The Irish have a reputation as the friendliest people in Europe. In recent years, Dublin has been transformed into a trendy city, and possibly the party capital of Europe. It is also a young city, with 50% of its population under the age of 27. The city has something for everyone. A fascinating history that includes everything from Vikings to hundreds of years under British rule, both of which you can see many traces of in the city. Architecture dominated by the 1800 and 1900-century, neoclassical buildings. The culture and theater world in Dublin is very alive and is centered around Abbey Theatre, the national stage. Dublin is also a city with a strong drinking culture. Drinks such as Jameson whiskey and Guinness stout originate from Dublin. To truly experience today’s Ireland, it is also almost compulsory with a round of pints in a few of the many pubs.
