One of the best ways to feel out Dublin and its people is to walk its streets, dodge the traffic, wander into a store, stroll down an alley, speak with an old gentleman on the bridge over looking the River Liffey, and strike up a conversation with a couple of people at a pub. Next…. Stand beneath a streetlight, alone or with a friend, and feel the heartbeat of Dublin.
The Capital City – A Vibrant Gem
“…One of the most fantastic things about Ireland and Dublin is that the pubs are like Paris and the café culture… only more so…”
Consider these possibilities: Historical sites; parks; literary Dublin; brisk walks for exercisers; views of the hills and coast; a stroll that lets you peek into the everyday life in the ‘burbs; traditional Irish music and pubs. Trek down waterways and around castles. Or, when your feet wear out, you can hop on rapid transportation or grab a cab. Some travelers wish to take a tour bus of Dublin their first day in order to get their bearings—we can set that up for you too. Whatever you enjoy in a city, Dublin has it. Authentic Ireland will make plans according to your interests and available time.
Every city has its own blood and body, a definite personality. Dublin is one of the finest cities in the world. If you’re looking for village life, this is not the place for you. This city pulses with music and art, museums and galleries, talk and energy. It is a city reborn, and wonderfully so. No one knows exactly how old Dublin is. We do know this: it celebrated its one-thousandth birth in the year 1988.
After a day of exploring, you can collapse in your lodgings until you’re ready to go out and enjoy all that Dublin has to offer at night.
