DUBLIN


No one who intends coming to Ireland should miss Dublin. It’s been described in literature and song and has a character and soul that captures visitors’ hearts. This is a city where the inhabitants always make time to play.


W


elcome to the capital of Ireland – known to its inhabitants as the Fair City,


and to the rest of the world as simply Dublin. Here you can fi nd the old and the new nestling side by side. Georgian Squares next to modern steel and glass townscapes; traditional Irish dancers entertaining the crowds in a bar on the quays, while hip hop stars of the future busk on the streets. This must be the friendliest city in the world.


Wherever you go, people take an interest and engage in the Dubliner’s favourite pastime – the art of conversation. They ask you how are you? Where are you from? What do you think of the place? And once they discover an interest in golf then there’s a whole new area of interesting topics to explore. Dubliners love their golf. That’s why there are


more than sixty golf clubs and courses in the area. Each one offering a particular challenge and thrill to players of all levels. There are championship links, with their sandy beaches and views of the Irish Sea, to stunning parkland courses, lined with trees and panoramic views of the Dublin Mountains. The courses are always immaculate and provide a delightful challenge for those who are relaxed about their golf as well as those who are passionate. And afterwards there’s always a warm bar for that


blow-by-blow account of the one that ‘just rolled away from the green’ or ‘popped right into the hole’. Followed by a great meal in one of the hundreds of excellent restaurants that are dotted all over the city. And with the coming of evening there are all sorts of diversions and entertainments possible; from live music venues – where you can sing along with traditional balladeers or even try a few steps of ‘River dance’ – to theatre performances. This is a city to walk in. Take a stroll around the parkland of St Stephen’s Green or walk down Grafton Street with its range of shops and boutiques. There at the end is the famous statue of Molly Malone. Drop into one of the many bars for a fi nal drink before heading back to your hotel ready to do it all again tomorrow. Dublin is truly a city where playtime is taken seriously.
