Dublin

Dublin is the capital city of Ireland. It is also the country’s largest city. The name of the city comes from an old Gaelic word, Dublind. This is said to mean black or dark pool. It is now a lively and fun city to visit. It is famous for its many pubs. The famous drink, Guinness, is sold here too. It is said that there is a pub for every 100 people in Dublin. However, there is much more to do in Ireland other than drink Guinness.

Spring is a great time to visit Ireland. This is because March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day. There is a parade in Dublin to celebrate this day. Some of the best street performers in Europe perform in the streets. Bands from Ireland, the UK, USA, and other countries perform at this festival.

Another popular thing to do is to take a walk around Trinity College. This was founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I. The campus has many old and new buildings surrounded by beautiful gardens. In the summer, visitors can get a guide around the campus by a student. In addition, many people like to visit Dublin Castle. Tourists can walk around the castle grounds for free, or if they want to see the beautiful interior, they can pay a fee.
