Dublin is divided into distinct quarters that give a sense of its rich history. The oldest part of the city is the Medieval Quarter. Dublin Castle was actually built where Vikings first settled, and St Patrick's Cathedral and Christ Church Cathedral date back almost a thousand years. The elegant Georgian Quarter embraces Trinity College and Leinster House, the seat of the Irish Parliament. The Liberties quarter is known as Old Dublin, and its former warehouses and whiskey distilleries are now occupied by digital and tech companies. One iconic business remains, however – Guinness is still brewed here, and you can go to the famous Gravity Bar to enjoy a pint of the black stuff.
