Whether you love fast thrills and slow food, or the other way round, this is one of Europe’s great cities for indulging your passions. The best of Dublin is reflected in the vibrant cultural scene, the street markets and, most of all, in the people themselves. Dublin is like a favourite friend – it doesn’t matter how long it’s been since you’ve seen them, they always look good and have a sackful of new stories to tell. You have the best times with them.
It’s a fabulous place to explore whatever time of year you go – the parks in spring bloom, the waterside on hot summer days, cafés and bars on autumn nights and in the full sparkle of wintertime. In fact, you couldn’t pick a better place to be in December, when the locals put on a party like no other: the three-day New Year’s Festival Dublin.
