PLACES TO VISIT IN DUBLIN
OSCAR’S TOP RECOMMENDATIONS:
- The Hungry Tree is a tree in the grounds of the King’s Inns in Dublin, Republic of Ireland. An otherwise unremarkable specimen of the London plane, it has become known for having partially consumed a nearby park bench. It has become a tourist attraction and is frequently photographed.
- Oratory of the Sacred Heart in Dun Laoghaire (Lovely mural) A nun spent 16 years painting the stunning Celtic mural that covers the interior of this WWI memorial.
- THERE’S A MIND-BLOWINGLY BEAUTIFUL DISPLAY of Celtic Revival artwork hidden in plain sight near a playground and a parking lot in Dún Laoghaire, Ireland. Stepping into the Oratory of the Sacred Heart, which doesn’t look like much from the outside, reveals a stunning mural that stretches across the entire interior of the small red structure.
- Fish n’ Chips at Leo Burdocks after doing Christchurch and St. Patrick. ‘Burdocks’ had seen a great deal of change, from serving up piping hot food during the 1916 rising, which seen Ireland gain independence from Britain, and over the two World Wars when the shops had to close temporarily during WW2 due to shortages. Alas, by 1939 the effects of the last war had a drastic impact on the family business with the supply of ingredients and fuel being scarce. Eventually, only one shop survived the original Leo Burdocks in Christchurch
- Georgian Doors. The best places to look for authentic Georgian Dublin doors are on the south side of the city centre, around the final few developments completed during the period – Merrion Square, Saint Stephen’s Green and Fitzwilliam Square. Besides their tell tale bright hues, you’ll spot them by their fanlights – a semi-circular over-door window featuring radiating panes.
- Dublin Zoo. Now, utterly transformed, Dublin Zoo’s 28 hectares is attracting over 1 million visitors a year. Officially Ireland’s biggest family attraction, not only offers a great day out for all, but also a journey of learning and discovery about the world’s precious wildlife
Wild Lights, the spectacular, night-time experience, Dublin Zoo!
- Sweny’s Pharmacy – James Joyce Heritage Visitor Centre. Managed Exclusively by volunteers, Sweny’s is the only intact Victorian shop interior left in the city. The pharmacy ceased trading in 2009 and in early November of that year began its evolution into what it is today: a cultural centre widely regarded as one of the most interesting places to visit in Dublin.
