C Knight says:
"Dublin is perfect, it doesn't matter if you are single or have a family. There is so much to do and there is such a friendly atmosphere.The history of the place and the stunning views give a holiday to remember."
 
Lois Ronberg says:
"Cathedrals always enthral me but the sense of history, age and reverence I got when I first saw Christ Church Cathedral was overwhelming. Our excellent Dublin guide obviously had a true belief in the hold this very old Irish institution has over locals and visitors alike. His command of the history and activities over the centuries was most impressive. It is actually one of two cathedrals in the city. Unusual and complicated as to why a city would evolve with dual protestant houses of God but that is the way it has been for hundreds of years. Christ Church Cathedral, or the Cathedral Church of Holy Trinity to give it its current name, as you see it now was built in the 1870s but there has been a religious building here since 1030s when Dunan the first Bishop of Dublin, a Norse King of Dublin founded a Viking church. One of the highlights is the Norman crypt, with beautiful stonework of the 12-13th century vaults, also in here, I particularly liked the Treasures of Christ Church as I am always impressed with the value, age and beauty of these gold and silver assets in religious houses. In here you’ll also see the grand, ornate effigy over an historic Dubliner, Strongbow. There is truly a genuine Irish welcome at this cathedral which has been hosting pilgrims for nearly 1000 years, whether they have visited for a religious service or as a tourist. I have to say my visit was complemented by my stroll through Dublinia. You cross a rather impressive, stone bridge building into what was the former synod and the Dublinia show is presented over several floors. It was educational and most informative about old, medieval Dublin - they are to be commended on this modern multi-media exhibition, with sounds and smells, which will captivate all members of the family. There is plenty to see and experience, it holds your interest with re-constructions, models and a huge model of Dublin around 1500. The ‘’people’‘ models in here are quite realistic so this makes learning that much easier, the stories appear more authentic somehow. The second cathedral is nearby, it’s called St Patrick’s and has shared Anglican theological responsibilities throughout the centuries. "
 
Juliet Kavanagh says:
"Lovely, relaxed city, with plenty to do and lots to see. Friendly people and lots of local pubs. If you're buying food you'll need to go out of the centre of Dublin though, as you won't find many food shops there!"
 
kerry McCann says:
"The architecture is as beautiful as the people in Ireland. It is the jewel in Great Britons crown."
 
Martina Pichova says:
"Dublin is great but expensive. Luckily there are quite a few free museums worth visiting. The Guiness Storehouse is a tourist trap!"
