A little bit about the city: Dublin

Dublin has with a complex history of religion, war and national pride meaning this city isn’t short of a backstory to learn about. Noted as a city on the rise, new hotels, cafes and restaurants are constantly popping up meaning there is always somewhere new to explore in the Irish capital. St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday now celebrated across the globe; however, Dublin is the true hub of the celebrations with over 100,000 visitors expected to travel to the city this year for the festivities. After the St. Patrick’s Day parade, Dubliners hit the pubs, and with over 750 in the city, you are certainly spoilt for choice on where to get your next pint. In terms of getting around, this compact city has a number of options.

Dublin is ideal for cycling due to its flat ground and growing system of cycle lanes, with the city’s bicycle rental scheme ‘Dublinbikes’ making this an efficient and healthy way to get around. However, if cycling isn’t your thing, the city also offers extensive bus, train and tram travel with tap-on, tap-off cards deeming these modes of public transport quick and efficient.
