of temporary exhibitions and events as well as permanent installations, including a U2 retrospective with exhibits donated by band members. Other treats include the lectern used by John F. Kennedy when he addressed both houses of the Irish Parliament (Oireachtas) in June 1963,” writes Andrew Birbeck on PlanetWare.
Christ Church Cathedral
Finally, it should come as no surprise that Catholicism remains the dominant religion in Ireland at 84%. With that in mind, you can experience some truly incredible architecture inside some of Ireland’s most historic churches, like this one. It was restored in the 19th century and built on the same site as Dublin’s first ever church.
While these attractions are all appealing and full of culture, taking a chauffeur tour in Ireland can provide some of the most memorable sights and architecture you’ve ever seen.
