Just being completely honest, I am not able to give a completely fair review of this city because I came here just for one special day in particular, St. Patrick's Day.  Spending this day in Dublin has been on my bucket list since I truly fell in love with traveling and it did not disappoint.  From the massive parade throughout the whole city to start the day, to the endless energy of the leperchaun filled streets, this was a magical day that should be on everyone's bucket list.  If you have the opportunity, coming to Dublin for St. Patrick's Day is an absolute must.  Aside from this awesome day, Dublin doesn't have a ton to do so I would definitely come back for another St. Patrick's adventure but probably not for normal traveling.
