Where do you find a little Irish history and culture mixed with impressive modern touches? Why, in Dublin of course!
A good place to start is at O'Donoghue's, one of the most famous pubs in Dublin. Here is where you come for some good Irish whiskey, a pint of Guinness, and some traditional live Irish music. Along with the music comes some real Irish dancing, jigs and all.
Then it's off to the city's most famous landmarks, the Ha, Penny Bridge.
Laura transverses Dublin, running into the famous Georgian neighborhoods, and then heading off to Powers Court Center, Oscar Wilde's old home. Then, as a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, Laura'stops at the National Museum of Ireland which is filled with everything from gorgeous silver and pottery to military items dating back to 7000 BC.
From the traditional pubs to the trendy shops of Temple Bar, Laura's trip to Dublin encompasses not only the conveniences of a modern metropolis but an enclave of traditional Irish values as well, all on the banks of the River Liffey.
