Groupon’s Guide To Dublin
Nestled on Ireland’s east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey, Dublin attracts travellers with the elegance of the old stone bridges, cobbled alleyways, Georgian avenues and scenic city parks such as St Stephen’s Green and Phoenix Park with Dublin Zoo. Culinary options span the globe with various cuisine served in numerous restaurants, while bars serve an array of beverages, including the iconic Guinness beer.
History enthusiasts can pay a visit to the iconic 13th-century Dublin Castle and the medieval St Patrick’s Cathedral, while the National Museum of Ireland provides more insight into Irish heritage and culture. Those with an eye for architecture can take a stroll by the Fitzwilliam and Merrion Squares, where redbrick terraces, brightly coloured doorways, and detailed pillars stand for Dublin’s Georgian heritage. For trips off the beaten track, skipping the usual crowds at Temple Bar and taking a stroll around the quieter parts of the local area will take visitors to a portal of arts, music, and literature at Trinity College with its 18th-century Old Library, an ode to knowledge dominated by impressively musty books and busts of Western writers and philosophers.
