Dublin, Ireland’s capital, has fast become one of Europe’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities. The city has always had a reputation as a great historical city, and its strong links with world literature and the arts are readily apparent. It certainly has a lot to offer visitors – not least it’s diverse attractions.
There is a wealth of architectural detail with the medieval core of the city surrounded by elegant Georgian squares. A great way to see Dublin is on foot and be sure to take a break from your sightseeing by stopping into one of Dublin’s many pubs and bars, or after a long, busy day get yourself a quiet pint, and enjoy the craic.
