Dublin has a unique charm and identity. Walk through its old streets and squares and you will understand why it was considered the most handsome Georgian city of the British Empire. There are some outstanding museums and plenty of shopping opportunities. And then there are the Dubliners themselves: charming, witty, moody – but most of all always happy to greet anyone, especially in front of a beer – and it must be a Guinness, of course! In the last two decades Dublin has undergone major changes and it is no longer the backwater town it used to be, but a multicultural and dynamic European city, with superb food & entertainment opportunities.
From a LGBT point of view, this transformation couldn’t have been more radical. This once staunchly conservative Catholic country has made some amazing progress and legalised same-sex marriage in a momentous referendum in 2015. Things are definitely on the up!
