Is Dublin Ireland safe?
Unfortunately, Dublin isn't as safe as other parts of Ireland. Like any capital city, Dublin's large and dense population means it has higher rates of crime than other parts of the country. According to the Central Statistics Office, thefts and burglaries occur more frequently in the city.
What are the main towns in Dublin?
Malahide. This North County Dublin village has everything: A massive park, fab beach, and loads of restaurants, bars and cafes. Dun Laoghaire. Howth. Skerries. Dalkey. Bray.
What language is spoken in Dublin Ireland?
English and Irish (Gaeilge) are the official languages in the Republic of Ireland. Northern Ireland is where you'll hear the soft strains of Ullans (Ulster-Scots). You'll find Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking) areas predominantly along the west coast, where Irish is widely spoken.
There are currently no countries on the 'Green List' and Ireland doesn't have a 'green list' at the moment. The country did last year have a green list of overseas destinations that people could visit without having to restrict their movements upon return.
When driving, especially in more rural areas, it's considered rude in Ireland to not acknowledge an oncoming driver. This is done by simply lifting a finger off the steering wheel in greeting. You could raise the whole hand if you recognize the person, but at least a slight wave motion in passing is expected.
Many people consider Ireland to be expensive. It's an island country and has a relatively small population. This means that they import a lot of their products which can raise prices. Ireland is often viewed as more expensive than the other EU countries.
