The Fair City
Dublin offers a wealth of historic sites dating back to a 1000-year-old Viking village, and as one might expect of the Irish, there is a tale to be told about every one.
St. Patrick’s Cathedral is said to have been erected on the site where the saint himself converted pagans in AD 450.
From Dublin Castle the crown jewels were stolen in 1907; an unsolved mystery left to the fictional Sherlock Holmes to decipher.
Some pubs, great sources of stories, are almost as old – you can sample a Guinness and the latest lore at The Brazen head, serving up drink and daydreams for 800 years.
Then for a contrast, ride to a stunning view of contemporary Dublin atop a brand new observation wheel.
