Dublin City is no doubt unique. While not a sprawling metropolis, it’s size makes it a wonderful place to explore by foot or bike ensuring most of the sights are covered. It also gives somewhat of a “small town” feeling as the locals tend to be friendlier (or nosier!) which gives the warm welcome that is famous worldwide.
In the Enjoy Dublin Guide, I intend to do just that – help you enjoy your stay in Dublin by giving the low down on how to get here, the main and hidden sights, along with some of the many things I’ve found while living in this fabulous city.
Situated on the East coast of Ireland, Dublin County is nicely nestled on one side by the Irish Sea which is swarming with wildlife and on the other by the Dublin Mountains which offers some fabulous views.
The City centre itself is split into two by the river Liffey – north-side and south-side. As with all cities that have a divide like this, many will have a favourite. I’ve lived on both sides and unfortunately I have to agree with the south-siders! If you’re planning on a stay here, you’ll find that most of the hot spots and attractions will be on that side of the Liffey.
