Dublin - Father Mathew Bridge

Father Matthew Bridge, Dublin

Dublin is a famous gateway to Ireland, so aside from its nightlife venues and vibrancy, many international travelers have noticed that there is an abundance of travel attractions in the capital itself.

The city could be toured on foot, and one particular landmark you ought to check out is the Christ Church Cathedral, which is the most ancient structure in the city. You could sightsee in this 11th-century-old building for €6.

On the other hand, you can also see the sights in the numerous refined and somewhat upscale suburbs in the city so that you could further acknowledge the real identity and heritage of Dublin. If not, you could always follow what Daily Mail UK Travel writer Andrea Catherwood did as she explored Dublin on foot (“The Craic is Back: The Boom Years are Over and Dublin has Recaptured its Friendly Charm”).

Below is a snippet of her travel article:

A great way to explore the city on foot is to take a literary walking tour – there is a wealth of these year round… You can visit the Abbey Theatre, originally run by W.B. Yeats, where J.M. Synge’s The Playboy Of The Western World caused riots when it was first performed, and Trinity College, which educated many of Ireland’s literary greats from Jonathan Swift to Wilde. Then settle in for pint of Guinness in McDaid’s, the watering hole of choice for Irish writers such as Patrick Kavanagh, Flann O’Brien and Brendan Behan… But a more contemporary slice of Dublin literary life is found a few miles out of the city centre, past those elegant streets and squares of Georgian architecture, that were built when Dublin was a great city of the Empire.
