Even if you’ve never fancied Guinness before, there’s something in the Dublin air that compels you to sip a sample of Ireland’s most legendary liquid.
This dynamic European capital’s history stretches back 1000 years and Viking, Medieval and Georgian legacies live on. The UNESCO World Heritage-site at Boyne Valley actually predates the pyramids of Egypt, and the city itself has a long association with literary giants and musical luminaries. There are eerie reminders of Ireland’s turbulent past in Kilmainham Gaol, now a museum, and at Malahide Castle, there’s not one but five ghosts on the prowl! You can easily fill your days with castles, museums and art galleries.
