Dublin Vacations: Pubs & Irish Culture
Dublin is known for its lively pub scene, its rich literary heritage, and its stunning architecture. By day visit a gallery in Temple Bar; walk Temple Bar by night and mingle with the crowds over a beer. If you’re looking for high culture, make your way to Trinity College to see the “Book of Kells,” a breathtaking illuminated manuscript, or take a literary walk through the city’s cobblestoned streets and follow the trail of James Joyce. A Liberty Travel Dublin vacation package can take you to the city’s must-see destinations, like the Guinness Storehouse, and to hidden gems like Iveagh Gardens.
