ABOUT DUBLIN CITY
Ireland’s capital and largest city, Dublin, is known as the home of many great writers – Joyce, Yeats, Beckett, Shaw – plus the even more popular Guinness Brewery founded in 1759. Sightseeing highlights include the early medieval Christchurch Cathedral (Dublin’s oldest building), the cobbled streets of Temple Bar, Phoenix Park (Europe’s largest urban park), the National Gallery of Ireland and the treasures of the National Museum of Ireland, containing Europe’s finest collection of prehistoric gold artefacts.
A wide variety of buildings and museums (including Trinity College, the Guinness Storehouse and Dublin Castle) show a real sense of living history. In the 20th century, a string of poets and writers immortalised the city, none more so than James Joyce whose seminal book Ulysses, which depicts one day in Dublin, is considered by many literary critics to be the greatest novel of that century.
