More about Dublin

Dublin is the lively, historic and population-dense centre of Ireland. Over two million people live in Dublin, which represents two-thirds of the entire population of the country. Despite this, the centre of Dublin is relatively small, as most people live in the surrounding suburbs. Dublin's port is easily Ireland's most important terminal hub for ferry passengers and freight.

Dublin is a very popular tourist destination, with people arriving in their hundreds of thousands each year in search of the “craic”. The summer can see the centre of Dublin become densely packed with visitors. There are numerous bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants, particularly in the O'Connell Street area.

If literature appeals to you then Dublin will definitely suit, as the city was once home to a number of exceptional writers, including George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce and W.B. Yeats. You can pay your respects to these great talents by visiting the Dublin Writers Museum in Parnell Square.

Also on your Dublin itinerary should be the National Botanic Gardens, the National Gallery of Ireland and the National Museum of Ireland. The latter is split into three different buildings: Archaeology on Kildare Street, Arts & History at Collins Barracks and Natural History on Merrion Square.
