Multicultural Capital Dublin
Guinness black stuff
Not many cities can say that they have been invaded by the Normans, Vikings and the British Empire – but Dublin can! Situated on the East Coast of Ireland, it is now known as a multicultural capital due to the influx of immigrants from all over the world, although given it's past it is something which does not come as a surprise to Dubliners.
Like most tourist hotspots, Dublin has many places of interest although what adds to the beauty of visiting these landmarks is that each part has a story to go with it, dating back hundreds of years even to it's present day.
The Templebar area is flooded with tourists day and night, engaging anyone who walks along the cobbled streets to a taste of traditional Irish music, street performers, art displays as well as the chance to eat some Irish stew with a pint of Guinness, Ireland's most popular alcoholic drink, sometimes referred to as "the black stuff".
Not too far away is Trinity College, Ireland's oldest university and also home to the Book of Kells, a spectacular work of art which contains the four Gospels of the New Testament. It is also where famous literary greats such as Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift, Michael Longley and Samuel Beckett attended university.
Grafton Street and Stephen's Green are also within a close vicinity for anyone looking to enjoy some retail therapy or relax in the park whilst watching the world go by. If the concrete jungle beigins to overwhelm you, another area to check out is the Phoenix Park – A 707 hectare park containing Dublin Zoo, as well as the headquarters of the Irish President, it can easily be accessed using public transport and offers some gorgeous landscapes.
