Dublin is the capital of Ireland and is the largest city in the country. The city center is small but lively and full of characteristic pubs and restaurants, shopping districts, theaters, parks, government buildings, and museums. It is a lovely European city that is easy to navigate thanks to its compact size but still offers plenty to keep any visitor busy. Come for the small town feel of the local pubs, and stay for the fine dining, castles and world-class exhibits. Here is how to make the most of your trip to Dublin.
Language: The spoken language in Dublin is English, with a heavy dose of local Irishisms and expressions thrown in. You may also notice that many street signs and other notices are also translated into Irish. It is rare to hear Irish spoken, but it is the first official language recognized throughout the country of Ireland.
Currency: The currency used in Dublin is the Euro. International credit cards are also widely accepted, but it is a good idea to have some cash on hand – particularly if you plan to take Dublin Bus, which only accepts exact change in coins.
