Dublin is one of Europe's most exciting capital cities. It is up-beat and vibrant and has a young population. This makes for a very lively social scene. Dublin is well known for its wealth of culture and music. There is a lively pub or club on every corner where you can enjoy a pint of Guinness and listen to some traditional music. Even though Dublin is a capital city, unlike others it feels small and safe, its easy to get around and very quickly you will feel at home.
