Dublin is as cheap as chips
According to the City Costs Barometer, compiled by the Post Office, it is one of the cheapest capitals in the whole of western Europe to go to, which is excellent tidings for anyone who is a little bit cash-strapped but can't bear to cut back on travelling around the world - a sentiment that I can more than relate to. I honestly believe that I would rather go without food - or perhaps just live off rice and cheese - than not satisfy my jet-setting urges. Besides, chances are you'll come across more than one Good Samaritan on your journey who will offer you sustenance. It's happened to me before and I have faith that it will happen again.
But back to the matter at hand - congratulations to Dublin, indeed, for beating the likes of London, Barcelona and Rome in terms of price. I salute you. "Visiting galleries, museums and heritage sites is a staple ingredient of a city break and our research shows that culture lovers can get a great deal more for their money in some cities than in others," Sarah Munro of the company concluded.
If it were me heading to Dublin for a bit of a trip, I'd make sure I'd make a pit stop over at art deco restaurant Bewley's. I went there after Reuters correspondents told me how good it was, saying that Samuel Beckett used to munch lunch there.
