Dublin has many landmarks and monuments dating back hundreds of years. One of the oldest is Dublin Castle as its shown in Dublin attractions map, which was first founded as a major defensive work on the orders of King John of England in 1204, shortly after the Norman invasion of Ireland in 1169, when it was commanded that a castle be built with strong walls and good ditches for the defence of the city, the administration of justice, and the protection of the King treasure. Largely complete by 1230, the castle was of typical Norman courtyard design, with a central square without a keep, bounded on all sides by tall defensive walls and protected at each corner by a circular tower. Sited to the south-east of Norman Dublin, the castle formed one corner of the outer perimeter of the city, using the River Poddle as a natural means of defence.
One of Dublin newest monuments is the Spire of Dublin, or officially titled "Monument of Light". It is a 121.2 metres (398 ft) conical spire made of stainless steel and is located on O'Connell Street as you can see in Dublin attractions map. It replaces Nelson Pillar and is intended to mark Dublin place in the 21st century. The spire was designed by Ian Ritchie Architects, who sought an "Elegant and dynamic simplicity bridging art and technology". During the day it maintains its steel look, but at dusk the monument appears to merge into the sky. The base of the monument is lit and the top is illuminated to provide a beacon in the night sky across the city. Many people visit Trinity College, Dublin to see the Book of Kells in the library there. The Book of Kells is an illustrated manuscript created by Irish monks circa. 800 AD. The Ha'penny Bridge; an old iron footbridge over the River Liffey is one of the most photographed sights in Dublin and is considered to be one of Dublin most iconic landmarks.

The Poolbeg Towers are also iconic features of Dublin and are visible in many spots around the city. Dublin has more green spaces per square kilometre than any other European capital city, with 97% of city residents living within 300 metres of a park area. The city council provides 2.96 hectares (7.3 acres) of public green space per 1,000 people and 255 playing fields. There are many park areas around the city, including the Phoenix Park, Herbert Park and St Stephen Green. St Anne Park is a public park and recreational facility, shared between Raheny and Clontarf, both suburbs on the North Side of Dublin.

Dublin Zoo (Irish: Zú Bhaile Átha Cliath), in Phoenix Park, Dublin, Ireland is the largest zoo in Ireland and one of Dublin most popular attractions. Opened in 1831, the zoo describes its role as conservation, study, and education. Its stated mission is to "work in partnership with zoos worldwide to make a significant contribution to the conservation of the endangered species on Earth". Covering over 24 hectares (59 acres) of Phoenix Park, it is divided into areas named World of Cats, World of Primates, The Kaziranga Forest Trail, Fringes of the Arctic, African Plains, Birds, Reptiles, Plants, City Farm and Endangered Species as you can see in Dublin zoo map. The Royal Zoological Society of Dublin was established at a meeting held at the Rotunda Hospital on 10 May 1830 and the zoo, then called the Zoological Gardens Dublin, was opened on 1 September 1831. The animals, 46 mammals and 72 birds, were donated by London Zoo.
The zoo is part of a worldwide programme to breed endangered species. It is a member of the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP), which helps the conservation of endangered species in Europe. Each species supervised by the EEP has a single coordinator that is responsible for the building of breeding groups with the aim of obtaining a genetically balanced population. Dublin Zoo manages the EEP for the Golden Lion Tamarin and the Moluccan Cockatoo as its shown in Dublin zoo map. It also houses members of the species Goeldi monkey and the white-faced Saki which are part of EEPs coordinated by other zoos. The focus is on conservation, which includes breeding and protecting endangered species, as well as research, study and education. Rodrigues fruit bats are one of Dublin Zoo endangered species. Fruit bats, as their name suggests, feed on fruit and because of that are very important to the rain forest.
Dublin Zoo is involved in the international breeding program and helps to fund researchers who study the Tamarins in Brazil as its mentioned in Dublin zoo map. Dublin Zoo holds the European studbook for Moluccan Cockatoos. A studbook is a record of all the individuals of a particular species that are held in zoos in a region. It contains information such as the sex of the animal, how old it is and who its parents were. Themed areas were decided on and the first, World of Primates, opened to the public in 1996. The latest, African Plains, opened in 2001. African Plains, opened in 2001, covers 13 hectares. Animals in the African Plains include Bongos, African Lions, African Wild Dogs, Red River Hogs, White-crowned Mangabeys, Chimpanzees, White Rhinos, Hippos, Giraffes, Zebras, Ostriches, Gorillas and Scimitar-horned Oryx (this species is now extinct in the wild). There are no longer any Polar Bears at Dublin Zoo because the enclosure was too small for them.
