Former seat of British 

“The Dublin’s castle is a nice place to visit if you like cultural and historical places. The castle inside is amazing and beautiful. Just a masterpiece.”

It was until 1922 the seat of the United Kingdom government’s administration in Ireland, and is now a tourist attraction. The complex of buildings is usually open to the public, except during state functions.

James Joyce Bridge

“It’s a great place to walk. Nice view and plenty of nice stores and cafes. A great place to take some pictures. The heart of Dublin.”

Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava , and named for the famous Dublin author James Joyce, the bridge was opened on 2003.  Joyce’s short story “The Dead” is set in Number 15 Usher’s Island, the house facing the bridge on the south side.

Going out

“I liked Temple Bar, it’s nice and lively with numerous bars and restaurants. If you are studding in Dublin you should visit it”

Dublin has a fantastic nightlife and its pub-to-person ratio is the envy of many cities. The city is pretty small and the best bars and clubs are all to be found in or near the centre it can sometimes seem on weekend nights that the whole city has become one massive block party. For the most part Dublin is a safe and friendly city to go out in.

Temple Bar is a popular place to hang out with other students:  “The Porterhouse”, “The Quays” or “The Foggy Dew” are some of the most visited pubs in Dublin’s temple bar.’
