Amazon UK Free Trade Ireland Dublin's best pubs James Toner's by James Toner'sAttribution Like getting bumped on the streets of New York or being the victim of haughtiness in Paris, you cannot fully experience Dublin without spending at least some of your time here in a pub. The city may have gone through some pretty dramatic changes over the last few years, but the pub remains the heart of its social existence, the broadest window through which you can examine and experience the very essence of the city’s culture, in all its myriad forms.

Insider Guide: Best of Dublin That's what you likely know about Dublin, and Dublin's got 'em. There are over 2,000 liquor licenses in the Irish capital, or one for every 600 Dubliners. James Joyce once said it would make a great puzzle trying to cross the city without passing a pub. So you know you're gonna have your Fair City's share of Guinness while you're here, but we want to make sure you're doing it in a proper joint. We also want you to see the rest of Dublin, because whether you know it or not, this city is among the oldest and most culturally endowed in the world -- just don't tell Dubliners that. The museums are free, the literary legacy rich and the city park (Phoenix, 707 hectares) the largest in Europe -- not that your odds of a sunny day to see it are very good. Just a few rudimentary Dublin rules to follow: 1. 2. 3. 4. With the basics covered, we present the best of Dublin shops, restaurants, attractions and, yes, pubs in which to put these essential rules into practice. Hotels Luxury The Westbury The Merrion

A walk on the dark side with Bram Stoker in Dublin One would think that an event designed to celebrate an Irish author who created one of the greatest horror characters of all time, a blood-sucking count from Transylvania named Dracula in a novel of the same name, would be steeped in blood, gore and doom. Yet even with Halloween clearly looming over Dublin, there wasn’t a fang in sight last weekend during the Bram Stoker Festival. Instead, the four-day event paid homage to the spirit of bizarre Gothic imagination behind the celebrated 1897 novel by offering “four days of living stories and four nights of deadly adventures”, all while promoting the festivities with the light-hearted hash tag #bitemeDublin. At Marsh’s Library, the Enlightenment-era facility in St Patrick’s Close, by St Patrick’s Cathedral, the Hushed event involved a series of candlelit walks, set to the sounds of Dublin’s Tonnta vocal ensemble. “Why are we doing this?” one of the girls asked, shivering into the collar of her coat. amcqueen@thenational.ae One-page article

Život u Dublinu (Novosti o PPS-u+savjeti i troškovi života) | Moving steps to Dublin Pozdrav Dragi moji! Uskoro nam se bliži već skoro druga godina od kako smo u Irskoj! Kada pogledam unazad zaista smo puno toga prošli. Gledajući na situaciju kakva je bila prije skoro dvije godine, kada još Irska i nije bila toliko popularna destinacija te opcija boljeg života, danas se sve više i više ljudi odlučuje na iskorak baš ovdje. Istina je da Vam nije potrebna radna dozvola za život u Irskoj već se granica prelazi samo sa osobnom iskaznicom. Baš nedavno prije jedno 10-ak dana doselilo nam se nešto rodbine i poznanika iz Zagreba. Nije da želim nekoga kritizirati, ma da svijesna sam situacije u Hrvatskoj i znam da su ljudi očajni i željni boljega života, mislim primjer sam bila i ja sama. Dvije ili tri tisuće eura u Hrvatskoj zvuči mnogo novaca, mogu zamisliti kako to zvuči u nekim drugim zemljama primjerice Srbiji kojoj je standard života još niži nego u Hrvatskoj. Ispričat ću Vam nešto što bi Vam moglo zvučati smješno no mene takve stvari užasavaju. 1. 2. 3. 5. 5. 7. Naprimjer:

Travel - Discover Ireland’s most ancient secrets Ireland is not very big. In fact, you can drive from the east to west coast in less than four hours. But the country’s newest tourism initiative – Ireland’s Ancient East – is aiming to cover almost half of it, from Cork 310km north to County Cavan and from the coast 150km west to the river Shannon. There’s no one route, itinerary or even a finite list of sites. What it does offer is some of the country’s best-known sites – the Hill of Tara, Kilkenny Castle, Newgrange – alongside less-visited local secrets; an absolutely magical combination of the extraordinary and the unknown. And that’s how I found myself on a journey that felt like a choose-your-own-adventure through the past 5,000 years, starting at the four peaks of Carnbane East, Carnbane West, Patrickstown and Carrigbrack, located just 80km northwest of Dublin in County Meath. From the summit of Carnbane East, a postcard-perfect panorama of Ireland spread out before me. It didn’t fit. So to Uisneach we went.

Three of Ireland's Most Haunted Houses to Visit This Halloween – Image Interiors & Living For the month that’s in it, we take a ghoulish look at some of Ireland’s creepiest houses, and learn the stories of the ghosts said to haunt them … Halloween is fast approaching, and though we usually like our interiors ghost-free, even we can’t help getting a little bit carried away on the tide of seasonal hysteria. Here we list the three haunted houses we’d recommend visiting this Halloween, if you dare … 1. Leap Castle, Offaly. Behind the regal façade of Leap Castle lies a history of mystery and mass murder so grisly that it is considered one of Europe’s most haunted buildings. The O’Carrolls racked up an astounding number of casualties during their reign. A number of other spirits are said to haunt the castle, and during renovations around 1900, workmen discovered a dungeon full of human skeletons off the Bloody Chapel. 2. Since 2012, Loftus House has been open to the public for guided tours, where one visitor unwittingly took an eerie photo that later went viral. 3.
