The Fry Model Railway

This is a unique collection of handmade models of Irish trains, from the beginning of rail travel to modern times.

Situated in the beautiful grounds surrounding Malahide Castle, this delightful collection is a treat for railway enthusiasts....

Dublinia

Dublinia has been developed by The Medieval Trust to recreate the formative period in the city's growth from the arrival of the Anglo Normans in 1170 to the closure of its monasteries by Henry VIII in 1540. It is situated in a beautifully preserved building in the heart of the old city, next to Christ Church Cathedral.

Bank of Ireland

This centre of 20th century commerce is one of the most striking of Dublin's 18th century buildings. Built in 1729 to house the Irish Parliament, it became redundant when the British and Irish Parliaments were united in London. It would be a shame to leave this noble city without spending a few moments in one of Europe's most unique chambers.

Dublin Castle

This castle is the heart of historic Dublin. In fact the city gets it name from the Black Pool - 'Dubh Linn' which was on the site of the present Castle Garden. The Castle stands on the ridge on a strategic site at the junction of the River Liffey and its tributary the Poddle, where the original fortification may have been an early Gaelic Ring Fort.
