Dublin

Originally a small Viking settlement (its name comes from Dubh Linn meaning dark pool) the Dublin of today is a vibrant capital city bursting with a variety of surprising experiences where city living thrives side by side with the natural outdoors.

Today’s Dublin is a swirling mixture of energy, culture and excitement. It is a fantastic destination for tourists, students, writers and musicians.

Dublin is synonymous with pubs and for many tourists the first thing on their to-do list is to order the obligatory pint of Guinness!

Yet there is much more to Dublin, one cannot wander through its streets without taking into account it’s awesome literary past. It is the birthplace of Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett, James Joyce and Jonathan Swift. WB Yeats also lived on Merrion Square for a time.

Music is an integral part of Irish culture and society, and so it is no surprise that there is an abundance of exciting live music venues in Dublin, ranging from traditional to modern and offbeat; from fresh faced buskers on Grafton Street to the traditional melodies emanating from the many pubs and contemporary venues showcasing home-grown talent and international artists. Dublin lives for music.

Dublin was the birthplace of Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy and you can visit his statue located on Harry Street, just off Grafton Street or visit Molly Malone’s statue located on Suffolk Street, James Joyce’s statue or the two Irish ladies, nicknamed ‘the hags with the bags’.

Visit the Docklands and see the haunting famine memorial dedicated to those Irish people forced to emigrate during the 19th century Irish Famine. Whilst staying in Dublin visit Dublin Castle, the National Botanic Gardens and the Book of Kells at Trinity College or Dublin Zoo in Phoenix Park. Take time to enjoy the Guinness Storehouse and Old Jameson Distillery tours. Dublin really does have something for everyone.
