About Dublin

Dublin is a melting pot that effortlessly blends traditional Irish culture with modern luxury, creating one of the most unique cultural experiences in Europe. Voted one of the most walkable cities in Europe, Dublin offers many pleasant surprises to explorers who enjoy seeing the city on foot. The best place to stroll around is Grafton Street, a busy shopping quarter that offers everything from designer boutiques to quaint bookshops. If you are looking to dive into the unique Celtic root of the Irish culture, head over to Trinity College and marvel at The Book of Kells, which dates back to 800 A.D. If you’re a nature-lover, head over to St. Stephen’s Green and enjoy a picnic away from the crowd without having to leave Central Dublin.

Dublin’s food scene has enjoyed a successful renaissance since the 90s, and the city boasts a wide range of cuisines now. For some of the best dishes in town, head over to the area south of Liffey. If you wish to try delightful cakes or puddings, Queen of Tarts is the place to be.
