So this week we are excited to be exploring Dublin and we are planning to spend a whole week here. This video will highlight 25 things to do in the city. Dublin is where most trips in Ireland begin, so before seeing the rest of the country, Audrey and I spent a whole week getting to know the capital. When the weather cooperated we walked through the city, toured Trinity College, and visited the botanical gardens, and when it rains like it does in this part of the world, we popped into a pub for some Irish stew and a pint of Guinness. Video will show you some of the different things to do in Dublin, Ireland.

25 things to do in Dublin Ireland | Best Attractions Travel Guide Video Transcript:
Trinity College was founded in 1592 and is the oldest university in Ireland. The campus is open to visitors interested in touring the grounds, and also gets to hear some fascinating stories of famous students, including Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift and Bram Stoker.
The Guinness Storehouse is the most popular attraction in Dublin, and is a must see for beer lovers. The Storehouse covers seven floors surrounding a glass atrium in the shape of a pint of Guinness. Inside you will also find a copy of the 9,000-year contract signed by Arthur Guinness on the brewery site – they will not go anywhere for a while!
Grafton Street is one of the main shopping areas of Dublin. You're likely to find a lot of musicians, neighborhood musicians and artists around here, as well as having a good view of The Spire.
Before the establishment of the Glasnevin Cemetery, Irish Catholics had no place to bury their dead. This cemetery gave Irish Catholics and Protestants a place where they could give their dead a worthy tomb, and since then it has become the resting place of people of all religions and non-religions.
Experience Gaelic Games is a place where you can come and try traditional Irish sports like hurling and Gaelic football.
The former Jameson Distillery is the original site where Irish Jameson whiskey was distilled until 1971. It is now a visitor center offering guided tours and whiskey tastings.
Temple Bar is an area known for its lively nightlife. Situated on the south bank of the River Liffey, you will find all kinds of pubs playing live music once the sun goes down. There is also a pub in Temple Bar, called The Temple Bar, but do not let that confuse you.
