Old Town Dublin: Famous Pubs (TEST MODE)

Created by
Ciara O’Siorain
Play a city exploration game in Dublin City Centre to learn about the history of the city (and where to find the best pint of guinness!). While you solve challenges, you will see Dublin’s oldest pub and learn its role in the Irish Rebellions, the pub named after a female serial-killing brothel-owner, and where Irish writer, W. B. Yeats, would go for a quiet drink.
