Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland, is on Ireland's east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey. It's a small capital with a huge reputation, Dublin’s mix of heritage and high-living will not disappoint. Dublin has been in the news since the 9th century, and while traces of its Viking past have been largely washed away, the city is a living museum of its history since then, with medieval castles and cathedrals on display alongside the architectural splendors of its 18th-century heyday, when Dublin was the most handsome Georgian city of the British Empire. It's historic buildings include Dublin Castle, dating to the 13th century, and imposing St Patrick's Cathedral, founded in 1191. City parks include landscaped St Stephen's Green and huge Phoenix Park, containing Dublin Zoo. The National Museum of Ireland explores Irish heritage and culture. Dubliners will admit theirs isn’t the prettiest city, but they’ll go soft at the knees when talking about the character and personality of the ‘greatest city in the world'. Talkative, amiable, and witty, Dubliners at their ease are the greatest hosts of all, a charismatic bunch with compelling soul and sociability. The pub remains alpha and omega of social interaction in Dublin.

Dublin is an exciting and charming destination and these hostels with private rooms provide an excellent base for exploring the area.
