Dublin city is split between north and south by the River Liffey and although it is regarded by many to be the lesser half, the north side boasts an amazing amount of history. From whence the establishment of Dublin as a settlement began the northern half has seen many clashes between Viking and Norman troops vying for control. In Castleknock there is the ruins of a 12th century Norman castle which is thought to have been built on the ruins of a Viking fortification, this location offers evidence of the earliest recorded historical events on the isle. The Middle Ages saw an influx of English and Welsh settlers to the rural areas of North Dublin. These settlements would later provide conflicts as native Irish were soon segregated to Irishtown south of the Liffey. Closer to the centre there is an amazing amount of well-preserved Georgian architecture which dates back to the 18th century.
The north side of Dublin has plenty to entertain travelling tourists. Dublin’s contribution to the world of literature has predominantly come from north of the Liffey, this is reflected in the Dublin Writers Museum which houses work from James Joyce, Bram Stoker, Roddy Doyle, Samuel Beckett and Oscar Wilde as well as other Irish writers from the outset of history. Phoenix Park resides just north of the river and is the largest inner city park in Europe. Among the sprawling parkland you’ll find the President’s residence, wild deer roaming free, as well as one of Dublin’s top attractions in Dublin Zoo. There are a host of theatres big and small dotted across the area ranging from small amateur shows to touring professional productions.
One of the most notable locations on the north side is Croke Park, a huge stadium which is home to the native Irish sports of Gaelic Football and Hurling. On site there is a museum which is open year round which exhibits the entire history of the G.A.A, both sports wise and its role in the pursuit of freedom. If you’re in Dublin in the summer months it is highly recommended to attend a match here in this historic stadium to see some of the fastest games in the world played entirely by non-professionals.
