Almost everything you need to know about the city is contained in these pages. From the opening section, 'Dublin Origins', to the concluding 'Directory', you will discover much about Dublin's past and plenty of information on Dublin's present. Things you should know about Dublin and essential visitor information are both practical sections addressing a wide variety of subjects (customs, money, banks, post, the economy, the political system, language, religion, etc.). Arts and culture is devoted to Dublin's famous writers, musicians, actors, directors, artists and architects, while access transport and transport around the city are dealt with in 'getting to and around Dublin', as well as information on organised tours of the city and its environs. 'Things to see and do' is the largest section of the Guide and contains 72 individual entries, each with detailed information to help you appreciate your visit. Opening times and admission charges are included with each entry. We have included three detailed walking tours: Eighteenth Century Dublin; Medieval Dublin; Dublin Pubs. Each tour is accompanied by an easy-to-follow map.
The 5 separate 'Day and Half-day Excursions Outside Dublin' are recognised as classic excursions. At the back of the guide the detailed directory contains information on accommodation, dining out, shopping, entertainment, sports and annual events in Dublin.
