Once a proud but poor city perched on the edge of Europe, today Dublin is bustling and booming. Waves of construction have reconfigured the city, and immigrants have arrived in unprecedented numbers, lending a cosmopolitan air.
Dublin City Guide Introduction
Amid all this change, though, charming, literary, beer-happy Dublin still thrives. While Temple Bar takes the tourist cake, places of interest can be found throughout, from excellent museums to stately Georgian architecture to meticulously landscaped parks. And then of course, there are the affable, witty, and oh-so-fun Dubliners themselves. Who wouldn’t want to share a pint of Guinness with them?
