Bill, your comments about Ireland "leaving the Empire" are extremely, extremely, disrespectful and insensitive. Next time keep your crass remarks to yourself.

Dublin is lovely. It's a capital with a small town vibe. There are lots of nature, no skyscrapers and a bunch of friendly people.

Most people love Temple Bar, Phoenix Park, St Stephen Greens, Trinity College, Guinnes Warehouse, etc.

At the weekend you can visit other places such as Howth, Bray or even the Cliffs of Moher.

If you're going to study, the English may be different from what you're used to, but it has a melody of its own.

If you're just visiting, have the craic. It will be grand!

Nice little city, easily walkable to most of the sights over say a 4 or 5 day period.  The very centre has lots to see, there is also a small public train system The Dart out to local towns which is efficient and pretty enough.  The pubs can get filled up and restaurants book up early especially in high summer.

High points, Book of Kells is worth it but don't expect Disney

Trinity College

The national gallery

Guiness experience (or what ever they call it now) is a bit meh, but if you've never seen a brewery not bad

@Nodens, the Republic of Ireland is not part of the UK, hence they don't use sterling.  All part of the recovery from the first world war, the Irish left the Empire ;-) we can smile now but it was pretty tense at the time.  Who knew leaving a customs union could be so fraught?
