Dublin Guide

The Irish city of Dublin is the capital of Ireland and lies in the province of Leinster on the east coast of Ireland, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Dating back to the Viking age, Dublin began to rapidly expand in the 17th century. Today, the city attracts millions of visitors every year to experience everything the city has to offer. One of Dublin's oldest monuments is the 13th century Dublin Castle which was founded after the Norman invasion. Trinity College, Dublin is also a popular visitor destination in order to see the Book of Kells which is an illustrated manuscript created by Irish monks in around 800 AD. One of the most photographed sights in Dublin is the Ha'penney Bridge which is an old iron footbridge that spans the River Liffey. This is considered to be one of Dublin's most iconic landmarks.

Dublin Port is the busiest passenger ferry port in Ireland, serving 1.5 million passengers per year to destinations in the UK and Europe. The port has three terminals and lies at the mouth of the River Liffey, which is under 3 km from the city centre.


Holyhead Guide

The Welsh town of Holyhead is located on Holy Island in Anglesey. At one point Holy Island was connected to Anglesey by the Four Mile Bridge but was replaced by the construction of a causeway in the 19th century. The Cobb, as the causeway is named, now carries the main road and railway line that serves the town. The Church of St. Cybi is the heart of the town and was built inside one of Europe's few three-walled Roman Forts. Other Roman sites in the town include a watchtower on the top of Holyhead Mountain inside Mynydd y Twr which is a prehistoric hill fort. There are also signs that the area has been inhabited since prehistoric times, with circular huts, burial chambers and standing stones all being found in the area. The current lighthouse is on South Stack on the other side of Holyhead Mountain and is open to the public. The area is also popular with birdwatchers.

From the Port of Holyhead, ferries depart to Dublin and Dun Laoghaire in Ireland.
