Residing in a wide bay, Dublin lies between Howth in the north and the headland of Dalkey to the south. The River Liffey, which flows into the harbor, slices the city in two. Several bridges span the north-south divide, the most famous of which is O’Connell Bridge. Pre-independence Dublin was once the second city of the British Empire, the graceful Georgian architecture and picturesque parks bearing testament to a troubled legacy.
Dublin has a fantastic nightlife and its pub-to-person ratio is the envy of many cities. There’s a veritable hub of bars for music fans, some of which are live music venues linked with traditional bars. The Temple Bar area is the place to be seen, with a vast concentration of both clubs and trendy pre-club bars to get you in the mood for a night on the dance-floor. There’s always something new to check out – you’ll never get bored in Dublin.
