Ireland, the Emerald Isle, is a popular travel destination. People from all over the world come to enjoy the beauty of its lush, rolling hills and its world heritage sites Brú na Bóinne, Skellig Michael (you might recognize it as the home of the adorable Porg in The Last Jedi) and the Giant’s Causeway. It is also the home of over ten thousand geocaches, amongst them the oldest geocache in Europe. Equally deserving of the spotlight is our Geocache of the week, which is located in Ireland’s capital, Dublin.

The cache is located at the top of the Wright State University sign. Seems simple enough, right? Just climb up, grab the cache, and be done with it. But here’s the catch: climbing the structure is not allowed. Plus, judging from the gallery, you may want to bring your friends — lots and lots of friends — for this Geocache of the Week.
