A city of history and beer

Unlike some other capitals, Dublin is easy to explore on foot. Be warned, however, that pleasant walks through its streets, admiring glances towards its historical sights and discovering new flavours of Irish beer can often be accompanied by downpours, so don’t forget your brolly. Dubliners have a special attitude towards beer, so a traditional Irish pub will meet you at almost every turn. An evening at the pub is one of the highlights of a visit to Dublin and the best place to meet its entertaining and social locals in their natural surroundings.

Dublin has a long and rich history dating back to the 9th century, when the settlement was founded by the Vikings. Traces of its Viking past have remained only in fragments, but the city is rich in medieval history and full of famous buildings, museums and galleries. In addition to medieval castles and cathedrals, Dublin is also home to 18th century architectural masterpieces, the period when it was the most beautiful Georgian city in the British Empire. History still resonates on its cobbled streets, through the majestic towers of Trinity College, and beautiful squares, but the high-tech boom of the last decade has radically transformed its image, especially in the new Docklands area.

St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Trinity College with one of the largest libraries in the world, and the Irish Museum of Modern Art are the three must-see attractions, showcasing the architectural mastery of Ireland’s people.
