    Dublin, baby

    Dublin is an amazing city. The people are very friendly and helpful. Be sure to get out of Dublin and visit some of Ireland's other beauties. If you don't have time for travelling outside of Dublin, Howth is the perfect place. It's 15 minutes from Dublin by train and it's a whole different experience, but be prepared to walk a lot if you want to see the cliffs

    Insider Tip:You might want to be prepared for any kind of weather. Wear layers in clothes, as the weather can get from cold to hot or vice versa in a matter of minutes. As far as the money is concerned, the alcohol is quite cheap, but the food is pricey. If you are not willing to spend some money, prepare to starve.

    A city by foot

    Dublin is a great town for anybody who likes to walk. It's relatively small and all main attractions are in short distance from each other. The most striking thing about Dublin, in my opinion is the gothic architecture (for example Trinity college or the castle) and the lovely parks (Merrion square and St Stephen's Green) which I highly recommend to visit for a picnic or of that sort.

    Insider Tip:Visit Howth! Take the train for about 30 min from the city. It's an amazing costal village!!

    Dublin - a must visit

    I have now been to 14 cities within europe and 11 different countries. I highly recommend visiting Dublin due to the amazingly friendly people and fun atmosphere. This is a city where everyone feels welcome, all you need to worry about is ordering the next pint. Another great part of this city is the walking proximity of almost all the major sites to see. You can easily walk around the city taking in all there is to offer without spending outrageous amounts of money on transportation (London).

    Insider Tip:Take a tour to Blarney Castle with PaddyWagon, you will not regret the money and time spent doing so.

    I feel the city is definitely dirtier than other areas of the world. Also, the people are a bit more 'tough.' The stereotypes can definitely hold true at times. The city is relatively expensive too for Guinness and less than average food. It's a cool city but I wouldn't rely on spending more than 2 days here unless you plan to get away and golf or see the cliffs.

    Insider Tip:Head to south Dublin. We met locals who took us away from the beaten path. The area was more friendly and cleaner and not too far from the main tourist spots. Copper Jacks was a cool local spot and there were a lot of clubs nearby. I would definitely go with a local though.
