Dublin offers magnificent Georgian architecture, historic churches, modern galleries, parks and gardens, lively bars and acclaimed restaurants.
A magnet for artists and academics both past and present, this city, the cultural capital of Ireland, is a rich mix of old and new and a fascinating place to stay. We’ve visited Dublin countless times and we’d definitely recommend that you take your time to get to know the city. Meander through the streets to appreciate the beautiful buildings, especially the colourful Georgian doors. Be enticed into one of the many old pubs and linger over your Guinness – there’s always someone who’ll give you the benefit of their ‘expert’ local knowledge. Ride the DART out of town and take in the sea air at the coastal resorts of Dalkey, Howth, Blackrock and Dun Laoghaire or to just sit by the banks of the Liffey and watch the world go by for a while. We promise you won’t be disappointed.
