Next is Grafton Street, once ranked as the fifth most expensive main shopping street in the world. Still a shopping mood, visit Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, an 18th century Georgian mansion that is now Dublin's strangest shopping mall. Created by combining old buildings and a glass-covered backyard area, it has to be seen to be believed.

Turning from a castle to art, you will walk past the Chester Beatty Library Galleries. This art museum and library houses the great collection of manuscripts, miniature paintings, prints, drawings, rare books and some decorative arts assembled by Sir Alfred Chester Beatty (1875-1968).
Next on the tour is towering St Patrick’s Cathedral, founded in 1191. This is the National Cathedral of Ireland and is one of two cathedrals in Dublin, the second being Christ Church Cathedral.
Then proceed to the 11th century Christ Church Cathedral, for another lesson in Dublin’s ancient history. Founded after the then king of Dublin made a pilgrimage to Rome, the cathedral was built close to a Viking settlement. After touring around the cathedral, you’ll wander along a former Viking Street, Fishamble Street.
Your tour concludes in the cobbled streets of Temple Bar, Dublin’s “cultural quarter, “which saw the first performance of Handel’s “Messiah” in 1742. Today, Temple Bar has a lively nightlife and houses several Irish cultural institutions.
From Temple Bar, you will need to make your own arrangements for getting back to your accommodation.
