Attractions and Places to Visit in Ireland

Dublin is the capital city of Ireland and it nestles at the mouth of the River Liffey. Dublin is a city of exemplary museums, exciting music and sports events, and enticing modern restaurants. The climate here is classified as a maritime climate, usually with cool summers and mild winters. This vibrant city is noted as much for its Georgian buildings, museums, theaters and attractions, as for its leisure activities and adrenaline-fuelled adventures.
