Planning on visiting Dublin soon? If so we’ve put together some unique activities for you to do while you’re here. Dublin is such a beautiful city, and it’s so important to make the most of your time here, so why not do something completely original and unique?
Irish Whiskey Distillery
Firstly, let’s start with a tour of an Irish whiskey distillery. However, this is a new one rather than an older more established distillery. It’s the Teeling, and its inches from its predecessor built in 1782. You won’t just find whiskey here, you’ll also find art exhibits, and of course you can tour the distillery and taste the whiskey yourself and see how it’s made.
Hell Fire Club
Next on the itinerary could be the scare of your life by visiting the Hell Fire Club. You’ll find the club on Montpelier Hill and was once the very place where dark arts where practised. You can tour the club, which is actually haunted by the way, and enjoy some scary stories and possible ghostly sightings. It’s a really unique way of seeing Dublin at night. Naturally it’s for adults only.
Father Pat Noise
Who was Father Pat Noise? He was in fact a catholic priest who died suspiciously after his carriage fell into the famous River Liffey. What’s even stranger is that this story isn’t even true, although there is a plaque in his name. You’ll find it on the O’Connell Bridge, and would you believe that actually, Father Pat Noise is an anagram for ‘Our Father.’ People have actually left flowers here. The plaque has remained as a jovial reminder of this convincing joke and you can visit yourself if you wish – and if you really feel the urge, you could even leave flowers.
And what would a visit to Dublin be without a visit to the Leprechaun museum. It’s in the middle of the city and it’s a fascinating look into mythology, fantasy and the cultural history around it. The stories around you are in chronological order and you’re bound to find the whole thing a fun and enjoyable way of spending time with your family.
Shopping in Dublin has to start at Grafton Street
There’s so much to see and do with great brands and chain stores and live music acts for you to enjoy while you shop and enjoy the city. When you’re tired and your feet are aching, there are plenty of restaurants and cafes in and around Grafton Street, so you can sit down and relax with a bite to eat.
