Dublin the friendly
This city welcomes you with open arms. Profoundly human and rich with its ancient culture, Dublin is an engagingly open and accessible city. Between the north and south banks of the river Liffey, a plane ticket to Dublin will take you into the heart of Ireland, where life is good.
The Irish capital is a city on a human scale, best explored on foot, as your Dublin travel guide will recommend. Begin your trip on the south bank with Trinity College. Founded in the sixteenth century, this university will enchant you with its elegant buildings, its charming cobbled courtyard, its splendid gardens and its impressive Old Library. This hallowed literary setting is home to one book in particular from the Middle Ages, the Book of Kells. Take advantage of a flight to Dublin to discover one of the most beautiful parks in the city, St Stephen's Green, or marvel at the 11,000 works of art from the National Gallery. It is home to the majority of Irish paintings, spanning from the seventeenth century to the present.
Stroll along the banks of the Liffey and admire the typical eighteenth century Georgian architecture. Then head towards the popular neighborhood of Liberties and discover the brewing secrets of the famous stout at the Guinness Storehouse. A visit to the Kilmainham prison is both exciting and historically enriching. Your wanderings on the south bank will inevitably end in the trendy Temple Bar district to enjoy a drink in a famous pub such as the Brazen Head.
With your plane ticket to Dublin, kick off a visit of the north bank with the imposing General Post Office and its statue of Cuchulainn, famous hero of Irish mythology. Discover all the cultural wealth of Dublin in the Hugh Lane Gallery of Modern Art with its surprising reconstruction of Francis Bacon's workshop, as well as the magnificent Collins Barracks museum of decorative arts
