The capital city of Ireland, situated on the River Liffey, has numerous cultural offerings and an important place in history. Dublin, a UNESCO-designated City of Literature, has a penchant for producing some of the most creative figures in the world. James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde and Bram Stoker were all born in this County Dublin city. Come see the city for yourself, and perhaps its old cobbled streets and hedonistic lifestyle will inspire you, too.
Dublin is relatively small and pedestrian-friendly, so the best way to explore it is on foot. Why not sign up for a literary walking tour in the daytime, followed by a Guinness-fuelled pub crawl at night?
It’s also worth visiting the famous Trinity College, a world class educational institution. Make a stop at the beautiful Long Room Library to see their impressive collection of Irish literature. You can also steal a glance at the Book of Kells, a religious manuscript that dates back to 800 AD.
For a spot of culture, you can pay a visit to the National Museum of Ireland, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the National Print Museum and the Glasnevin Cemetery Museum.
The city’s riverside location and its friendly residents are just some of the things that draw visitors here and make Dublin one of the bestand most fun places to visit.
