Dublin, Ireland, is the place to go if you want a warm, friendly welcome to start off your hostel experience. For traditional Irish music, head to Temple Bar in Dublin’s cobbled cultural quarter, also named Temple Bar. Grafton Street is Dublin’s main shopping street and a great place to pick up some trendy boutique designs or stop to watch some street performers. While you’re there, make sure you grab a pint of Guinness – it really does taste better in Ireland! For an escape into nature visit Phoenix Park, one of the largest parklands in Europe at 707 hectares. Without doubt, the best time to visit Dublin is around St Patrick’s Day. The day is marked by a four-day festival with some of the best street performers in Europe coming to put on a show. And don’t forget to catch a game of hurling – the fastest field game in the world.
