National Museum of Ireland — Archaeology

The National Museum of Ireland on Kildare Street is a treasure trove of artefacts dating from as early as 7,000 B.C. Take time to visit The Treasury, which features outstanding examples of Celtic and Medieval art, such as the famous Ardagh Chalice, the Tara Brooch, and the Derrynaflan Hoard.

Do & See

Dublin's streets are a busy mix of past and present. This city has always inspired writers, visitors, and political firebrands alike. To walk these streets is to journey through history–from the city's Viking roots by the banks of the river Liffey to its atmospheric medieval churches with their mummified remains and holy relics. The more recent architecture includes the gracious Georgian streets, as well as museums, theatres, and several parks where one can escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
