The Westbury Dublin Ireland review
The Emerald Isle is unabashedly, magically, fantastic fun! The Irish have a unique charm that captivates visitors, a bit of Blarney delivered in those lilting accents, a vibrant pub scene that invites all with lively music and a welcoming comradery, and a culture infused with a whimsical spirit through the land. Treasured folklore, shamrocks and shenanigans, leprechauns and fairies… it’s easy to become a believer once you are here. Travelers are mesmerized by picturesque landscapes in endless variants of green dotted with fairytale castles, quaint villages, and the quintessential sheep. Dramatic coastline cliffs whipped by crashing waves contrast with tucked away beaches for summer sunbathers. Breathtaking natural beauty and historic charm… Ireland is irresistible.
