Dublin Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Dublin is a city steeped in contradictions: Catholic and Anglican, Celtic beneath a classical exterior, working-class yet affluent. The city has been capital of the Republic of Ireland since 1949, and has not been able to rid itself of the influence of its one thousand year enemy, the British Crown. Although Dublin's vitality has never waned, as shown by the outstanding creativity of its writers and poets, Ireland's new prosperity is now spectacularly clear for all to see.
