Introducing Dublin, Ireland

From Lonely Planet:
Decadent, delightful and full of surprises, Dublin packs a punch that, delivered correctly, will leave you reeling but still wanting more. That’s big talk for a small capital.

Dubliners don’t mind a bit of hyperbole, especially if it’s to ‘big up’ their own beloved burg. Yet Dubs can also be brutally unsentimental about the place, which mightn’t come across as sexy or as sultry as other European capitals, but aren’t pretty things as easy to like as they are to forget? Dublin, they’ll tell you, has personality, which is way more important than good looks, and will last far longer.

Which isn’t to say that Dublin can’t do pretty. An amble through the landscaped parks corralled by the city’s rich Georgian heritage is enough to make anyone’s head turn, while even half a peek at the city’s myriad cultural offerings will show that it has pedigree too, these day
