No corner of Dublin packs quite the historical and timely punch of the Docklands. This picturesque district around the River Liffey is dotted with sites integral to Ireland’s history – including Boland’s Mill, which had a role in the 1916 Rising, and Grand Canal Docks, once the world’s largest docks upon opening in 1796. Fast forward to today and the area’s also home to some of the world’s biggest tech companies. The likes of Facebook and Google are represented in this bright and buzzy neighbourhood that’s shaping the future and the world as we know it. Other sights on this intriguing tour include Windmill Lane Studio, where U2 recorded many of their hits and the strikingly modern Samuel Beckett Bridge, built in 2007.
