2. Bartra Martello Tower, Dalkey

There's something about towers that immediately piques our interest and this one is located in one of Ireland's most beautiful seaside towns: Dalkey.

Outside, it just looks like any old tower. Inside? It's a completely different story.

3. Google, Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4

The colourful world of Google is but a dream for us mere mortals.

However, thanks to the power of the Internet, we can now catch a glimpse inside one of Grand Canal Docks' most important dwellings.

4. Áras an Uachtaráin, Phoenix Park

That's right, the President's gaff.

This iconic building is so much more than our leader's headquarters, it's one of our national treasures and our own version of The White House.

It has housed a whole load of the important people of our time and here's what they see every time they walk inside those doors...

5. City Assembly House, South William Street, Dublin 2

This magnificent historic house was first built back in 1760s and the place is cloaked in culture and history, peculiarity and oddities.

It served as a museum during the 20th Century but fell into disuse during the last decade. The Irish Georgian Society, along with Dublin City Council, have been restoring it as a cultural venue.
