You'll be thanking your shamrock you dallied in Dublin.

In the wake of a remarkable economic boom, Dublin's landscape has changed immeasurably over the past decade. These days Dublin ranks among the top tourist destinations in Europe, and this vibrant city hums with a palpable sense that it is creating a new cultural heritage.

The city's burst of prosperity gave it a new confident sheen, but what remains special is the spirit of the people who ensure that, despite whirlwind changes, Dublin remains one of Europe's most down-to-earth, friendly and accessible cities.

Weather

Dublin's maximum temperature in July and August ranges from 15-20°C (60-70°F). During January and February, the coldest months, daily temperatures range from 4-8°C (40-47°F). Major snowfalls are rare. There are about 18 hours of daylight in July and August; it's only truly dark after about 23:00 . Despite being one of the driest parts of Ireland, Dublin gets rain on 150 days in a typical year and it often rains every day for weeks.

A Top Day in Dublin

A copy of the Irish Times, a chat with my local shopkeeper about yesterday's game - it was pure heart, not dumb luck that the Dubs won in injury time - a bowl of porridge and a strong coffee (sounds much nicer than it is) kick off my day. I take a stroll up Grafton St and enjoy the lull before the retail storm, watching the busker put together his harpsichord for the day's playing. I amble into St Stephen's Green where I'll read the rest of the paper and then maybe have a little rest (I'm obviously not going to work on my top day!). I might pop into the National Gallery for a spell to check out my favourite Irish painter, Jack B Yeats, before circling Merrion Square to remind myself that Dublin is, in fact, a very beautiful city.

I'm feeling all cultural now, so it's time to get a little meditative in my all-time favourite museum in the whole world, the Chester Beatty Library in Dublin castle. There's nothing like a collection of ancient manuscripts, Bibles, Chinese scrolls and Korans to really chill me out. I couldn't have a perfect day without a round of golf, so it's off to Portmarnock I go.

I head back into town to celebrate my sub-par round (OK, my 10-over) in one of many traditional haunts before heading off for dinner in the latest restaurant that everyone simply must go to.
