DUBLIN

Greetings from Ireland!

Dublin is located on the East Coast of Ireland, stretching along the Irish Sea in a half moon shape. The city is bordered to the South by the dramatic Wicklow Mountains. The language spoken in Dublin is English. Street signs and official buildings are signposted in both English and Gaelic, the indigenous Irish language. 

Dublin City, colourful, vibrant, exciting. The living capital city of Ireland.

Dublin's elegant Georgian architecture makes it one of Europe's most attractive capitals. Dublin is a relatively small and accessible city, small enough and safe enough to get around on foot. It has history, charm, sights, museums, galleries, theatres, shops, pubs, restaurants and an abundance of character. Dublin is a thriving cultural centre and boasts a great literary legacy with many luminaries of Irish literature such as Joyce, Shaw, Yeats, Wilde, Kavanagh and Beckett, being associated with the city.Famous for its easy going charm and cultural heritage, Dublin is also the capital of The Craic (pronounce 'crack'), the art of life.

  1. Jedna pocztówka, a tak wiele charakterystycznych miejsc z Dublina: mosty, kolorowe drzwi, architektura, James Joyce, Molly Malone, rzeka Liffey, puby, Guinness, Trinity college itd. Lubię tę serię i nawet z niej otrzymałam jedną pocztówkę: http://joanapostcards.blogspot.com/2016/11/146-dublin-irl-baile-atha-cliath.html
