What to expect in Dublin
Dublin oozes charm, tradition and literary prowess. Trace the steps of writers like Joyce, Yeats, Shaw and Beckett through the city’s winding cobbled streets and into their favourite rowdy pubs in Temple Bar. Visit the revered Book of Kells in majestic Trinity College, 13th century Dublin Castle and the Little Museum. Dublin’s rich history is everywhere to see. However, with a lively and young university population, Dublin is a dynamic and cosmopolitan city too with outdoor food markets lining the beautiful Georgian and medieval architecture-strewn streets; hip bars, bohemian cafes and cool clubs throng until late and restaurants serve up creative cuisine. Stroll through leafy green parks for a relaxing afternoon or pay a visit to the world famous Guinness Storehouse for an afternoon tipple. While Dublin is a great year round destination, the summers are the nicest time to visit in terms of weather and the number of festivals taking place, including film, music and food. Spring and autumn can still have some good weather, just milder. There will be fewer tourists at this time of year. Winters are cold, dark and wet but definitely the best time of year for romantic windswept beach walks followed by nights in cosy pubs by the fireside. Being the capital city, Dublin is not very cheap although there are opportunities to save money by staying in B&Bs out of the city centre and commuting in by bus. Entry to the Guinness Storehouse costs from £13.80*while a ticket for Dublin Castle is up to £16*. A pint will cost from £4* and a pub dinner for from around £11*. Obviously prices will vary depending on how close to main tourist hot spots you are.
