It makes sense to visit Dublin from April to October, when you can take advantage of the best weather. July and August are the busiest months. However, the city is becoming more and more popular destination throughout the year due to numerous festivals, cultural, religious and sport events.
The main Dublin’s attractions include the Temple Bar, the early medieval Christchurch Cathedral (the oldest building in the city), Phoenix Park (the largest urban park in Europe), the National Museum of Ireland and the National Gallery of Ireland. Dublin is also famous for its literary tradition. It has been home to many well-known writers such as Jonathan Swift, James Joyce and William Butler Yeats.
In this century Dublin doesn’t rest on the laurels of its rich cultural heritage. Alongside the smoky old bars, the historical museums and the folk music in the pubs, there is a new Dublin of vibrant night clubs, designer shops and young people - an image that is being promoted by popular musicians like U2, Westlife and the Corrs.
