Dublin and Leinster

Leinster tends to be dominated by Dublin City, but the capital city is just part of the historic province. Here the visitor will also find the ancient monuments of Newgrange and Knowth, the royal seat on the Hill of Tara, the site of the Battle of the Boyne and the monastic site of Glendalough. Dublin alone is worth a few days for exploring the museums and historic sites - as well as savouring the shopping, the music and the nightlife.
