E32***16A lovely journey through the historical and precise process of this iconic beer (stout). Great value for money if you really take in what the guide has to say. And the skybar at the end is fantastic with 360 degree views of such a cool city! Highly recommend!

You won’t find leprechauns or pots of gold here, but you’ll discover that what it means to be Irish expands far beyond the borders of Ireland through the stories of Irish emigrants who became scientists, politicians, poets, artists and even outlaws all over the world. Discover Ireland from the outside in and find out why saying “I’m Irish” is one of the biggest conversation starters, no matter where you are.
➖ Address - Custom House Quay, Dublin 1
Open 7 days a week: 10:00am – 6:45pm
➖ Highlights - At EPIC they honour Irish emigrants by telling their stories and keeping their memories alive. It’s a place where you can come to acknowledge them, their journeys, their struggles and their achievements.
When they left Ireland they took something very important with them, something that would give them strength, their identity, their power to change the world and something they would pass on to you – their name.
They invite you to be a part of our The Power of a Name exhibition by adding your emigrant family member's name to the Legacy Wall. Simply give them their name, where they emigrated from and the year they left. They will project it onto the wall of EPIC and it will become part of the exhibition.
You will also have a chance to purchase a personalised genealogy consultation with the Irish Family History Centre.
➖ Rating - 5 ⭐️/5

Getting There - Dublin airport is a hub, so you’ll easily find a cheap flight from many countries. To arrive from the airport into town? there’s plenty of buses or taxi. The Dublin express is probably the fastest as it goes through the tunnel, you’ll be in the city centre in only 30 minutes (buy the ticket online as it’s cheaper).
Once in the city centre, you can just go anywhere by walking. The world is at your feet.
Attractions - There’s plenty to do in Dublin. I personally suggest to go to EPIC (The Irish Emigration Museum), it’s really a fantastic experience, especially if you have Irish ancestors. You’ll discover that what it means to be Irish expands far beyond the borders of Ireland through the stories of Irish emigrants who became scientists, politicians, poets, artists and even outlaws all over the world.
Trinity college and The Book of Kells is another great experience.
If you have time go the National Gallery of Ireland. It’s free, open 7days a week and has many great paintings.
Hotels - There’s many nice hotels in Dublin, but if you value your sleep don’t choose one in the Temple bar area.
Food & Restaurants - The restaurant and cafe scene has really stepped up in Dublin. Walk around the city centre, avoid the tourists’ traps and you’ll be fine.
Shopping - Grafton street is one of the areas where you can start your shopping. Just make sure you have enough room in your luggage. 😂

Beloved by Dubliners and with a colorful history, serene St Stephen's Green is a great place to relax, enjoy a picnic or feed the ducks. Incidentally, during the 1916 Rebellion, special dispensations were granted on both sides of the park rangers. Hostilities stopped daily so that the ducks could be properly fed. It can only happen in Dublin. Today 'The Green', as it is known locally, boasts a beautifully maintained garden, the ubiquitous Duck Pond, a beautiful bridge, recreation areas, mature trees to rest under, and a playground. Surrounding it are Dublin's main Georgian buildings as well as the iconic Shelbourne Hotel, founded in 1824, where afternoon tea in the Lord Mayor's Lounge is considered by many to be a real treat.
The Little Museum of Dublin is a fabulous place for families to visit, whether you are a tourist visiting Dublin or a local resident looking for an educational day out. The museum is situated in a Georgian townhouse right in the centre of Dublin city. The collection on display includes art, photography, advertising, letters, postcards, and objects relating to cultural, social and political life in Dublin between the years 1900 and 2000. The collection is mostly comprised of donations and loans from the people of Dublin, so the museum really is a people’s museum!
The Little Museum of Dublin tells the story of Dublin city from 1900 up to 2000 and showcases the remarkable transformation that the city went through in the last century. Visitors to the museum will witness the violent birth of the Irish nation, the conservative years that followed the false economic hope of the 1960s and the Celtic Tiger boom of the 1990s.
The museum has many artifact’s that attract all kinds of people, from an unopened bottle of lemonade from 1918, The first English edition of Ulysses, a James Joyce death mask, to the old Tram seat from the 1940s
Featured in many rebel songs and occupying a very dark place in Irish history, Kilmainham Gaol should top the list for those interested in Ireland's troubled past. It was here that the leaders of the 1916 Rebellion were brought in and, after being convicted of the High Treason, executed in the prison yard. The only one spared was future Irish President Eamon De Valera who, by virtue of his American citizenship, did not suffer the same dire fate. Dating back to 1796, the prison is a vile and mushy institution that places people guilty of such offenses for not being able to pay their train fare and, during famine, the poor and hungry. In Irish eyes, Kilmainham became an irrevocable symbol of oppression and persecution. A visit here will open your eyes and senses and stay with you indelibly. The previously mentioned courtyard was terrifying. In short, this is one of Ireland's absolute musts. #oldarchitecture
Grafton Street is lively with buskers, florists, and performing artists. You'll also find countless places to stop and just watch the world meander by. Cafe culture has gone in the capital, and on a sunny day, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in Barcelona or Lisbon. True, this is Dublin's shopping hub, but it's not worth spending a fortune to visit. You'll find friendly, fun service wherever you go and entertained from the ground up to St Stephen's Green Street above. Grab a coffee or, in the morning, a legendary Irish breakfast at Bewley's Oriental Café. Also take the time to knock down the many alleys and streets to see what you can find.
🍀Nature - I was not aware of how green Dublin as a city would be. dotted with greens spaces and large parks Dublin has an abundance of nice green places. Check out St.Stephen’s park, mount Jerome and Phoenix Park. definitly plan half a day for the latter because phoenix park is huge!
🍺 Irish Bars - hope to the Irish Bar, make sure to check them out. Temple bar is a very famous one always flocked with tourists. Around the same area you will find more local establishments to get the feel for the real Dublin culture. The Guineas factory is also located downtown so reserve a couple of hours to check it out.
🎓 Heritage - Trinity college Dublin is a very popular University and includes some beautiful classical buildings on campus. the campus grounds are definitely worth checking out and the library as-well. Beware the wait times are pretty long so get in early to avoid the crowds. 🙂
Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland. Situated on a bay on the east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey, it lies within the province of Leinster. It is bordered on the south by the Dublin Mountains, a part of the Wicklow Mountains range. It has an urban area population of 1,173,179, while the population of the Dublin Region (formerly County Dublin) as of 2016 was 1,347,359. The population of the Greater Dublin Area was 1,904,806 per the 2016 census.
There is archaeological debate regarding precisely where Dublin was established by the Gaels in or before the 7th century AD. Later expanded as a Viking settlement, the Kingdom of Dublin, the city became Ireland's principal settlement following the Norman invasion. The city expanded rapidly from the 17th century and was briefly the second largest city in the British Empire after the Acts of Union in 1800. Following the partition of Ireland in 1922, Dublin became the capital of the Irish Free State, later renamed Ireland.
