The medieval castles reveal Dublin’s age, but you’ll feel a new exuberance in the city, too. Credit the atypically youthful population (one‑third of Ireland is under 25). The historic streets are abuzz with lively nightclubs, contemporary restaurants and bars, where you’ll find inventive craft cocktails on offer, alongside the requisite stout.
