Dun Laoghaire (Dublin), Ireland

For fans and followers of all the arts, as well as those passionate about cultural and political affairs, Dublin is a rich feast of historic sites and memorable associations. Stroll the gorgeous, Georgian grounds of Trinity College, or the lawns of St. Stephen’s Green, and literary allusions encircle you. Stand before ancient Christ Church Cathedral, or in the hushed, timeless aisles of Marsh’s Library. Towering Dublin Castle was the stronghold of the British for seven centuries, and the General Post Office gained notoriety and renown on the same day in the Easter Rising of 1916. Ireland is famous for thirsts other than for knowledge, however, and you are also invited to visit the Guinness Storehouse and the Old Jameson Distillery to taste the “water of life.”
