With its grand Victorian houses and leafy avenues, this is the heart of well-heeled Dublin. This is where you’ll find many diplomatic outposts, including the landmark US Embassy, a striking circular building with echoes of Celtic design. For echoes of the sporting kind, just down the road you’ll find Lansdowne Road, the home of Irish rugby.

Dublin has a plethora of vibrant little village-style suburbs on the outskirts, with a splendid mix of redbrick Victorian and Edwardian mansions and terraces. The “Three Rs” – Rathmines, Rathgar and Ranelagh – are on the south side and rank among the best of them. The majestic Grand Canal flows through all three, less than 5km from the centre.

In the days before the Celtic Tiger economy, penniless artists lived in Temple Bar. Now this web of narrow streets, bang in the city centre, is a mix of art galleries, restaurants, pubs and music venues. Handel’s Messiah was first performed here in 1742. Cow’s Lane has a Saturday fashion and design market – there’s a surprise round every corner …

There’s a lot to see on these classic Dublin suburban streets – including the Gaelic games stadium, Croke Park, which towers over much of Drumcondra. Start at Fagan’s Pub, local haunt of former Taoiseach (Irish for “Prime Minister”), Bertie Ahern. It was here he brought US President, Bill Clinton, in September 1998. See the photo on the wall.

Saint Stephen's Green

If shopping is your bag, start from St Stephen’s Green – and make elegant and affable Shelbourne Hotel your campaign headquarters. Grafton Street has all the luxury boutiques your wallet can bear. Dawson Street adds restaurants. And believe it or not, the Irish parliament, Trinity College and the National Gallery are all in the same square mile.

Cross the River Liffey to O’Connell Street, which runs all the way to Parnell Square. Here you’ll see monuments dedicated to two very different Dublins: the GPO, with its Greek-style porticos, is where Irish independence was won in 1916; while the 398-foot stainless steel Spire of Dublin was completed in 2003 as a salute to Ireland’s new prosperity.

The first thing Dubliners will tell you about Clontarf is that it’s where Ireland’s last High King, Brian Boru, trounced the Vikings in 1014. The second thing they’ll tell you is that the only battle today is for desirable homes – preferably with views of Dublin Bay. It’s also the perfect setting for a walk in St Anne’s Park or Fairview Park.

Dublin is rich in both culture and things to do, with over 1,000 pubs and countless must-see landmarks like the beautiful Old Library and Book of Kells at Trinity College. The best of the Irish capital can be easily explored on foot since the center is as compact as it is charming. A visit to the Guinness Storehouse offers a fascinating glimpse into one of the city's most famous exports, with an on-site bar offering panoramic views over of the city and plenty of pints of "the black stuff."
Down the charming cobbled streets are a variety of museums, monuments, and galleries like the National Museum of Ireland, Dublin City Gallery, and Dublin Castle. If you want to dive even deeper into the city's past, walking tours are available almost every day, and some are even free.
When evening comes, head to the lively area near Temple Bar, which is packed with traditional pubs and bars. It gets crowded at night, so if you're looking for a more subdued yet authentic Irish expereince, head over to Grafton Street.
Dublin Airport is located about 6 miles from the city center, with an express bus service running between the two every 15 minutes.

Дублин показался максимально живым, разноплановым, сумасшедшим, мультинациональным и культурным городом. Очень понравилось, насколько грамотно представлены туристам главные достопримечательности и исторические ценности страны. Самое большое открытие, превзошедшее все ожидания - это прекрасная природа Изумрудного острова, однозначно хочется вернуться и уже в своем темпе и своим ходом погрузиться в эту особенную атмосферу.
Great Lively City. The people are super friendly. We found Dublin very easy to navigate and walk around the city. We like to take the time to find out of the way places to eat and enjoy the true locals experience. I recommend Kingfishers for breakfast. For a nicer dinner ( semi-casual) Mr. Fox had great food and a cool funky location. We enjoyed another great meal at Legal Eagle (very casual).
Dublin is a mid-sized city, large enough to have plenty of amenities (like parks and public transport) while small enough to still feel a little like a town (we meandered from one side of the city center to the other in a couple of hours). There are plently of little historical sites and landmarks scattered around, so anyone with an interest in history in general or anglo/irish history in particular will find a lot to explore.
The temple bar area is just as you can imagine or even better. The Spire and its history makes Dublin really interesting and makes you want to get to know it. The rolling donut was amazing. The airlink from the airport is really fast and has so many stops.
The food in Dublin was awesome and so is the city. Trip to dundrum village was waste of time.Stephen's green shopping centre and it surrounding were great. Coffee at roadside in Stephen's green was fantastic.
My trip to Dublin was my first as being completely independent and going solo. I'm glad I picked such an amazing place to start. I felt completely safe at all times, even while walking around the city alone at 4 a.m., everyone is super friendly and helpful. It also has both of my favorite things, great history, and beers! I loved going to all the churches, libraries and pubs! It was always a good time for a pint and to listen to great traditional music.
