Must to see - Dublin

Street Temple Bar

One of the oldest blocks of Dublin, located in the heart of the city between Deim Street and the River Liffey. Named after the rector of the main university of Ireland (Trinity College), William Temple, who lived here in the XVII century, and the word "bar" denotes the location of this area on the river bank.

In the 80s, Irish bohemians settled here, and gradually Temple Bar became the cultural center of Dublin. Now here are small museums, fashion shops, art galleries, restaurants and pubs. The "Center of Irish Cinema" shows art house films and conduct film festivals.

The special fun in the Temple Bar area begins after 18.00, when the shops close, and the pubs are filled with thirsty, hungry for relax crowds.

The main drinking establishment is the Temple Bar, which stands out among other buildings with a red facade. It is always full of people, musicians play. There are a lot of different sorts of beer here and more than 100 types of whiskey.

Guinness Storehouse

The official name is "Brewery at the Gate of St. James". This is the place where the famous dark Irish beer of the Guinness brand is made. And here is a museum in which you can find out what beer is brewed from and thanks to what ingredients the drink gets a dark color and a specific taste. Nearby - the house of Arthur Guinness, the founder of the brewery, is located.

The famous collection of world records is named after Guinness for a reason: the first book of Guinness was published at the request of the Dublin brewery in order to resolve the long-standing dispute between the head of the enterprise and his friends about which bird was the fastest in the world.

On the ground floor of the museum there is a souvenir shop where chocolate bars and sweets with beer filling are sold. The second one has brewing equipment, huge and ancient. They even allow to press the buttons on the units. One floor above - advertising posters and banners, as well as a collection of different-sized beer bottles. At the very top of the building there is an observation deck, from where, in good weather, almost the entire city is visible.

But the most interesting thing is that tasting itself takes place on the sixth floor of the museum. Beer is slowly poured into a glass at an angle of 45 degrees until a foam cap grows over the glass.

World records of the Guinness book on beer consumption: liter - for 1.3 seconds, 2 liters - for 4.5 seconds, 10.5 liters - for 3 minutes and 16 liters - for 50 minutes.

You can walk on foot from the center of Dublin to the museum. To understand that you are moving in the right direction, is possible by the sharp smell of something very fermented.
