Dublin, Ireland during the Christmas and New Year's holiday season is a wonderful place to be, according to the Boston Irish Tourism Association.
Families and friends reunite, shopping districts are filled with good cheer, and there are lots of musical performances to enjoy. Plus, the city's amazing cultural treasures are easily accessible without long lines, including the Book of Kells at Trinity College, the National Gallery of Ireland and National Library of Ireland, plus perennial favorites like a tour of the Guinness Storehouse.
Christmas melds right into Dublin's exciting New Year's Festival, which runs this year from December 30 to January 1 and includes three days of entertainment, fireworks and bright lights as well as live music in Stephen's Green and St. Patrick's Cathedral.
