Dublin is a modern and multicultural city but, above all else, Dublin is Irish through and through. The Irish are a self-confident people and very proud of their identity. One thing is sure: you can expect a warm welcome from the 'Dubs'. Treat them to a Guinness and they'll be happy to tell you how deep their patriotic love goes.

Places to visit in Dublin

Ireland's capital is a city of contemporary times, but it is also full of monumental buildings and amazing works of art. A great example is Dublin Castle, which was built in 1204 and still exudes a medieval atmosphere. St. Patrick's Cathedral was named after the country's patron saint. Every year on 17 March, Irish people all over the world get dressed up in green and celebrate St Patrick's Day. Dublin Bay is a beautiful inlet located in the middle of Dublin. This bay offers wonderful beaches spread over an inlet spanning 10 kilometres, where the Liffey and Dodder rivers flow. In the heart of Dublin lies Dublin Castle. If you want to visit the castle, be sure to reserve enough time. Dublin Castle is spread out over some 44,000 square metres.

Discover Dublin

Despite being Ireland's capital and largest city, Dublin is compact and quite easy to explore on foot. Dublin is home to several well-known museums, such as the Irish National Museum, the Museum of Modern Art and Old Jameson Distillery. Relive the history and visit the city parks of St. Petersburg and St. Stephen's Green and Merrion Square. Or follow in the footsteps of Dublin's famous writers, painters, musicians or actors. James Joyce, U2, and Collin Farell are just a few of the familiar names. A trip to Dublin should include a visit to Temple Bar, a district in the city centre. The medieval street pattern gives it a truly distinctive look and feel. It is also where you'll find the Irish Film Institute and various art exhibitions, and perhaps more importantly, lots of Irish pubs. The famous Guinness beer, “the black stuff”, is available in all sorts. It was originally brewed right here in Dublin, at St. James Gate brewery.
