Dublin looks at first glance like a fairly modern city. Founded by Vikings over 1,000 years ago (you can see the archaeological evidence, at the Dublinia Museum), the Irish capital feels like a mythic place. While you won't see the historic buildings of many other European cities, the charm of the Irish capital lies in it culture and people. Duck into one of Dublin's 600+ pubs to hear an Irish music jam session. A literary city like no other, experience Dublin literature on a literary pub crawl or visit museums dedicated to the written word. Interested in medieval illustrated manuscripts? Check out the Book of Kells at Trinity College. Want something a little more recent? The Bram Stoker Museum showcases the life of the Dracula author. Of ... Read more
course, Ireland wouldn’t be the same without its beer or whiskey, so a sojourn to the Guinness Storehouse or the Old Jamestown Distillery is a highlight. Keep up the partying in the restaurants and bars of Dublin's vibrant Temple Bar district, where you can sleep in a hotel owned by members of U2.
Dublin’s reputation for being rainy is true, though not for the amount of precipitation it gets (which is actually less than London), but rather for the number of days that see at least some drizzle. So no matter when you travel, bring a sturdy umbrella, as strong winds often piggyback on the rain. There are three main periods of the year when tourism sees a rise: Christmas, when the city comes alive with a festive spirit; St. Patrick’s Day, with plenty of parades and all-night parties; and the summer, when temperatures get up into the 60s (15-20C) and residents and tourists alike swarm the outdoor cafes and revel in the numerous festivals that fill the cultural calendar. Bring layers, as even the summer can see dips into the 40s (7-9C) at ... Read more

Dublin is a lot of fun! There is so much to do here and it is really easy to get around by walking or just grabbing a taxi. Do not miss going to Trinity College Library to see the Book of Kells, and then there is Guiness, Jameson, and lots of pubs to check out. The people of Dublin are very friendly and will help you out if you get lost.

I've been traveling world a lot and have to say that Dublin is ugliest,most boring and even disgusting capital city in Europe! Ugly mix of colonial English architecture with modern nonsense of what is called architecture.
As for native inhabitants-double faced [hypocritical],self-centered-materialistic racists who value only personal comfort and do not accept anything what is not related to Irish 'culture'. The bright example of what does happen when cave men makes illogical jump straight to the 21st century.
One can make short visit to this place,but living here could turn in never ending suffer.

Dublin is a charming city you'll enjoy just as much for its people as you will for its food and atmosphere. Speaking of food, head to Sophie's for an incredible meal with an unbeatable view or The Pig's Ear for great grub. If you're fighting off jet lag, sneak over to 3FE for the best coffee I've ever encountered in Dublin. Other than that, wander around Trinity's gorgeous campus, see the castle and stroll across the bridges, but don't you dare forget to strike up a conversation with a stranger. It could be one of the most memorable parts of your trip. An easy afternoon getaway is Howth (just about a 30 minute train ride from Connolly Station) for fresh seafood, a nice hike and some fresh salty air.
