We are now on our third and final day here in Dublin. We have almost visited all the attractions here except for these three popular attractions. These require more time of staying since they are museums (1-2 hours).

The following attractions can be reached by taking Luas tram.

The Old Jameson Distillery

The Old Jameson Distillery in Smithfield Square is the original place where the Irish Whiskey, Jameson, was distilled from 1780 until 1971. It was opened as a tourist attraction in 1997. The tour simply explains the history of Jameson Irish Whiskey.

The ticket costs €14 and tour usually takes an hour plus a glass of Jameson Irish Whiskey at the end of the tour.

Guinness Storehouse

Guinness Storehouse is one of the most popular tourist attractions here in Dublin. Why? Well, this is just the place where the world famous Irish beer is made.

The Storehouse, located in the heart of the brewery, is a 7 storey building where tourists are welcomed to showcase the history of the world famous Guinness and its founder, Arthur Guinness.

On the seventh floor, there is a bar called Gravity Bar, where you can have a pint of Guinness which is included on your admission ticket while enjoying the spectacular view of Dublin.

National Museum of Ireland

To further know about the history of Ireland, visit the National Museum of Ireland with a collection of more than 400,000 items on Irish art, natural history and culture. The admission is free.

At the end of every holiday or vacation, we usually tend to go shopping for the last minute to buy souvenirs and gifts. As our 3 day trip in Dublin is finally over, why don’t we spend the remaining time in shopping? Go back to O’Connell Street where we can walk to Henry St. and Moore St. that are filled with shops and market.
