5 things to do in Dublin
2) Visit Dublin's Natural History Museum, which has three floors with a huge variety of persevered specimens from nature, big and small. Comes highly recommended to taxidermy fans.
3) If you're a fan of the revered wit, writer and poet Oscar Wilde, I earnestly advise you to visit his house in Merrion Square and his statue in Merrion Park opposite.
4) Put on a silly plastic viking hat (you know the real ones never had horns?) and take a Viking Tour. Sitting in a bright yellow "duck" - an amphibious vehicle built in Boston during the Second World War, you will be guided through the city before gliding on the water for a different view of Dublin. Unfortunately due to EU environmental laws the original ducks will not be in use for very much longer. (Warning: site-seers on the Viking Tour have a tenancy to roar at unsuspecting members of the public. If you're on the pavement stay vigilant.)
5) You'll be hard pressed to find no where with live music on any night of the week. The Cobblestone, 77 North King Street, is renowned for it's traditional Irish music and a good pint of Guinness.
