Museums & Galleries

“Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not.”
- George Bernard Shaw

Dublin truly is a city of arts and culture. There are few better ways to spend an afternoon in this capital city than walking in the footsteps of those famous individuals who have gone before us. While staying at your rented luxury holiday apartment in Dublin, take the opportunity to learn about Irish history, art, sport, and even chocolate making! In this age of “on-demand” information, take some time out, pick from the wide range of galleries and museums, and soak up knowledge the old fashioned way.
