The Insider 3: Top Fun & Festive Dublin Sites
A leprechaun, an iconic pub, and a whole lot of Guinness
National Leprechaun Museum
The NLM, located in the heart of Dublin, is dedicated to the history of Irish culture – exemplified, of course, by the mythical leprechaun. Divided into 12 chapters, the museum enfolds visitors in an interactive folklore experience covering the eighth century to modern times.
Ireland’s most famous beer brand is also a tourist experience in Dublin, where each floor of the seven-story, pint-shaped storehouse focuses on a different aspect of the brewery. Topics cover ingredients, advertisements and, on the fourth floor, a lesson in pouring the perfect pint. The final floor is also home to the Gravity Bar, for panoramic views of the city.
This iconic pub in the Dublin city center has a history spanning more than 160 years, featuring authentic Irish music and culture mixed with modern upkeep. Food options include more than 100 different sandwiches at the award-winning establishment.
