Dublin City Reviews

    Great people and nightlife

    Absolutely loved my stay in Dublin. People there are super nice and open to talking and helping anyone. There's always a pub open playing good live music and providing good food and drinks for a reasonable price. I've stayed near the city center I guess, so there were some tourist traps there. There's a fair amount of sightseeing to do, the best of them being Howth - great place near the coast with amazing views to the Irish sea and the city.

    Insider Tip:Stay away from the Temple Bar area. Many pubs there are overpriced and even raise prices as the night goes on.

    a great place to learn history and have fun

    The city offers many history and cultural related tours. The historical center is not too large, so it can be explored almost entirely on foot. Young people seem to love the city. I believe that anyone who goes to Ireland should spend at least a few days in Dublin, as a good and important introduction to the country's history.

    Insider Tip:For those who are into history, a visit to the Book of Kells exhibition at Trinity College - Dublin is a must.

    Must do on a trip to England or Europe.

    The Irish are a welcoming and rowdy group, happy to share a beer and the pub. There are thousands of pubs around Dublin serving local beer, Irish stew, and fish and chips. At night, join a pub crawl or make your way to the famous temple bar area for live music.

    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!!
