Overview

A travel plan to the Irish capital isn’t just about Guinness and flute ditties—but that’s certainly part of the fun. Beyond the commercial breweries, distilleries, and stomping dancers, Dublin holds a rich cultural history that stretches all the way back to the ninth century. Centuries-old bridges have served as inspiration to Dublin’s generations of literary geniuses, and medieval relics still lie behind the castle walls waiting to inspire a new generation of onlookers. If you look for them, there are even monuments of charismatic statesmen pockmarked with bullet holes: reminders of the long struggle for independence. It's a city that broods with its history. 

Today, Dublin’s population is young, vibrant, and diverse. The energy is palpable: punk rock bands headline next to pubs hosting traditional Irish bands playing equally quintessential ballads. This vast energy has become a huge lure for immigrants, who happily serve foods from their homeland, creating a colorful, ever-evolving palate just under the city's stunning cobblestone facade. Experiencing Dublin requires an open mind, a sturdy pair of shoes, and a willingness to get a little lost; there are few better ways to feel this city's history than wandering its streets and bridges. And even though things are a bit expensive here, it's a small price to pay for what you are able to experience: a city brimming with culture—both international and Irish—that's begging to get lost in. And whether you hole up in a pub that you may never be able to find again or simply meander the Liffey, a walk through Dublin is a walk that won't be forgotten.
