A bit out of the city centre it’s easily accessible by the tram (red line). There is a wonderful exhibition on the Easter Uprising in 1916 and its bloody suppression. This defined modern Ireland and its the only place to see what happened with audiovisual...More

Go visit the stacks, particularly if you have curious kids with you! They will love the serendipity of the place.
