Lively, Literary, and Theatrical

Dublin may not be the grandest or most beautiful of Europe’s cities, but its fascinating history and culture surely makes it one of the world’s most fascinating cultural capitals. Dublin’s literary and theatrical history is what makes it truly spectacular: Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, and Samuel Beckett were all born here, and James Joyce immortalized the city forever in his brilliant short stories Dubliners and his masterpiece Ulysses. A number of world-famous and historical theaters still operate in Dublin, most notably the Abbey and the Gate, and there are several excellent universities right in the downtown area. However, Dublin doesn’t only stand out because of its history and achievements, it also exudes a simple and personal charm that is alien to larger cities. The lush green parks are lovely and inviting places to relax, the pub life is famously lively, the cobblestone streets are appealing places to stroll and shop, and best of all, the locals are talkative and extremely welcoming towards strangers. It’s almost impossible to leave Dublin without making at least a few friends or drinking at least one pint of Guinness.

  • What a lovely city! I lived there for a year and despite its capital status, never felt intimidated. The colorful Georgian doors are some of the most beautiful you'll see in real life, and the whole city is dripping with literary history and great craic!

  • Dublin Pride festival is a great time to visit the city. There's a great parade and so much of the city is decorated in lucky rainbows and flags. We got to talk politics with so many people from all over Ireland.

  • love this city we were there four five days and didn't see half of it a great place for people who like to party, enjoy company or cultur. Dublin just has it all, I can also recommend a short trip with a rental car to Blarney Castle close to Cork and Newgrange about an hour outside off Dublin both worth a daytrip:)

  • Dublin seems like a very western European city. Its people are extremely friendly, the nightlife is great almost every night, and after a while, it starts to feel like home. The only downside is that everything is grossly expensive, from food to housing. Come with a fair amount of Euro in your bank, and you'll definitely have a great time.
