Welcome to Dublin

Dublin is a city that is renowned for its friendly atmosphere. A UNESCO city of literature where history and culture are woven into the fabric of everyday life. The cobbled streets are brimming with historic architecture strewn with shops, cafés, restaurants, and traditional pubs all within walking distance of each other.

Dublin is also a place of great natural beauty with rivers, canals, and public parks. Search beyond the city and you will find the UNESCO Biosphere that is Dublin Bay, along with coastal walks and sea-side villages, all framed by the background of the Dublin mountains.

We are delighted to be able to present the opportunity for people to come and visit Dublin and to experience everything the city and surrounding areas has to offer, and we hope to see you in April next year for TRA 2024.
