Dublin DUB

Garrulous, gritty and endlessly charming, Ireland’s capital combines an impeccable cultural pedigree with oodles of personality. This city was made for walking: take a stroll around the compact centre, past St Patrick’s Cathedral, Trinity College and the statues surrounding the O’Connell Bridge, then slake your thirst with a pint of Guinness in one of Dublin’s justifiably famous pubs. Come night-time, music and laughter begin to spill out of every warmly lit doorway. Join in the craic, or retire to one of the fabulous foodie restaurants, art cinemas or theatres for an evening of entertainment Dublin-style.

The Liffey River flows straight through the heart of Dublin, running west to east. The city centre is easily explored on foot, as the majority of attractions are clustered not far from the river.

Dubliners have embraced the city’s public bike rental scheme, similar to those found in London or Paris. Currently in its seventh year, a recent expansion means there is now double the amount of Dublinbikes available with 1,500 across 100 stations dotted throughout the city.

For those heading out of the centre, there’s a comprehensive bus network run by Dublin Bus – services usually stop at 11.30pm although there are night buses at weekends – as well as the luas (tram) system, with two lines serving the south and west of the city. A commuter railway known as the DART follows the gentle arc of Dublin Bay, calling at seaside suburbs from Howth in the north to Greystones (County Wicklow) to the south. Taxis are plentiful throughout Dublin.
