Dublin is a cultural capital with a rich history. Natives abroad yearn for the pubs and the humour (or "craic") which teem in this ever-growing city. A fascinating place with incredible beautifully preserved mansions and castles, meticulously curated museums, churches, cathedrals, and parks, the city has one foot in the past and en eye on the future.
Dublin's attractions are as diverse as they are plentiful: from the 11th-century Christ Church Cathedral to the Leprechaun Museum, this city has a wide selection to offer. The plethora of literary pubs have earned its status as one of just five UNESCO Cities of Literature on the planet. You can raise a pint to writers like James Joyce and Bram Stoker, or explore the life and works of poet WB Yeats at the National Library.
