Why Visit Dublin, Ireland

The capital of Ireland, glorious Dublin, is situated on the shores of the picturesque bay on the east coast of the country. Leprechauns, exceptional beer, and St. Patric's Day are just the first associations with this amazing city. In reality, Dublin keeps a lot more secrets to share with those, wishing to get to know the true Irish soul.

The first settlement on the place of Dublin was founded by the Vikings in 841 who named it "Dubh Linn" ("The Black Pool"). And now the city with more than a thousand-year history is considered to be one of the richest cities in the world. Nowadays, Dublin is the main harbor and city in the country as well as one of the safest towns in Europe. But what are the must-sees of Dublin you have to visit?

The good news is that it is not a huge city so the popular sights are not located far from each other. The first symbolic place to check out during your Dublin tour is the medieval Dublin Castle, unofficially considered to be the main landmark of the city. As any historic edifice of that scale, the Castle, built in the 13th century by the order of the English King John Lackland, is set in the very heart of the city and enjoys impressive popularity among tourists.

To continue the list of the classics, any Dublin travel should definitely include the visit to the National Museum of Ireland, where you'll be able to immerse into the history, art, and culture of Ireland.

Among the other Dublin attractions you may be interested to add to your Dublin itinerary are: the Christ Church Cathedral, St Patrick's Cathedral, St Stephen's Green, the Powerscourt Estate, as well as the National Botanic Gardens.

There's no doubt that any Dublin travel would be incomplete without trying the legendary Irish whiskey "Jameson" and the world-known beer "Guinness" in one of the cozy local pubs.
For sure it's impossible to share the whole charms of sights and activities that Dublin may offer to its visitors in a single post but we hope we managed to inspire you to plan a trip to Ireland and explore its gem - fabulous Dublin.
