Dublin Voted among World's Top 10 Cities

Global travel authority Lonely Planet recently cited Dublin as one of the top ten cities in the world to visit in its latest publication - Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2022. Dublin, a city flanked by the sea and the mountains, ranked as number seven, recognised as one of Europe’s most down-to-earth and friendly cities, for its approach to ethical tourism, its flourishing independent artisan shopping scene and plans to pedestrianise parts of the centre to create a renewed sense of community.

The city is also home to the vast Pheonix Park as well as hidden green gems such as The Phoenix Park, The Iveagh Gardens, Merrion Square and Herbert Park - five minutes walk from the RDS and a popular park with locals of all ages for its green spaces, tennis courts, playing fields, children's playground and bowling green.

Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2022.

Welcoming the news, Niall Gibbons, Chief Executive of Tourism Ireland, said: “The inclusion of Dublin as the Number Seven City in the world in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2022 is wonderful news and will surely help to inspire travellers everywhere to put Dublin and Ireland on their wish-list for next year.”
