I don't plan on giving you a history lesson but take a good look at the early 20th century history of the relationship of Ireland and Great Britain. There was an uprising after World War I that lead to a great deal of violence and the death of many heroic young men.

The visit includes a film, a guided tour and a museum with lots of mementos of a tumultuous period of Irish history. Absolutely one of my favorites.
You can take the hop on hop off bus to the general area. We just took a cab. There is a cafe so you can plan to spend several hours and then sit down to a cup of tea while you mull over all you have seen. I have to admit, it brought out my Irish and made me proud.
