Perched at the mouth of the River Liffey, Dublin has long been the cultural and administrative centre of the Republic of Ireland. It is a sprawling port town with a relaxed air and a pleasantly low-rise architecture. Your visit should take in the Temple Bar – a bustling riverside area that is a hotbed of music, bars and restaurants as well as hosting boutique shops selling all kinds of fashions, art and designs crafted by local artisans. It’s a lot of fun. There are also many famous old buildings for you to explore. These include the 13th-century Dublin Castle and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which dates back to 1191.
Typical food and drink in Ireland
A traditional Irish breakfast is a thing of wonder and can set you up so well that you don’t need to eat again for a long, long time. It contains varying combinations of bacon, eggs, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes and potato cakes, and is usually served with some delicious Irish soda bread with lashings of butter. Ireland is also famous for its marvellously velvety stout beers, which come in a surprising number of varieties. Be sure to give them a try.
