With its literary history and Georgian architecture, its modern art galleries and classic pubs, Dublin has become both an international tourist destination and a place for stylish, sophisticated lifestyles. This book explores a city that both embodies urban life in a previous century and represents European style in the new millennium. Dublin's social tradition is represented in the hotels and parks, shops and racecourses - all alive with the resurgent excitement of the city.
The book also explores the city's relationship with the literary life, from Jonathan Swift to Roddy Doyle - not to mention Shaw, Yeats, Wilde, Joyce, O'Casey and Beckett. It is completed by listings of places to stay and eat and a guide to the sights of the city.
