Located on the site of the original Jameson Distillery, this stop incorporates Ireland's love of both history and whiskey. Learn about the production of Jameson -- and sample some for yourself as well. If beer is more your style, the Guinness Storehouse is the stop for you. The Irish seem to drink this rich stout more often than they do water, and can you really blame them? Trinity College is Ireland's most prestigious university, home to gorgeous architecture, beautiful grounds, and the Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript of the Gospels, dating back to 800. St. Stephen's Green, akin to New York City's Central Park, sits just off Grafton Street. This expansive park is ideal for strolling and taking in some fresh Irish air, as well as perusing the park's many monuments and notable addresses. Temple Bar has preserved the city's medieval cobble-stoned streets and has often been cited as being Dublin's cultural quarter. It's a popular nightlife spot (especially with tourists) as many pubs and restaurants line the streets. Grafton Street is one of Dublin's many shopping thoroughfares. Buskers -- or street performers -- have flocked here since the early 1900s. It's a great spot for people-watching. Christ Church Cathedral is one of Dublin's two medieval churches, the other being St. Patrick's. It is the official seat of both the Church of Ireland and Roman Catholic archbishops of Dublin. The River Liffey runs through Dublin, cutting the city in two. Visiting it is inevitable, but crossing over the O'Connell Bridge -- which was originally built in the late 1700s -- is a particular treat for the historically-inclined.
