Dublin - a Cultural Hotspot
There's so much to see and do in Dublin that short weekend breaks cannot do it justice! I mean where do you start? At the Guinness Brewery (and the Gravity bar for a tasting afterwards), do you explore Trinity College and the rather magnificent Book of Kells, or do you wander the nightlife precinct around Temple Bar? We say get up at dawn and do all you can - but that's just us.
Dublin is home to the real deal - Irish themed pubs that make all those pale imitations back at home seem, well, rather pale. Dublin is full of parks and gardens and it's full of the Irish. Are there friendlier folk on the planet? After time spent in Dublin, you'll think not. Dublin is relatively small so you can make your way around quite easily. It's a small city of about 1,000,000 people and almost every single one will give you directions if you ask.
There's plenty of good food at reasonable prices and not-so-reasonable prices, and there's a pub on every second street corner, making it ideal for New Year breaks! Ireland is famous for its culture and you can do a literary themed pub crawl, as well as a 'normal' one. There are at least three very decent galleries, and the tourist bus tour of Dublin is well worth the time and money. Cheap weekend breaks are very easy in Dublin.
