Visiting Dublin, Ireland

Dublin is the capital city of Ireland and is located on the East coast. It is renowned for its Irish tradition and the friendly atmosphere that is created by the locals. Despite being the biggest city in Ireland, Dublin is relatively compact and can be seen on foot.

Hundreds of years ago Dublin was a trading point for slaves and silver. At the time it was controlled by the Viking military. Years later in 1169, Dublin was taken over by the Normans. After a short period of power they Normans gave the city up to English colonial administration. The Easter Rising of 1916 was the turning point of the city and the end of the UK’s influence on. From this point onwards Dublin was run by the Anglo Irish Treaty that eventually formed the Republic of Ireland.

Dublin has a sizable number of immigrants, coming from Great Britain, the US, Australia, New Zealand, and continental Europe. More recently, Nigerian, Indian, and Eastern European populations have also migrated into Dublin, largely attracted by Ireland’s economic success since the mid-1990’s. Old and once run-down streets have rapidly become busy ‘ethnic districts’, such as Moore Street’s transformation into ‘Little Africa’ and Parnell Street East into the city’s de-facto ‘Chinatown’ and ‘Asian Village’. These villages of Dublin are a great way for tourists to spend the afternoon, casually walking the cobblestone streets, shopping and having lunch!

The river Liffey separates Dublin, the North from the South, with typically the working class on the North and the middle and upper class on the South. In more recent years Dublin has also been divided socio-economically between East and Westside too. But not to worry! There are plenty of restaurants and nightlife anywhere you want to go in Dublin, from the friendly outdoor pubs to the Temple Bar, which is “The Place” for nightlife and often people from Britain and beyond visit for the weekend.

Whatever you prefer, you are sure to find in Dublin. And don’t forget to catch a football or a rugby game at Croke Park, which seats 82,300 fans! There are other sports arenas scattered around the city for soccer, horse and greyhound racing, baseball, and other athletic events which are held at Morton Stadium in Santry.

If there is one thing the city has an abundance of, aside from the famed Irish charm, it’s bed and breakfasts in Dublin. With over twenty tourist-board-approved bed and breakfasts, there is always a place for you to stay in Dublin. There are twin-sharing accommodations for those who love company and single-occupant accommodations for those who prefer the solitary way.

So, from fine dining to eating in your hotel and the wonderful restaurants, to cultural exhibits around town, and seasonal sports events across the country to ending a wonderful day with a night of dancing or walking along the beach, there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy while in Dublin.

And don’t forget the week-long celebrations for St Patrick’s Day in Dublin, which culminate in the great parade on 17 March.
