Despite its rather diminutive stature, there are a staggering number of fascinating museums in Dublin. Travelers can amble through the ancient treasures of medieval Ireland, or soak up the atmosphere in an 18th-century library.

Other cultural highlights include Newgrange, Dublin Castle, the National Museum of Ireland, and the James Joyce Cultural Centre.
