Even though Dublin is always buzzing with activities, there is also room for serenity. There are plenty of peaceful places in Dublin to visit and explore as well. Many of them are along beautiful rivers, lakes and, of course, the Irish Sea; while others are just open clearings filled with folklore from thousands of years of history.
