Local Attractions #7: Dublinia

The City of Dublin can trace its origin back more than 1,000 years from when the Vikings settled in the area known as Duiblinn (or Black Pool). Here at Dublinia, you get to learn about life back in the Viking and the medieval period in Dublin.

Go back in time and learn all about Viking times in Dublin. See artefacts and weapons, try on Viking clothing and walk among a Viking street as you learn all the interesting aspects of Viking culture. Then move on to the middle ages, and learn all about crime, warfare and disease of medieval Dublin as these two exhibitions are brought to life right in front of you.

The last part of the tour takes you into the life of archaeology as you learn in depth how science allows us to piece parts of history together. Courtesy of the National Museum of Ireland, see genuine Viking and Medieval artefacts including the skeletal remains of a Viking warrior and a medieval woman, both found in Dublin.
