Dublin is famous for friendly locals, lively music, and, these days, a delicious foodie scene. You'll see why wherever you roam, from Temple Bar to the Creative Quarter, but be sure not to miss these 10 must-dos. They're Dublin originals you simply can't experience anywhere else.
The beloved 'pint of black stuff' is anything but ordinary. The stout has spread Dublin's fame across the globe, and you can see where it all began at the Guinness Storehouse. The Guinness story is a quintessentially Irish journey enlivened by colorful characters and the brand's iconic advertising.
Naturally, after immersing yourself in all things Guinness, you'll want to savor a pint. It's a long-standing debate which of Dublin's pubs serves the best pint of Guinness, but these days that title is highly contended by the brewery's own Gravity Bar, and the 360-degree rooftop view may be the city's finest as well. You can plan your next adventure from here, since you'll need to move on eventually. Guests are limited to only one free pint—otherwise it's possible that nobody would ever leave.
