Let me start by saying that Dublin, Ireland is NOT what you’d expect… at all.

I expected Dublin City to be like stereotypical Ireland; magical, foggy, and filled with sheep. I couldn’t have been more incorrect. Here are my 5 reasons why I’m obsessed with Dublin.

1. It is The Capitol of Technology

If you walk a mile to the east, you’re at the coast.  A mile in the other direction takes you to stunning parks. Everything in between is packed with detailed architecture through every generation.
