I am considering visiting Dublin at Christmas. Is is a good idea? What kind of place does Dublin turn into at this time of the year. Dubliners:) how do you view this?
Dublin is a great place to visit all year!
Around Xmas, stores have sales, lots of lights & happy people, nice atmosphere...
But be aware that on christmas day there are no pubs open!
Also, the trip could turn out more expensive then assumed so make sure you have the money for it, since life in Dublin is very expensive.
Nice places to go are Wicklow mountains, or just the city centre (stephens green, rathmines, henry street, st stephens mall, ...), or the seaside in Howth or Bray, all worth seeing...
Hope you have a lot of fun!
