Known for being the birthplace of Guinness, as well as hosting the 2006 Ryder Cup, Dublin has steadily been making its way up the golfing and tourist ranks. With over 100 golf courses within the County Dublin area, the East Coast of Ireland is definitely a golfing goldmine. Dublin’s nightlife is also the best in Ireland, with busy and popular places such as Temple Bar, and local pubs offering not only Guinness but traditional Irish delicacies such as colcannon and beef stew. Visit the Irish Whiskey Museum or Jameson Distillery for a chance to sample some authentic Guinness in its birthplace.
