Tourist information and destination rating

Category: Cities, Local time: 07:58:28, Official WWW website:

Dublin, the largest and capital city of Ireland, lies on the River Liffey (or Sniffy Liffey as the Dubs would say). The river divides Dublin into north and south but the two parts are connected by the Ha'Penny Bridge and other bridges. The rapidly growing city is the historic heart of the land and a modern cosmopolitan city in one. Most of its sought monuments, popular pubs and quality shops are within walking distance. Out of the many unique sights, let's mention e.g. Dublin Castle , Trinity College with the famous Book of Kells, Temple Bar, the distinctive Needle and the Christ Church Cathedral (actually, there are three cathedrals in Dublin). If you travel with children, you can take them to Leprechaun Museum , Dublin Children's Museum or to the Dublin Zoo. Discovering Dublin, keep your eyes open for the statues (there are extremely many, not just the popular Molly Malone).

Dublin is the capital of Ireland. Ireland is a land of harsh men,nature and whisky. First mention about Dublin comes from 140A.D. The city was called Eblana in this time. In the 10th centrury there were two settlements- Viking neighbourhood and Keltic colony. In Viking neighbourhood there was established the cathedral Christ Church in 1030. At the beginning of 13th century Dublin castle was built. In the second half of the 17th century the backsides of houses were rebuilt as faces of buildings. This reconstruction led to typical dublin´s quays. Today´s form of the central city is from the fist half of the 18th century. City is located on the both sides of river Liffey. Over the river there were built 14 bridges. These bridges are the symbol of Dublin. The oldest bridge is Mellows Bridge from 1786. The youngest bridge is Millenium bridge from 1984. In Dublin you can find the biggest park- Phoenix. It covers an area of 7,1 square kilometres. In Dublin you can also visit the traditional whisky stillroom. It is also interesting to visit Guinness brewery. Part of this viewing is beer tasting. The main tourist resort is fashion- and art section named Temple Bar. Here you find typical irish pubs. Famous group U2 started its career in Temple Bar. The most important dublin´s monuments are St.Patrick cathedral, Dublin castle, The Mansion House palace, Leinster House palace, The Customs House, Old Parliament or National Museum. In Dublin there is the first irish university called Trinity College. It was established in the 16th century. In its centre there is a very interesting library with 200 000 volumes. The best known is Book from Kells. This book belongs to the oldest in the world. Many important characters spent their time in Dublin such as Jonathan Shift, G.B.Shaw, Oscar Wild or James Joyce. In local National Gallery there are some of Rembrant´s, Tizian´s or Picasso´s pictures.

Dublin is special. Nowhere else you would see so many statues which are not just decorations but they make perfect sense, they are useful...like the bench at Temple Bar which will tell you where exactly you are and why, like the two lady shoppers with the bags - in fact, the seats for tired children..
