The sights of Dublin

Some visitors expect Dublin to be one giant pub crawl, but there's plenty to do between pints, from ogling the illuminated pages of the ancient Book of Kells at Trinity College to discovering the history behind the monuments of St. Patrick's Cathedral, hearing personal stories of famine-era emigration aboard the replica Jeannie Johnston ship to learning how to pull the perfect pint of stout on the Guinness Storehouse tour.

You can get in touch with your inner Viking at Dvblinia, hear snippets of works by the Titans of Irish literature (Swift, Joyce, Beckett, Wilde, Stoker, etc.) at the Dublin Writers Museum, and compare Irish whiskey with Scotch and American whisky with a taste test at the Old Jameson's Distillery.

Not enough? Marvel at the golden riches of the ancient Celts at the National Museum of Archaeology & History, admire modern art for free at the Hugh Lane Gallery, touch a mummy in the crypts under St. Michan's Church, reseach your Irish roots at the National Library's Genealogical Centre, and clap along to traditional tunes on an Irish musical pub crawl.

Here are the top sights, experiences, and travel memories to be made in Dublin.
