The urban interior shimmers with Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian architecture. The sound of trickling waters emanates from the winding banks of River Liffey. The antique buildings decorate the skyline with dramatic spires imitating the bordering trees. Hidden alleys offer testament to the literary romances of Becket, Joyce, Wilde, and Yeats. The aroma of black tea swirls out of Queen of Tarts, a café off Dame Street known for the delicious cakes and perfectly brewed tea.

A statue of Molly Malone marks the beginning of the shops abuzz with eclectic wares, from boutique jewelers to upmarket department stores. Music emanates from a unique mix of classical quartets playing in the evening light and traditional fiddle players offering a touch of vintage culture. For your first dinner to Ireland, you can make your way to Pearl Brasserie, a two-star Michelin restaurant by Patrick Guilbaud and partner Kirsten Batt.
