Dublin Tours with Great British Trips
Dublin has become one of Europe's most desirable places to visit for holidays and short weekend breaks and is often referred as the "Europe's friendliest city ". The city of Dublin has had a rich and varied history: it has played host to the early Celts, Christian monastic settlements, the Vikings, the Normans and Cromwellians... to name a few! Evidence of this can be found in every corner of the city. From a cultural point of view that means plenty for visitors to see, from historic sites and landmarks to famous monuments and museums. But modern day Dublin mostly dates from the 17th century, with a presence of fine Georgian architecture throughout the city. Dublin is a compact City and most of the visitor attractions are within walking distance of each other. Temple Bar is one of the most famous areas of the city; it is famed for its fun pubs and great party atmosphere. A walk through its narrow cobbled thoroughfares will reveal a huge array of funky establishments and independent businesses, from boho cafés to vintage and speciality shops, piercing and tattoo artists to second-hand music stores.
