Famous for its easygoing charm and cultural heritage, the Irish capital of Dublin is steeped in rich history, starting with the Vikings laying its first streets. An unruly artistic streak (thanks to Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, and Jonathan Swift) and the Irish way of living in the moment (called ‘craic’) has helped shape Dublin into the cosmopolitan city it is today.
Dubliners are pedal pushers. The city has over 120 miles of cycle tracks, and Dublin’s bike scheme has 450 bikes for public use and 40 bike stations around the city. You can cycle from one side of Dublin city to another in half an hour.
Did you know that 10 million pints of Guinness (or as the locals refer to it, “a meal in a cup”!) is produced in Dublin every day? You can smell the hops from many places in the city, and that’s because the traditional stout beer is made in huge quantities at Dublin’s Guinness Storehouse.
Visit the largest walled park in Europe. At 1750 acres, this park is 5x the size of London’s Hyde Park and 2x bigger than NYC’s Central Park.
