When we hear the word “Dublin”, we think of an Irish pub, Dubliner Irish whiskey or Guinness beer, Irish dances with tapping taps, but also the green colour and green costumes accompanying St. Patrick. For some Slovaks, the Irish capital is a second home, where they went for work. What else does Dublin offer us?
Flights from Bratislava

Guinness beer has made Dublin so famous that its Guinness Storehouse is one of the most visited attractions in the city. The distillery of the famous whiskey Jameson, located in Smithfield square, is also worth a visit, which also offers tastings during the tour. Let's face it, people go to Dublin for the night life and bars, so be sure to visit at least one typical Irish pub (the most popular is The Temple Bar and the former cathedral that became a bar - The Church) and then go for the sights. See Dublin Castle from the 13th century, the Cathedral of St. Patrick, Christ Church Cathedral, The Spire of Dublin monument, or the unique white Ha'penny Bridge. In addition, you can manage all this during a walking tour of the city.
And what to taste if you feel hungry? Irish cuisine is a mixture of potatoes and meat dishes. A typical dish in every household is therefore Irish stew or Colcannon - a mixture of potatoes, cabbage, and spring onions. Boiled potatoes, potatoes in the form of pancakes or bacon in various ways - you will be served some of these in many an Irish restaurant.
