While Dublin may be one of Europe’s smaller capital cities, it has a deserved reputation as a tourist destination, offering visitors a unique mixture of culture, heritage and hospitality. It is now one of the most popular destination in Europe, behind only London, Paris and Rome. Over recent decades, the presence of a vast number of international businesses has made Dublin one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe.

Dublin first became a major city in the 9th century when it was settled by the Vikings.  You will find traces of various influences in the centuries that followed in the various castles, cathedrals and other public building that were built over time. In particular Dublin was a major Georgian city of the British Empire and the evidence of that remains today. The history of Dublin is told through the various museums dotted around the city.

Once you are finished your sightseeing where better to rest your tired feet than in one of the thousands of pubs throughout the City – an excellent place to meet the locals. The City’s cosmopolitan population also ensures a wide range of choice in terms of restaurants.

Dublin Airport is well served by cities in the UK, Europe and Worldwide. Flight prices are quite reasonable, with Aer Lingus and Ryanair offering the most frequent and best value connections from the UK and Europe. Many European and US Airlines also operate direct flights to Dublin. Emirates, Etihad, British Airways, KLM, Lufthansa and SAS provide the best connections from locations that are not served by direct flights to Dublin.
