Life in Dublin
Dublin is a beautiful, cultural city full of characters. There’s always craic to be had, and you are never more than a stone’s throw away from nature. From catching a live band in one of the hundreds of pubs, walking the wicklow way or checking out the Dublin food scene, you will not be short of things to see and do. The bricks and mortar of Dublin’s streets provide the stage to what is a truly great city, a city built on hundreds of years of history and culture. But the heart of Dublin is made from the people who call it their home. Both new and old Dubliners alike bring the city to life. The warmth, the welcome and the wit applied to daily life have made Dubliners known the world over and truly make it one of the best places to live in.
Peter O’ Toole was once asked what was his favourite Irish food: “My number one choice is Guinness. My number two choice would be Guinness. My number three choice would have to be Guinness.”
Dublin is truly a global city, and while walking around the streets you will hear the many languages of a new Dublin. These new influences and adopted voices now play a role in defining the multi-faceted culture which resides in Dublin today. Through this mixture of new and old you will find a Dublin which has grown into the cosmopolitan and vibrant city it is today; a city proud of its rich past but continuously striving towards the future.
