Last Minute Deals Ireland - A Small Info on Dublin Deals and Dublin City Deals

Dublin Deals

What is now called Dublin was initially known as Dubh Linn, which in Irish means 'black pool'. Found beside Dublin Castle, this was the meeting point of the tiny Stream Poddle and the tidal Stream Liffey. These days Baile tha Cliath is the modern Irish name of the capital city, which translates to 'town of the ford of the hurdles'. The reasoning behind this is that the 4 main Irish travelling routes all intersected at a point on the River Liffey. At about that point, wooden hurdles were laid down to form a primitive bridge when the tide was at its bottom. In the early 9th century A. D, the Vikings landed, and raided places of worship close to the mouth of the two rivers. Over the next one or two years, they established a home here.  Dalkey makes for the ultimate short trip, as it is where notable celebrities like Enya, Wagon Morrison and Bono, to name only a few, reside. As it is only 16km from Dublin City, it is also really accessible. The simplest and most convenient way to get here is by DART ( Dublin's rail system ), which follows the impressive coastline to take you to this pretty town.

Each day Living History Tours tell the tale of the fortified structure and the settlement which built up around it. Negotiating the battlements is definitely worth the effort, as they look out over the Irish Sea, mountains and Dalkey Island. It is claimed that people lived on this small island as far back as 4500BC. If you need more history, make your way to St. Begnet's Church & Graveyard, dating from around 9 hundred AD. Dalkey Town Hall, built in the latter 1800s, is still a working building.

Jameson's Distillery is one of the most standard spots on a sightseeing schedule, as it is the most well-liked of all Irish whiskeys. This is an interesting building, where you can view the first stone foundations thru the clear floor.
