    Dublin – One of the Best Places to Spend Christmas

    Dublin has been named as one of The 32 Best Places to Spend Christmas Around the World by Condé Nast Traveler. The article states;

    “If your idea of Christmas merriment includes an authentic Irish pub crawl (we get it), then Dublin is your place. There’s no better way to warm up on a cold Christmas night than with some black pudding and a few pints—and trust us, this city has enough cozy bars to last you through New Year’s. But the Irish capital isn’t just about drinking, of course. Holiday offerings include Christmas markets, decked-out shops on Grafton Street, and tree-lighting ceremonies galore.”
