Home of the Guinness Storehouse

Aug 18, 2007
Dublin is the third smallest county in Ireland, but it is home to a third of the country's population. The city looks like the old grey town of Europe, but do not be fooled.

Dublin is one of Europe's most popular destinations especially for short breaks. Dublin is still the place for hen and stag nights, and surprise, given the unique blend of cheap air connections, limitless alcohol, constant party atmosphere, splendid venues and warm clientele that exists in the heart of the much-loved Irish capital.

Shopping in Dublin is a pleasurable. O'Connell Street is the main street in the city. Although there are not many shops on the street itself, in Henry Street and Talbot Street, which are off just O'Connell Street, there are a large number of shops such as Roches Stores, Dunnes Stores, Boyers and Arnotts. The city also has a few small markets in the city. The Liberty market is the most famous of these. It is located just near Christ Church.

The city is not short of its pubs. There is over a 100 pubs. The Temple bar area is a famous area. Temple bar is centrally located. It is by far the most popular place with tourists when it comes to night life. There are about 24 bars and 73 restaurants and cafes in in the area.

The International Dance Festival is held every year between April and May and is held in the city centre. This action packed two weeks, celebrating contemporary dance from all over the world. It is a special festival of dance featuring top companies and performers displaying abstract contemporary, ballet, tap dancing, hip-hop and Chinese calligraphy.

A high point of any trip to Dublin is a visit to the home of Guinness. At the Guinness Storehouse you will discover all there is to know about the world famous beer. It is a story that began over 250 years ago and ends in Gravity, the sky bar, with a complimentary pint of Guinness and a view of Dublin City

Dublin Castle formerly the seat of British power in Ireland, and efficiently infiltrated by spies during the Michael Collins times, this is a collection of very fine 18th-century administrative buildings built on a medieval plan of two courtyards. A statue of Justice stands over the main entrance. She stands with her back to the city, wears no blindfold and her scales tilt when filled with rain.
