The capital of the Republic of Ireland, Dublin is consistently voted as one of the world's friendliest cities...
Long known for its lovable locals and welcoming atmosphere, Dublin is consistently voted as one of the world’s friendliest cities by global travel authorities such as Condé Nast Traveler and Lonely Planet, and the world of Twitter, too.
Fun-loving, natural-born story-tellers and musicians extraordinaire, Dubliners make what this amazing city is renowned for: warm and welcoming pubs, relaxed dining establishments, great conversation, music sessions in the pub, and a bustling street life.
Enter any Dublin pub, and it’ll be mere minutes before conversation kicks off, as around every corner you’ll find friendly chatter and quirky characters.
Outside the city, friendly cafés and farmers’ markets serve up tasty artisan treats with a warm and relaxed Dublin smile. And when it comes to festivals, Ireland goes all out: St Patrick’s Day and New Year’s Festival are celebrated in Dublin every year in style, with thousands of people descending upon the city for an epic party.
There’s so much to look at around every corner — from the green, copper and indigo pigments of the Book of Kells in Trinity College, to the gnarled trees of the Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin.
Music in Dublin is more than just entertainment, it's a way of life. Venture into any pub on a Saturday evening and, chances are, you could walk into an impromptu live “trad” session. But if you want to catch a glimpse of Dublin's dynamic music scene in its rawest form, you can always start with the buskers (street performers) on Grafton Street... where many of Ireland's big music names started their stellar careers all the way to winning Oscars.
