For such an ancient town, Dublin does a pretty good job of not showing its age. This is a town where you'll find history at every turn, whether it be down winding Georgian alleyways, in the crypts of ancient Medieval churches, or even in the timeworn snugs of its storied old pubs.

Much about Dublin has changed enormously over the past couple of decades, and it now feels as much like a cosmopolitan European city as it does merely the capital of Ireland. Entire districts have been transformed almost out of recognition for anybody who might have visited here, say, 20 or 30 years ago.

But some things don't change. Many of the stops on our itineraries for seeing Dublin in one, two, or three days will feel as permanent for lovers of this captivating old town as they ever were.
