Dublin, Ireland

The mysterious land of castles and leprechauns, wonderful Ireland is, indeed, the enigma you would like to discover! And you will definitely find no better place to start your journey than Dublin. The magnificent Irish capital ideally reflects the national character, embodied in the wonderful historic legacy and, above all, the genuine locals who radiate the undisguised pride of their country. Founded by the Vikings in the 9th century, Dublin primarily attracts visitors by its outstanding architectural ensemble imbued with the medieval spirit. Enjoy a peaceful walk around the inspiring winding streets, witness the grandeur of the Dublin Castle and the St. Patrick’s Cathedral, relax at the enormous Phoenix Park, and organize a museum-day as Dublin has a lot of venues for a deeper history immersion. One more distinctive Dublin feature, alongside the great legacy, is, of course, the traditional bustling Irish pubs, perfect for social interaction coupled with the famous Irish whiskey or beer degustations. Sounds like a great experience?...
