''A center of paralysis''.
These are the words you won’t hear in today's Dublin, but in the early 20th century they were uttered by Irish novelist and author of masterpiece ''Ulysses'' James Joyce to illustrate Ireland’s economic, social, and religion stagnation.
That was then, this is now and James Joyce would hardly be able to compare his assessment with modern Dublin, but for you there is nothing easier, with just a click at Booked.net. Right here you can find cheap hotels in Dublin and those appointed with luxuries all available with maps, photos and secure forms.
James Joyce found a shelter from Dublin's provincial toughness in Paris – light and romantic - at that time a total opposite to Dublin. He could hardly imagine that Dublin would be on its way to rediscover itself as a rival to cosmopolitan Paris. In later years, the city's name would be again immortalized by Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney and music genius ''U2'' – a band that won a global audience.
Today Dublin is more than the etymology of its name resembles – ''black pool''. It is a culturally diverse and historically concentrated destination. Dublin was originally settled by Vikings in 988 and by the 14th century the King of England controlled Dublin. This regency led a foundation for further fight for independence from Britain, something eventually gained in 1916. It led to the arrest of hundreds and execution of 15 rebels. However, British rule influenced the cityscape of Dublin thus today's attractions include;
- Kilmainham Gaol, a historical place of execution of rebels from the 1916 Easter Rising
- Dublin Castle, former seat of British rule
- Dublin Zoo, a place to see rare animal species
- Phoenix Park, the largest urban park in Europe
You can find all these sights treasured in Dublin itself situated at the mouth of the Liffley River. Generally, Dublin occupies the area of approximately 115sqkm. All this land is inhabited with 505,739-strong population expanding so rapidly that it is estimated to reach 2.1 million by 2020.
Dubliners live along the waters of the Liffley River that divides the city into two parts and this division is as well cultural with upper-middle class tending towards the Southside and working-class towards Northside Dublin. The suburb appears prominently in James Joyce's ''Ulysses'', but the author forgot to mention it to be featured a wonderful walk from Sandymount across the north end of its beach to the South Bull Wall.
