The largest and most exciting city on the East coast of Ireland is Dublin, a city whose highlights include a Latin Quarter, Temple Bar for lively nightlife, Viking history, the National Museum, the Book of Kells, and Christchurch and St. Patrick's Cathedrals.
Suffice to say there’s plenty for the visitor to take in, from eating out, to taking in some of the world’s oldest and most fascinating architecture and sites. There are tons of pubs and restaurants to choose from ranging from trendy hotspots, such as Elephant & Castle, Tante Zoe's, Yamamori Noodles and the Chameleon which offer a range of different cuisine.
Follow up with a visit to one of Dublin’s famous pubs or bars, like The Temple Bar Pub for lively crowds, the Bailey and the Front Lounge to check out Dublin’s chicer crowd, or, for those seeking the comforts of a traditional boozer, The Stag's Head Mulligan's or Kehoe's. Those seeking fine dining should visit the Georgian area for a table at Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, L'Ecrivain, and La Stampa - all internationally acclaimed eateries. There is just too much to do in Dublin.
Areas of historical interest include Newgrange, the Hill of Tara and Glendalough. Meanwhile College Green is home to the Bank of Ireland and Trinity College, where you can view the Book of Kells. Dublin Castle, Phoenix Park and the National Museum all something to offer the most diverse range of interests.
