YOU ARE GOING TO DUBLIN???
is a good starting point which leads you to a number of different
websites, plus it has a very nice interactive city map (see below).
It has sections on art, architecture, history, and other topics
of interest. Probably we won?t need the guide to accomodation in
Dublin? but travellers should have a quick glance at the website
For those who like interactive maps which will take up quite a bit
of your computer?s memory capacities?. It can be quite helpful.
You can do virtual walks of the city, click your way through various
quarters, find tourist attractions etc. Click on shopping, theatres?
but you won?t find many details or photos there.
If you want to get a first 360° impression of Dublin sites, this
page is a real must. Very nice, indeed!
This site provides basic information on Dublin?s history, sites
to visit etc. An nice introduction.
This website on architecture in Ireland is quite well done. The
Dublin section is structured according to architectural periods.
It is easy to use, provides lots of pictures and dates the buildings.
The award-winning Dublin Night Sky Observer for astronomists features
a number of slightly peculiar, yet highly original special-interest
features ? including articles about astro-events, up-to-date lists
of moon phases, visibility of the Jovian Satellites and other data.
And finally, two "What's on" guides
(recommended by Gaeltacht travel)
and Zanzibar at North Quay between O'Connel Bridge and Four Courts
Club M, Pierre, Turkheads, Fitzsimons - all at Temple Bar
- Lilys Bordello
in Grafton Street (not what you might think first - special recommendation)
beside Burger King
