Dublin, Ireland's capital city, is famous for its well-preserved Georgian Architecture. The buildings around Merrion and Fitzwilliam Square typify the Irish Georgian Style. The exteriors of the buildings are understatedly dignified, and doorways are beautifully detailed. The old Irish Parliament building, located on College green, was the first Palladian style building built in the British Isles. Dublin also contains two excellent Gothic Cathedrals – Christchurch and Saint Patrick's Cathedral, these are open to the public.

Dublin Tourism's offices are on Suffolk Street (south side) and O’Connell Street (north side); they will have lists of attractions and tours to take. The tourist office also produces ‘the tourists guide to the best in Dublin’ which will be available in your hotel. The best tourist attractions are marked on the map of Dublin above.
