Dublin, the Friendliest City in Europe
Dublin, a pasionate beauty, was voted the friendliest city in Europe by several of the biggest names in the travel industry.
It’s no surprise. Her heartbeat pulses down streets and alleys. It flows down the River Liffey and runs into the sea at Dublin Bay. Embraced on one side by soft hills and on the other by a tempestuous sea, Dublin is a pure pleasure any time of year.
Like all interesting people, Dublin has a mysterious past. Her ancient Celtic founders, farmers and fishermen, built megaliths older than the pyramids on the outskirts of their community. These places await you.
Roll with the flow of Dublin’s unique energy. Leaves flutter through the Temple Bar area past vibrant theatres and dazzling pubs. They circle the ankles of street performers, gathering in the doorways of pubs filled with music. Wander down elegant Grafton Street.
Very quiet, on a cool evening, you may hear the lyrical voices of Dublin’s literary children: Nobel laureates William Butler Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, and Samuel Becket. The creator of Dracula, Bram Stoker. Listen, now, there’s James Joyce…
Looking for a taste of ancient magic? Dublin is a focal point of Celtic art and wisdom. Stop and see the Book of Kells at Trinity College, and don’t forget the Beatty Library. With a collection of rare books and intriguing art that’s more than 4,000 years old, a flight of fancy is limited only by your imagination. There has never been a better time to visit Dublin.
Come to the city with a heartbeat as familiar as your own! Best to you from the Authentic Ireland Crew!
