Dublin is a city that can literally offer it all. Steeped in history, oozing culture and overflowing with party spirit, (the legendary “craic”), Dublin is a city that will welcome, charm and delight any tourist. Whether you are looking to immerse yourself in learning at the numerous museums, experience traditional Irish culture or shop till you drop, you cannot fail to find satisfaction in Éire’s bustling capital.
Dublin is a modern, metropolitan city that has held on to its ancient Celtic roots. The archaeological museum is worth a visit to discover Dublin’s early history. The mummified bog – men and the remains of Viking warriors, the true founders of Dublin, will give the curious visitor an astonishing insight into prehistoric and medieval life, whether you are a history buff or not.
The cultural quarter, The Temple Bar, is home to Dublin’s famous traditional pubs and bars in which typical Irish music can be enjoyed every night whilst enjoying some of Ireland’s favourite home – grown tipples.
Speaking of which, why not visit the world famous Guinness brewery? Home to Ireland’s most famous export the 18th century brewery has been transformed into a smart, modern museum where you can learn about the brewing process before enjoying a pint of “The Black Stuff” whilst overlooking panoramic views of the city, in the brewery’s own bar.
Shopping in Dublin is second to none with recognised brand stores sitting comfortably next to local boutiques, restaurants and cafes.
