If you want to visit a city that oozes charm and typical Irish spirit, then Dublin is for you. Generations of inhabitants have made this city a contender for the title of the greatest city in Europe and it's easy to see why. Great jumbles of architecture and people mix together to create this captivating city that's never short on fun and has all the trappings of a great holiday destination.
Dublin itself is divided by the River Liffey. The North is home to O'Connell Street, the main thoroughfare, which is then intersected by many shop-lined streets, ideal for a day spent shopping. Plenty of restaurants are scattered around here too and you're sure to find a typical Irish pub to drink into the late hours. The architecture is diverse - many buildings were demolished to remove signs of British imperialism, to be replaced with modernist office blocks and flats. It is this unique mix of architecture that gives Dublin its special appeal to tourists and locals alike. Further south you're likely to find a great number of attractions such as Christ Church and St.Patrick's Cathedrals and other cultural exhibits.
Dublin holds the key to Ireland's literary spirit and is the base for many of Ireland's Nobel Prize Award for Literature winners. Experience what inspired these writer's masterpieces and perhaps discover your own muse in Trinity College's old library. A beautiful building packed to the brim with books, the most notable being one of the world's oldest manuscripts, the Book of Kells. Visit on June the 16th to experience Bloomsday - a festival dedicated to James Joyce's famous masterpiece, Ulysses. Masses of Victorian-clothed people gather in the city and bring the book to life.
Those who like their adventure less imaginary can head towards Dublin Zoo, the most visited attraction in Ireland. With around one million visitors every year there is certainly something attractive about this park, which remains one of the world's oldest zoos. 600 exotic animals live on the 70-acre site, including zebras, giraffes, gorillas and pandas to name a few. Plenty of facilities are available for solo visitors or their families and a great number of car parks mean that driving there is easy. Its sheer size also means that you're probably likely to see some new arrivals at the Zoo, no matter when you visit.
Part of Dublin's appeal is the beauty of the area itself. Beautiful Irish scenery is seamlessly strewn about the city in the variety of parks available, the largest being Phoenix Park, and popular golf courses of international renown. If this doesn't satisfy your green fingers than the National Botanic Gardens should be your next stop. Boasting an arboretum, sensory garden, rock garden and many large ponds all within greenhouses, it is a perfect place to visit at any time of year and is within driving distance of the city centre.
