More about the sites above:

The Phoenix Park: Just to the west of the city is the Phoenix Park, Europe’s largest enclosed city park and the green lung of the city. Within the park you will find Dublin Zoo, Aras an Uachtarain (the Irish President’s official residence), Farmleigh House (former home of the Guinness Family and now open to the public) and the US Ambassador’s residence and a herd of wild deer. This is where lots of Dubliners come to exercise and it is a lovely place to spend a few hours away from the bustle of the city.

Grafton Street: The spine of Dublin’s most popular and stylish shopping district runs south from Trinity College to the St Stephen’s Green. This busy pedestrian strip is characterized by street entertainers as well as Dublin’s finest department store Brown Thomas and the famous jewelers Weirs, but also includes many high street names such as Marks & Spencer, Monsoon, Karen Millen, etc.

Georgian Dublin: The 18th century was Dublin’s age of elegance when the Irish gentry set about remodeling Dublin into one of the most elegant cities in Europe. Today the best examples of the Georgian architecture can be seen around Merrion Square, Fitzwilliam Square and St Stephen’s Green.

Trinity College: Trinity was founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I to "civilize" Dublin and is Ireland’s oldest and most famous college. Ireland’s largest collection of books and manuscripts is housed in the Trinity College Library.

St Patrick’s Cathedral: This place is named after the Patron Saint of Ireland who on his journey through Ireland is said to have passed through Dublin. In a well close to where the cathedral now stands, he is reputed to have baptised converts from paganism to Christianity. To commemorate his visit, a small wooden church was built on this site and in 1191 St Patrick’s was raised to the status of cathedral, and the present building, the largest church in the country, was erected between 1200 and 1270.

Guinness Storehouse: Set in the center of one of the world's most famous breweries, Guinness Storehouse has rapidly become Dublin's 'must see' visitor attraction. The Guinness Storehouse is a dramatic story that begins over 250 years ago and ends in Gravity, the bar in the sky, with a complimentary pint of Guinness, and an astonishing view of Dublin!

National Gallery of Ireland: Situated in the heart of Georgian Dublin, the National Gallery of Ireland houses the national collection which includes sculpture, prints, drawings and objets d’art but with paintings by Irish and European artists very much to the fore. The Irish art collection spans every period from the 14th century.

The National Museum: This museum is on Kildare Street and is Ireland’s largest museum and is the national repository for all archaeological objects found in Ireland. Its collection runs to over two million artefacts ranging in date from 700 BC and the late medieval period.

Kilmainham Gaol: For anybody interested in Irish History, a visit to the Kilmainham Gaol is a must. The building was opened in 1796 and during its 130 years as a prison, it housed many of those involved in the fight for Irish independence, including Robert Emmet and Charles Stewart Parnell.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
