There are a few words which you will hear often when staying in Ireland’s capital; ‘Cead mile Fáilte’. If you understand these words you will be smiling. It means ‘one hundred thousand welcomes’ which is quite a greeting for such a busy capital city.
Dublin’s past is rich with seafaring tales and roaring trade and it’s well-known for its role in education and as a forward thinking city. Today it is home to technology giants Google, Facebook and LinkedIn. Perhaps these social business enterprises chose Dublin because of its reputation for entertainment, creativity and friendly people.
Dublin lies on the River Liffey in the arms of the Wicklow Mountains and is sheltered from the rolling waves of the Irish Sea by Dublin Bay. The city has found a way of combining the historical with the contemporary with great success. One moment you can be enjoying Dublin’s grand Norman castle, and then staring at the Spire of Dublin (the modern ‘Monument of Light’ which rises 400 ft. into the sky). Dublin has all the big names for shopping but it also has trendy independent stores hidden down tiny winding streets. You may stop to look around Trinity College and then stumble across the Science Gallery with its changing exhibitions on the latest discoveries, or become absorbed in the 800AD Book of Kells. You can join a cocktail master class or soak up the atmosphere in the bars in Grafton Street and Temple Bar. You can sit back and enjoy the café culture or comedy scene, or head to the city’s largest open space, Phoenix Park, where the President of Ireland has his residence.
Dublin has many more surprises outside its centre. Its position on the water means it’s a hot spot for sailing and windsurfing and the surrounding countryside and mountains are an exciting playground for golfers, hikers and horse riders looking for tranquillity from the lively streets. Dublin is an exciting, diverse, spontaneous city, which welcomes families, couples, friends, business and locals to join in the fun every single day.
