I'm planning a weekend jog to burn off some of the Guinness but it won't be long before I'll sip another pint and compare its quality to the Dublin served version (they say the closer the pint is consumed to the Guinness Storehouse the better the quality and that it doesn't travel so well).
I really just wanted to summarise the stand-out reasons to visit Dublin (not that many need convincing) having seen it in full-party swing:
1) Dublin is one of the smallest city centres I've been to - with all it's major attractions easily reached on foot. It has a young, vibrant population with 50% of Dubliners under the age of 30 so the social and nightlife scene is very lively, encompassing over 900 bars
2) For the more discerning/of literary interest there are plenty of museums, libraries, theatres and arthouses covering the works of world-renowned Irish legends James Joyce, George Bernard Shaw and Oscar Wilde.
3) Perhaps most importantly of all, Dubliners are friendly and welcoming and keen to party with you - a vital ingredient for any backpacker's city break stay.
Thanks again Hostelworld.com for the opportunity.
