Dublin is a buzzing city packed with excitement and charm. Sitting on the east coast of the Republic of Ireland, the country’s capital is a hugely popular destination for all manner of trips. From great pubs to fascinating museums and galleries, Dublin has it all.
One of Dublin’s most famous features is its vibrant nightlife. It has a youthful feel that contributes to this, and you can be sure of having a great night out surrounded by locals and other visitors in spots like Harcourt Street and Camden Street. If you’re lucky enough to be in town for St. Patrick’s Day, otherwise known as Paddy’s Day on 17 March each year, you’re in for a real treat. Dublin really comes alive for the biggest party of the year to give you an unforgettable experience.
The Black Stuff
Dutifully supplying both Paddy’s Day and the masses of wood-paneled pubs is the iconic ‘Black Stuff’. You can sip the finest pint of Guinness you’ve ever tasted in Dublin, and go to the Guinness Storehouse to learn all about its history and how it’s brewed. The city’s not all about drinking culture though, and there’s lots of other wonderful cultural draws to savour while you’re there.
Dublin has a celebrated literary history, and famous wordsmiths such as Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw and William Butler Yeats were all born in the city. You can also visit fabulous places like the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery and Dublin Castle, while St. Patrick’s Cathedral is the largest church in Ireland.
