A NEW TOURISM trail and website were launched this evening, with the aim of highlighting some of the most iconic attractions on Dublin’s northside.
The new Dublin Northside Attractions (DNA) initiative takes in 12 of the city’s most vibrant attractions, inviting members of the public to rediscover “the rich cultural heritage” of north Dublin.
“As a proud northsider, I am very familiar with the myriad places of interest and sites of historical significance located on Dublin’s northside,” commented Minister for Tourism Paschal Donohoe today.
“Many of these are well known worldwide; some to a lesser degree.The aim of this initiative is to bring these attractions together under one umbrella organisation so that they can have a greater impact as a cohesive unit than they would by working independently.”
These are the attractions that will be highlighted:
Old Jameson Distillery
National Botanic Gardens
GAA Museum and Croke Park Stadium
Guinness Storehouse (not on the northside but still included…)
The James Joyce Centre
The Hugh Lane Gallery
Dublin Tenement Experience
1916 Rebellion Walking Tours
GPO – Witness History
Dublin’s DNA offers a number of touring options starting with a hop on / hop off bus route provided by Dublin City Sightseeing Tours.
A number of guided walking trails already exist and new DNA walking trails are in development. Visitors will also be encouraged to experience Dublin’s DNA using the variety of options including Dublin Bike and walking.
