Our guide to Dublin

Dublin is famous for its creative sons and daughters and throughout the city you’ll find traces of these everywhere in the city. Visit Merrion Square to see the painted statue of the even more colourful Oscar Wilde, which faces the playwright’s former house. Trace the footsteps of James Joyce through the equally famous pubs of the Temple Bar area, where you can also sample some live local folk music, and then visit the Dublin Writers Museum or go on a guided tour through the city, to fully explore the rich cultural texture that adorns the city. 
   The city is also the birthplace of the legendary ‘black stuff’ - Guinness. A tour of the Guinness Storehouse will fill you in on the background of the murky stout and end with a free pint at the top of the building, from where you can gaze across the capital and plan your further exploration of Dublin. The capital has lots of green spaces that open up different facets of the city. The beautiful 1,752-acre Phoenix Park is both home to the Dublin Zoo, as well as the Irish president’s house, which was the model building for the White House in Washington DC. Stroll through the park for a tranquil escape from the verve of the centre, and then head north to the Botanical Gardens and the Glasnevin Cemetery, where you’ll find the tombs of legendary historical figures, like Michael Collins, Eamon de Valera and Bobby Sands. For a completely different type of park, head to the stadium of Croke Park, where you can experience an Irish passion that is only rivalled by their love of music and good craic: rugby and hurling. Catch a game, cheering for the local team before heading back into central Dublin for a meal at one of the great restaurants that are found along the river banks.  End the day with a pint in the Brazen Head Pub, which is Dublin’s oldest pub. With over 900 years to its name, this place will offer you the perfect backdrop to experience everything that makes Dublin an enchanting holiday destination.
