O YOU ARE GOING TO DUBLIN???

1) http://dublin.local.ie/

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 anyway.

http://dublin.local.ie/general/interactive/#

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.

2) http://www.ireland.com/dublin/visitor/360s/index.htm

If you want to get a first 360 impression of Dublin sites, this page is a real must. Very nice, indeed!

3) www.12travel.com/us/ie/Dublin

This site provides basic information on Dublin?s history, sites to visit etc. An nice introduction.

4) http://www.archeire.com

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.

5) http://indigo.ie/~gnugent/dnso/

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
