Dublin travel information

Dublin hotels

Dublin is a friendly city. There are numerous things to do, but the main Dublin attraction has to be its handsome, quick witted and hilarious people.

If you're into history, then see the General Post Office, the scene of the 1916 Easter Rising. The National History Museum is another definite highlight. However, if you fancy something a bit less serious, go shopping on Grafton Street, see Phoenix Park, or go to rugby or hurling game. Or eat at one of the many restaurants - visiting somewhere that does traditional Irish food is a must.

Spending a few hours in a Dublin pub - or pubs - is a must-do experience. You can join a guided pub crawl - the most famous is themed around the watering holes of noted Irish writers.

Or you can just wing it. At the very worst, you'll get to try Guinness at its finest. At the very best, you'll stumble upon impromptu traditional music sessions, make a few new friends, and wake up in urgent need of a fried breakfast. This, happily, is something else that Dublin is very good at.

Dublin travel

Dublin is the capital city of the Ireland and has a population of over one million. A city of culture with, theatres, museums, parks, numerous pubs street life and great Dublin city breaks. On the south side of the River Liffey are the museums, churches, castles and public buildings. College Green is the home of Trinity College and Grafton Street a main shopping area.


Characterized by rocky beaches, rugged cliffs, and misty moors, the Emerald Isle attracts millions of visitors each year, and its capital city of Dublin is one of its most popular destinations. Dublin lies on the east coast of the Republic of Ireland and has a population of less than two million. Although it is a bustling, world-class city, much of it retains a “village” atmosphere. With a rich history, strong literary traditions, and an active pub culture, Dublin has something to offer everyone.

Many people go to Ireland to visit its glorious castles. While most of Ireland's more famous castles are outside the city of Dublin, there are a few well-known ones worth visiting within the city. Dublin Castle, in the heart of historic Dublin, dates back in its present form to the 13 th century, but a Danish Viking Fortress is said to have been erected on the site as early as the 10 th century.

 
Visitors can tour some of the castle, including the State Apartments and the Throne Room. Malahide Castle is another Dublin landmark. Surrounded by 250 acres of park land, Malahide Castle was inhabited from 1195 until as recently as 1973. The castle hosts banquets and special events and is home to the Talbot Botanic Gardens. Dublin's many cathedrals, such as Christ Church Cathedral and St. Patrick's Cathedral, are also awe-inspiring and should not be missed.

Dublin is proud of its rich literary heritage and celebrates its writers the way Hollywood celebrates its actors. Dublin was and is home to many famous writers, including William Butler Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, Samuel Beckett, Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift, and Bram Stoker, as well as contemporary writers like Maeve Binchy, Marian Keyes, and Roddy Doyle. But Dublin's most famous son is undoubtedly James Joyce. The city has dedicated an entire museum to the author of Dubliners and Ulysses, and he is immortalized in bronze on North Earl Street. Literature-lovers will also find the Dublin Writers' Museum and the Book of Kells on display in Trinity College Library of particular interest.

An active pub culture defines the city of Dublin. There are a number of traditional pubs, bars, and nightclubs to choose from in the trendy Temple Bar area, but the best place to sample Ireland's signature drink – Guinness – is at the Guinness Storehouse. The Guinness Storehouse is Ireland's number one tourist attraction, ranking above its fairy-tale castles, ornate cathedrals, and seaside villages. The Guinness Storehouse contains seven floors dedicated to the brewing process and features tours, tastings, interactive exhibits, Guinness-themed merchandise, and a restaurant.

Dublin's city center is easy to navigate on foot, but the city also has a network of public buses, trains, and trams. Plans have been set forth to construct a metro system, but work has not yet commenced. Dublin's proximity to the sea also means that several ferries operate out of its ports, mainly ferrying passengers back and forth to England, Scotland, and Wales.

The Republic of Ireland is a member of the European Union. The official currency is the Euro.
