    Charming Dublin is a great place to make unforgettable memories and make new friends. So what is an absolute must-see in this beautiful capital city?

    We asked you over on our Facebook page for your top tips on what is unmissable in Dublin. Here's what you told us...





    Chat to the locals

    Ken Teach Aldridge says:

    Just make sure you make conversation with the locals. A most welcoming country. Dublin and all around is warm and sincerely friendly.

    Óla Bro says:

    Getting to know locals, they're just amazing people -- and beautiful parks, which are one of the best places in which to meet them.



    Take the DART out the seaside

    Jordi Bonet Garcia says:

    Howth.

    Cations Dels Esteva says:

    A visit to Howth.

    Macedonio Alcantara says:

    Howth!

    Eveliina Saks says:

    Take the train (DART) to Bray. Enjoy the scenery and have a lunch in a local pub.



    Visit Kilmainham Gaol

    Osvaldo Frías says:

    Kilmainham Gaol was a very pleasant surprise! Not to be missed.

    Cations Dels Esteva says:

    Kilmainham jail visit.

    Aleksandra Sklepi? says:

    Mary Christine Gavin says:

    The Kilmainham Gaol is amazing!

    Adam Joseph says:

    Live music at pubs

    Ana Oyarzabal says:

    Pubs with live music and beer. Perfect combination for an evening out.

    Tihana Blaževi? says:

    Heart-touching Irish music live in any of the pubs.

    Jamie Gee says:

    The open mics, songwriter and poetry nights. You meet so many wonderful and creative people there.

    Lisa R Bond says:

    Impromptu jam session in the pubs with a Guinness.

    Rebecca Pierpont says:

    Go to some little bar and share songs with the locals.



    Try 'Irish' food at Gallagher's Boxty House

    Chris Power says:

    Yummy Irish food at Gallaghers, Temple Bar. Try the boxty. Good to go with a friend and split the meal so you can try more things. The bread ice cream with Bailey's is a treat.

    Michaela Dods says:

    Gallaghers Boxty House in Temple Bar, amazing Irish pancakes and strong Irish coffees!

    Sole Traveller says:

    Gallagher's Boxty house. And of course, try their boxties (potato pancake filled with vegetables, meat and creamy sauce).



    Taste the black stuff at Guinness Storehouse

    Julieta Aires says:

    Guinness Storehouse!

    Piotrek Urbanek says:

    Guinness Storehouse.

    Paddy Chileno Errabundo says:

    Guinness Storehouse.

    Rebecca Heeney says:

    Rita Cruz says:

    Guinness.

    Gabi VG Oliveira says:

    Guinness!

    Shannon Patrick O'Connor says:

    Dublin! An awesome place for Irish and non-Irish alike! You must do the tour of the Guinness Storehouse! The best part of this tour is at the end where you can enjoy a free pint of Guinness on the roof in the Gravity Bar. This place gives you a 360-degree view over Dublin. I suggest that you try to go when it’s not raining so that you will have a better view of the city. If you want a second or third pint of Guinness, you won’t be able to get it up here, you’ll have to go downstairs to a bar below and bring it back up.

    Tasmin Allcroft says:

    Guinness Storehouse, of course!

    Mariano López Tajes says:

    Guiness Brewing, definitely.

    Breandán Ó Muirí says:

    The Guinness Storehouse!

    Pauline Susanto says:

    The Guinness Store House and Factory!

    Cindy Castilleja says:

    The Guinness Storehouse -- best view of the entire city!

    Jonny Blair says:

    You cannot miss the Gravity bar for a Guinness at a height and a fantastic view over the city of Dublin! It's at the top of the Guinness Storehouse.



    See the famous Book of Kells

    Michael We says:

    The library and the Book of Kells at Trinity College.

    Nelson Duarte says:

    Trinity College.

    Ane Barturen says:

    The old Library of Trinity College!



    Check out Ireland's oldest pub

    Shannon Patrick O'Connor says:

    The Brazen Head Pub, which is said to be Ireland’s oldest pub, is a great place for traditional Irish food and where the Guinness flows well.

    Jessika Curto says:

    Brazen Head on Sunday afternoons when they have some quality Irish music.

    Alexandra Kreuz Goldberg says:

    Have a glass of Blackmills at Ireland's oldest pub, The Brazen Head (founded 1198).
