Kilmainham Gaol Dublin 4.1 km away
#1 of 102 Museums in Dublin
Its a perfect way to start your stay, other museums and sites you will see along your trip will mean more to you after visiting Kilmainham Gaol.
If you enjoy museums, try to get a tour time earlier in the day so you have more time at the prison museum afterwards.

One of the better interactive tours/museums I've visited, the self-guided but well curated path allows you to go at your own pace.

One can see two great cathedrals (Christ Church and St. Patricks) in Dublin, and great museums, and great pubs, but you will only see one collection like the Beatty in the world.
The Chester Beatty Library is a unique museum that sets itself apart from the standard natural history, art, and local history museums you'll find in major cities.
