Dublin has regularly featured in lists of the best places in the world to visit. Not only is it filled to the brim with history and culture – the locals have a well-deserved reputation for friendliness. Visit a pub in Dublin and you will soon be surrounded by friends – and the night will have just begun.
Talking of pubs – you’ll have to pick your pub of choice very carefully. the city is filled to the brim with wonderful watering holes – each with its own sometimes quirky character. For those who want a great slice of history and want to explore what is reputed to be the oldest pub in Dublin then an evening spent at the Brazen head is an absolute must. It’s been around since 1198 – they must be doing something right. Live music every night and a great Guinness and steak pie or Irish Mussels will set you up for an evening enjoying the ‘Craic’ (great conversation, laughter, gossip and entertainment).
Staying with the beer-themed approach no trip to Dublin would be complete without spending some time at its most popular tourist attraction – the Guinness Storehouse. its simply a deep dive into everything Guinness related and the obligatory drink in the Gravity Bar with its great views and fabulous restaurant on the floor below must be experienced.
Get a little more highbrow and pay a visit to the Dublin Writers Museum. This 18th-century mansion is a treasure of literary excellence. It has exhibitions about the life and times of such literary giants such as Joyce, Swift, Wilde, Beckett and Shaw.
Dublin is an adventure in dining, nightlife, history and culture. It is a destination that has something for everyone. it is one of those iconic cities that will delight and amaze at every turn – everyone should visit Dublin at least once in their lifetime.
