Any time spent in Dublin can never be called misused. Just sampling the local atmosphere and chatting with the people in one, or perhaps several, of the 1000 or so pubs that line the city streets is a worthy pastime in itself. Of course, being a modern, European capital, Dublin also has a wide choice of gourmet dining opportunities as well as world-class shopping, but there are plenty of other attractions and ways to pass the time, including:
The Guinness Storehouse
Over by St Jamesâ€™s Gate, on the site of the very brewery where Arthur Guinness bought the lease that was good for 9000 years, back in 1759, is the museum and exhibition dedicated to the tradition, history and production of, possibly, the worldâ€™s most famous pint of beer. The main entrance is called the Atrium and doubles as the worldâ€™s largest pint glass. From there, the tour takes you through the entire brewing process, demonstrating how natural ingredients, a time honoured tradition, and the use of modern technology come together to create the famous black stout. You will then be given the opportunity to try pouring the â€˜Perfect Pintâ€™, an artful process thatâ€™s supposed to take exactly 125.27 seconds. You will receive a certificate and be able to enjoy the drink in the Perfect Pint Bar, on the top floor of the brewery.
The Guinness Storehouse can be found on the south side of the river, about a kilometre west of Dublin Castle. Besides the brewing process, the Storehouse also has exhibits devoted to the famous and award-winning past Guinness advertising campaigns, as well as the sporting and cultural events that the brewery has sponsored over the years. There are also two further bars, a souvenir shop, and a gourmet restaurant that specialises in preparing dishes that include Guinness as an ingredient.
Phoenix Park is 707 hectares (over 1700 acres) of parkland found right in the heart of Dublin. Originally founded as a Royal deer park in the 17th century, itâ€™s since become one of the largest enclosed parks of any capital city in Europe. Over 30% of the park has tree cover, while a herd of Fallow Deer roam freely, having enjoyed its home in the park for over 350 years. There are also other wildlife habitats and conservation areas within Phoenix Park, as well as the famous Dublin Zoo, so you are likely to see far more wildlife than just deer as you explore. In the park as well are the Victorian Peoples Flower Gardens, 22 acres of promenade grounds that display Victorian flower beds, and there are also ornamental lakes, a picnic area, and a childrenâ€™s playground.
Chesterfield Avenue, the main road running through Phoenix Park, begins about 600 metres north of the Guinness Storehouse, just over the river, and runs past Dublin Zoo and the American Ambassadorâ€™s Residence, to emerge near Castleknock. Also inside the Park is the former Presidential Residence from 1750, and tours of which can be arranged, as well as Ashtown Castle, a fully restored 17th century tower that contains the Phoenix Park Visitor Centre. Refreshments in the Park can be found at the Phoenix CafÃ© and the Victorian Tea Kiosk.
