The capital of Ireland, located at the mouth of the River Liffey, Dublin is famous for its Trinity College, Grafton Street and Temple Bar areas. More than half the population is under 25 making it one of Europe’s most youthful cities. It has undergone a transformation in recent years but the old Dublin can still be found in the elegant Georgian Houses of Merrion Square or the medieval majesty of Christ Church Cathedral.


Ireland’s second largest city is known for its traditional food and great Georgian-style architecture. It takes its name from the Irish word corcaigh, which means “marshy place” and up until the 1770s many of Cork’s modern main streets were submerged under the River Lee. The river was partially dammed in 1800 leaving the main business area on an island similar to Paris’s Ile de la Cite. With its narrow streets, numerous bridges and quays and pleasant weather, Cork is a great city to explore on foot.


The fastest-growing city in Ireland whose nickname is ‘City of the Tribes’ for the original fourteen tribes of merchant families. Famous for its festivals, celebrations and traditional street performers, Galway is one of the liveliest places in Ireland.
