Queen Elizabeth II will continue her groundbreaking Irish trip with visits to a massacre site, a war memorial and the Guinness Storehouse.
She plans to cap the evening with a speech at a state dinner hosted by Irish President Mary McAleese.
The queen is on the second day of a four-day visit to the Republic of Ireland taking place amid exceptional security.
Many of Dublin's streets were closed Wednesday as police lined areas the queen will visit.
The highlight of her day is likely to be her visit to Croke Park, where British forces shot and killed 14 people on Nov. 21, 1920. The large stadium is a revered spot for Irish nationalists.
The queen's evening speech is expected to be her only speech during the visit.
