There are many layers to the city of Dublin amongst which every visitor finds their niche. It is a bustling city with a population of over 1.7 million and is home to over 100 different nationalities all of whom contribute to the fabric of Dublin. While it has a genuine cosmopolitan feel, Dublin has still managed to retain its own distinct culture which is expressed in a love of literature, drama, traditional music and sport.
Browsing the shops on Dublin’s Grafton Street is a renowned pastime as the shopping can also be combined with sight-seeing. The city is abundant with unique buildings and quirky stores; and the streets are always bustling.
The wide-ranging choice of hotels, restaurants, and pubs meets every visitor’s pocket and taste and whether it is a chic boutique hotel, world-class international accommodation or a quaint B&B, Dublin’s menu suits every palette.
With Michelin Star Restaurants centrally located, to casual eateries for resting the feet, again the mood and inclination of Dublin’s guests is anticipated, provided for and enjoyed.
Of course, the quintessential Dublin Pub provides the focal point of Dublin’s social life, illuminating the vibrant hues of Dubliners and their culture. Conversation flows freely unleashing the unique atmosphere that defines the city.
