Dublin is the major entry point for visitors to Ireland.
The city is large compared to the size of the country and
the River Liffey runs through the centre
cutting the city into North side and South side. There are
nine bridges crossing the Liffey including two pedestrian
spans. Dublin city centre is compact and easily lends to strolling
around on foot as many of the major sights are in this central
part between the two canals. From cathedrals, monasteries,
the birthplace of writers, wonderful Georgian buildings and
squares, more modern buildings, the egnimatic Dublin Spire
and so on so there is a lot to see in Dublin.
Just outside Dublin in the adjoining counties
there is also much to see and you might like to take a trip
out to the wonderful mountains that circle Dublin or down
to the Wicklow to the Wicklow mountains where you can enjoy
lovely nature walks and hikes along the Wicklow Way. Or you
might want to make a trip to the Hill of Tara, the site of
one of the most ancient civilizations in Europe.
