Dublin and beyond
Dublin is naturally brimming with history and part of its appeal is peeling back those layers to uncover Viking settlers, medieval cathedrals and gracious Georgian buildings. All of which have played a huge part in why the city is so beloved today.
But our culture has a more vibrant side, too. Take a tour of the hotspots frequented by James Joyce and Oscar Wilde in this UNESCO City of Literature; sample the contemporary cuisine for which Dublin is developing an international reputation; or pop out for a pint to Bono’s local pub, Finnegans, in Dalkey.
If your taste for history is stirred by your Dublin trip, then definitely take the time to explore beyond the city and delve into Ireland’s Ancient East. In this story-strewn part of the island, you can wander through 5,000 years of history, from Neolithic tombs to the great houses of the aristocracy.
