The Irish capital’s Viking roots and proud history are never far from view on Dublin’s streets. Stroll across the iconic Ha’penny Bridge and snap a few photos or people-watch as you walk through a nearby park — Dublin is home to more green spaces than any other European capital city. Dublin has not forgotten its roots and is steeped in a rich cultural heritage that begs to be explored. All year round, the city is alive with music, art and theatre of all kinds and, of course, art galleries and museums abound. it is also the home to a proud history of literature, art and music: James Joyce, William Butler Yeats, Oscar Wilde and Samuel Becket are all Dubliners. All complemented by an impressive range of restaurants, cafés and shops, where people are often surprised by the capital city’s competitiveness and value for money Dublin, and indeed Ireland, have come a long way in 100 years.

Extract from Fodors Travel:
With the Irish food revolution long over and won, Dublin now has a city full of fabulous, hip, and suavely sophisticated restaurants. More realistic rents have seen a new cohort of experimental eateries crop up alongside award-winning Euro-toques and their sous-chefs who continue to come up with new and glorious ways to abuse your waistline. Instead of just spuds, glorious spuds, you’ll find delicious new entries to New Irish cuisine like roast scallops with spiced pork belly and cauliflower au gratin topped with a daring caper-and-raisin sauce or sautéed rabbit loin with Clonakilty black pudding. Okay, there’s a good chance spuds will still appear on your menu—and most likely offered in several different ways.
