The city has been hailed as the friendliest city in Europe not once, but twice and with over 3 million people visiting Dublin each year it has earned its title as the “City of A Thousand Welcomes”.
Describing Dublin, Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2015 says: “The diaspora has turned inside out and Dublin is now a truly cosmopolitan capital, with an influx of people, energy and ideas infusing the ever-beguiling, multi-layered city with fresh flavours and kaleidoscopic colours.”
Dublin has a huge amount to offer travellers, the book highlights: “Meet the perfect stranger through the Little Museum's brilliant City of a Thousand Welcome's initiative, where an ordinary Dubliner will tell you about their home town over a free drink in a local pub. Follow the Independence Trail around key sites where nation-forming events took place…Plunge into the Irish Sea at the Forty Foot in Sandycove, or nurse a deep dark pint fireside in Mulligan's on Poolbeg St, where the atmosphere is as potent as the stout.”
The inspirational travel guide promotes Dublin as a city that “should be on every traveller's must-see list”. Dublin has got something for everyone – History, Culture, Art, Nature, Literature and most importantly a buzzing atmosphere everywhere you go.
