Dublin

Malvern House Dublin is located in the centre of Dublin city on Dame Street. We are across from the Central Bank, and beside Trinity College and Grafton Street, the main shopping area. Ideally located for easy access to public transport systems you will be able to see Dublin and its lively and vibrant streets that exude culture and history. Dublin is a compact city and is easy to navigate, yet it still hides the secrets of a turbulent past, filled with Vikings, hidden bars, and beautiful Georgian houses. With a population of just over 1 million Dublin has a cosmopolitan and modern feel and has repeatedly been voted Europe’s friendliest city by Tripadvisor.

The recently refurbished Docklands area boasts an eclectic mix of the worlds restaurants. Whether it’s the Italian quarter or the more traditional Baggot Street area. Dublin is full of top quality bars and restaurants to please those with many tastes.

While you are visiting Dublin you should visit some of the many excellent museums, walk through the many city parks and visit some shopping areas such as Grafton Street and Temple Bar. Dubliners are not afraid to demonstrate their friendliness and this is evident in many of the attractions of the city. Not least the Guinness factor, of which all Dubliners seem to share a steep associated family history, with generations of families often working there side by side.
