Dublin Bay, with its great sweep of coast from the rocky brow of Howth in the north to the headland of Dalkey in the south, is a fitting introduction to one of Europe’s finest capitals. The city is spread over the broad valley of the River Liffey, with the Wicklow Hills sheltering it on the south. In addition to its splendid public buildings, Dublin is particularly rich in domestic architecture of the 128th century. Fine Georgian mansions, many of them with historical association, lend sober beauty to the city’s wide streets and spacious squares.
There is a wealth of interest for the visitor to Dublin in its architecture, its fashionable shopping centres, its wide range of entertainment and important events. The beautiful surroundings of the city are very easy to get to; a short journey brings one to a pleasant beach or to the Dublin Mountains
The County of Dublin now barely contains the growing Capital City. A city with a wealth of attractions. Famous for writers, poets and musicians, Dublin is also home for The Book of Kells, the beautifully decorated early christian manuscript and “Guinness” the world famous black beer which is made at St. James Gate Brewery in the heart of the city and the biggest brewery site in Europe. The Hop Store now houses the World of Guinness exhibition.
