Dublin has survived wars, famines and a devastating financial crisis, managing to reinvent itself with each and every tumble. Today, visitors will find the city writing a new chapter of innovation and creativity; in lifting itself out of such crises, this vibrant city has more to offer than its list of many historical luminaries.

Tech giants like Google, Foursquare, LinkedIn and Twitter have made the aptly named “Silicon Docks” neighbourhood their home. Restaurateurs, hoteliers and entrepreneurs are pushing through boundaries that had confined them for nearly a decade.

You will find that the ubiquitous kindness of Dubliners is unmarred by their struggles, and if anything it is fortified by the proud spark of a city renewing itself. Whether you’re in town for a night or a long weekend, it’s impossible not to be swept up in the resilient Irish “craic” – an infectious spirit which will stay with you long after you leave.
