A nice and laid-back getaway city
Dublin has everything one could ask for: a nice city centre, nice bars, nice beer, nice people. Not having returned to the city for ten years I was quite surprised to see how things have changed, aesthetically for the better, although it is a lot more expensive today than before. The landscapes and smaller town surrounding the city are really nice and good places to wander around in the day before going to the pub at night to get drunk. It is the perfect place for a good weekend abroad.
Insider Tip:Escape from the city centre (especially after a rough night out and with a hangover) and catch a bus to Dun Laoghaire, the port at the South of Dublin, from there you can walk to the sea front, to Dalkey with its small town vibe, and to Killiney, with its huge mansions, its magnificent bay and its amazing (but steep!) park.
