Yeah I´ve heard the nightlife is outstanding and that people are very friendly.Thanks for the comment Mr Bricks. It's nice in parts, but def has its fair share of grime and grottiness. The people are generally nice, and the nightlife is great if you keep south of Temple Bar.
Docks always have their charm, but I think it´s nice they´re being relocated. My only concern is that the new buildings won´t live up to the standards of the modern buildings in Dublin.I notice you're from Helsinki?? I think Dublin could learn so much from Helsinki, especially the relocation of its port.
Very beautiful!Here's a few pics of Dublin Bay. I live in a suburb by the sea to the south-east of Dublin, so some of these pics are my real heartland. It's def my fav thing about Dublin!
Thanks for the feedback. I guess it's a good mobile, but I think I'll have to invest in a proper camera.Dublin looks beautiful, plenty of Georgian buildings and some of those corner buildings are fantastic. Does it feel more European than British if you see what I mean, because it looks like it's a blend of a bit of both.
Btw, those photos are very good for a mobile phone.
Oh yes definitely, although those photos are fantastic for a phone, a camera would be brilliant for you as they would make your pictures even better! Dublin sounds interesting from whay you say. Just looking at O'Connell Street, it does have a big bustling capital look to it and as you say, those coast pictures really do resemble the southern coasts of the UK.Thanks for the feedback. I guess it's a good mobile, but I think I'll have to invest in a proper camera.
I wouldn't say Dublin feels particularly European. The remnants of our relationship with Britain are very much still here. Although, in saying that I think Dublin does have a rather distinct feel from the UK.
In terms of appearance though I suppose there are some similarities with PARTS of London in the city centre. Then the suburbs along the coast would be rather like the south/south-west coast of England. There's definitely a touch of Bournemouth/Poole about some of the suburbs. Then the hills (we call them mountains in the uk and ireland), I don't know where to compare them with?
In contrast though, I was surprised when I visited Belfast how similar it was to Glasgow and how it resembled Northern England and Scotland. Despite the obvious, being part of the uk and all, I'd say Belfast has a far stronger British feel than dublin in all aspects.
p.s was in bristol once, great city! Love the setting, and the architecture is very distinct compare to other uk cities.
