2 Full days in Ireland after Christmas 2016

Hi, We will be flying into Dublin and have two full days available in the city. We are staying at the Ashling Hotel. Any recommendations for ideas to visit for the two days would be helpful. Thanks!

You will need to check what will be open.

Will you have a car or simply staying in Dublin ?

What are your interests? Archaeology? Religion? The Troubles? Art? Music?

In Dublin:
Book of Kells at Trinity College
The Gaol
National Museum of Ireland

If you want to see another country then take the 2 hour bus or train ride to Belfast in Northern Ireland and see the Titanic Museum, take the Black Cab Tour of the Troubles, have the seafood chowder at Mournes next to Kelly Cellar's pub and head back to Dublin. Long day but you can say you've visited two different countries. Just remember currency in N Ireland in British Pounds not Euros.

If you have a car then Newgrange and or Glendalough then back to Dublin.
