To visit Ireland’s capital city is to visit a place rich in history and culture and one
which prides itself with a long tradition in music, theatre and literature. To truly
experience Dublin is to immerse yourself in its rich, vibrant and absorbing culture!
While Dublin is renowned for its excellent architecture, art, nightlife and culture there are also many other wonderful sights and sounds to behold throughout the region. From the hustle and bustle of Moore Street to the elegance of Merrion Square to the ruggedness of Ireland’s Eye, something new and different awaits you around every corner!
For art lovers a visit to The National Gallery, home to one of Europe’s premier collections, and the Irish Museum of Modern Art housed in the magnificent Royal Hospital building, are not to be missed and a great way to take in the city’s and country’s artistic heritage. For a window into the artistic treasures of the great cultures and religions of the world visit The Chester Beatty Library, the European Museum of the Year 2002. Impressionist masterpieces by Renoir, Degas, Monet, Morisot as well as the largest public collection of 20th century Irish art, and more, can be viewed at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh
Lane. The Gallery celebrates its centenary this year and is hosting a rich program of events, open days and exhibitions, all worth a visit if time permits.
The Abbey Theatre, the national theatre, is a great place to take in an authentic Irish stage performance. The Gate Theatre, the city’s most elegant theatre, housed in a late 18th century building has been artistically and architecturally, a landmark building for over 200 years and continues to offer a stimulating and classical program, appealing to theatre-goers of all generations. If you are looking for a musical, opera, ballet or drama then The Gaiety Theatre and The Olympia Theatre in the city centre and the Civic Theatre or the Draíocht Theatre in the suburbs are just some of the many options open to you.
For those who prefer outdoor pursuits Dublin has a lot to offer. The magnificent coastline and mountains, just minutes away from the city centre, provide a variety of activities including sailing, fishing, windsurfing, kayaking, cycling and walking.
Irish Traditional Music and Dance is an intrinsic part of the cultural life of Dublin. The sights and sounds of Traditional Irish Music and Dance can be experienced throughout the city all year round. From impromptu sessions in one of the many traditional Irish Pubs to a night of foot-stomping, fast paced music and dance in one of many top Traditional music and Dance Venues, Dublin truly has something to offer everyone!
A warm welcome awaits sports enthusiasts of all descriptions to the Dublin region, whether you are an avid walker, a Golf fanatic or just fancy a relaxing break. Dubliners are big sports fans and throughout the year visitors can experience the passion of a Gaelic Games match in Croke Park, the thrill of a race meeting in Leopardstown, the excitement of a rugby or soccer match or the splendour of one of it’s 60 magnificent Golf Courses.
Shopping If you love shopping then you are going to fall in love with Dublin!
No matter where you go, you will never be far from temptation. And the beauty of Dublin is that it is big enough to offer distinct shopping districts which are small enough to explore on foot! Grafton Street and Henry Street are the
main pedestrianised shopping thoroughfares. Henry Street offers the best choice in high street fashion and popular Irish chain stores and is where Arnott’s, one of Dublin’s best loved department stores, can be found.
Dublin needs suitably hip venues for her film premieres, post-concert parties, major sporting and cultural events, and she has no shortage. At night-time the streets are alive with the partying classes conducting their own little pub-crawls.
If you want an evening in the old style with traditional Irish food, music and some
Irish dancing, you’re spoilt for choice.
What about a huge luxuriant late bar with cocktails, imported beer and music
you can’t stop bopping to…
Then on to a club of your choice – pop, R&B, seventies disco, salsa, jazz, alternative, or all of above. Trendy, beautiful, student-friendly, it’s all possible!
