If you are looking for an exotic city to visit that is full of surprises, look no further than Dublin, Ireland. This capital is located on the east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey and is the most populous city in the country.
Despite the gorgeous green pastures of Ireland's countryside, the name Dublin comes from the Irish name Dublhlinn, which means "black pool." Doesn't sound very inviting does it? But, don't let that deceive you. This city has plenty of top-notch attractions that are unparalleled to anywhere else in Europe.
If you and your family are considering vacationing in this place, don't miss these sites:
♦ Kilmainham Gaol – This former prison constructed in 1796 is now a museum and is a place where people go to pay tribute to those who fought for Ireland's independence from England. Many freedom fighters were held here and eventually executed. Public hangings took place here and in an age where women were thought to be the weaker sex, females, males and even kids were put in a single cell.
♦ Guinness Storehouse – You don't have to be a beer lover to tour this museum. With over seven floors, visitors can marvel at the history of Guinness advertising and even enjoy a an interactive exhibit on responsible drinking. If you make it to top of the seventh floor, you'll enjoy a views of city in the Gravity Bar and free pint of the brew that is included with your admission.
