“The historical Charlemont House (1908) is home to The Dublin City Gallery also known as the Hugh Lane after the Irish born art collector. He left two wills one bequeathing his entire collection firstly to the National Gallery in London and later to The Dublin City Gallery. So what this means to us is that 4 of its 8 masterpieces are in Dublin until 2021 : Les Parapluies by Renoir Eva Gonzales by Manet Jour d ete by Morisot and View of Louveciennes by Picasso Unmissable also are the bejeweled Harry Clarke Stained glass window display and the entire chaotic studio of Francis Bacon exactly as he left it. ”

“At first hearing about this you might be thinking kitschy stuff and begorrah and begosh, but this is actually a fun and informative way to learn about Irish myths and fairytales. There are a number of rooms, each with their own story. The guides are really entertaining, and the daytime tour is fun for both children and adults. On Friday and Saturday nights, there’s an adults only interactive show, with a darker side to it. Be warned, when you get there a member of the cast will dress you up in a costume – this is part of the interactive experience. ”

Cemetery
“This is one of my favourite places in Dublin to wander around. There is a museum which is worth visiting and tours also but if you just want to walk around the grounds it's free. Please note this is a functional cemetery so be respectful at all times, especially if taking photos. The Grave Diggers Pub (Kavanagh's) next door is great for a pint of Guinness and does lovely food too.”

Although small in scale, the Museum is a unique and favourite destination for tourists from all over the world, the interest in the museum is growing rapidly and last year it had about 10,000 visitors. ”

“14 Henrietta Street is a newly opened museum in a restored 18th century Victorian townhouse which charts the social history of the building from the home of Lord Viscount Molesworth to twentieth century tenement. The building has been rescued from decline and carefully restored into a living history museum which is only accessible via guided tour, which together with stories, short videos and the building itself, bring the story of 14 Henrietta Street, and the story of Dublin alive ”

“ Take a tour of the most iconic recording studios and rehearsal spaces in Ireland, see exclusive memorabilia and hear the stories of bands and pop stars including Thin Lizzy, U2 and Rihanna. You can even have a real-life rock-star experience by ‘starting your own band’ in the museum’s jam room. I recommend: recording yourself singing karaoke at the end of the tour.”
