Dublin really does have it all - a delightful combination of architecture both ancient and modern, a long and fascinating history, wonderful cultural traditions, endless good-natured ‘craic’ plus every cosmopolitan flourish that you could possibly expect from a 21st century city.

Dublin is home to one of the most youthful populations in all Europe, and this is reflected in the vast number of cool bars, fashionable restaurant and great shopping destinations in the city.

Dublin’s heritage dates back more than a millennium, and there are nods to this on every cobbled corner - from elegant cathedrals to atmospheric medieval castles. Stroll across the city and you will see endless reminders of its great literary past, with the homes of George Bernard Shaw, Samuel Beckett and James Joyce very popular locations with tourists.

The modern Culture vulture will also be spoilt for choice when it comes to galleries and museums. There are a whole plethora of well stocked spaces, including the charming National Museum of Ireland, the inspirational National Library, the wonderful National Gallery and the adorable Little Museum of Dublin - which boasts as an exhibit the lectern that US president John F. Kennedy stood at when he addressed the National Parliament way back in 1963. An absolute must visit is the stunning Dublin Castle. Built in the 13th century, it is packed full of interesting objects and will charm the whole family. Newer attractions including the Guinness Storehouse are boosting the profile of the city - and anyone who enjoys a pint of the black stuff should make a beeline to this quintessentially Irish attraction. In addition, a new Skyline tour that offers epic views right across the city has recently opened up at Croke Park Stadium, and a brand new scheme through which visitors can hire bikes is opening up the city to keen cyclists.

Dublin is an exuberant city that is simply bursting with life, and this is seen to its best advantage as night falls. The main hub of the action is focused on the area immediately around the lively temple Bar district.

Dublin also has a deservedly fantastic reputation for the quality of its live music scene, so try and make time in your schedule to get down to a gig or two.

The city is also ideally located to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside. Just a stone’s throw away you will come across wild deserted beaches, verdant forests and brooding mountains - and get a sense of the rural heart of this wonderful country.
