Travel guide of Dublin
By Alexander P. Vinther

As I stumbled out of a club called “The Mess” in the Temple Bar-area with the tunes of Journeys “Don’t Stop Believing” bursting trough my mind, I thought to myself: “This has been one hell of a trip!”
It was our last evening in Dublin and it would be an underestimation to call it anything but absolutely brilliant! It started with a two-course dinner where I among other things had a rib-eye steak grilled to perfection and then of course a pint of Guinness to support it. A couple of the guys and I then went on to our “regular” bar, and by “regular” I mean: “We had been there a few times.” Here we listened to probably the best musician I have ever seen. He was a white man with long blond dreadlocks hanging from the top of his head, and it was not ...view middle of the document...

A young fellow was seated here with his guitar, where he played a lot of classics and we all sang along.
As the night progressed we agreed that it was time for some dancing, and we therefore moved on to the aforementioned club, “The Mess”, where a band, consisting of 5 members, was playing. It was a female lead singer with a voice that simply rocked my world. They mostly played music from the 80’s, but ended their act playing an updated version of The Isley Brothers’ “Shout”, and people went completely nuts. The most cool thing of it was that we were standing so close to the band, that we were able to high-five them in between the numbers.
A definite “must-see” in Dublin is the Guinness Storehouse, which is the place where the world famous Guinness beer is brewed. At the Guinness Storehouse it is possible to get a guided tour around the place, where you hear all about the history, how it is brewed and so on. It is really a fantastic and fascinating place and it is very up-to-date. At the end of the tour you get to the top of the amazing building and there is a 360o panorama window box of some sort. Here you are able to see the entire city of Dublin from above, from Trinity College to the incredible Aviva stadium.
My days across the sea also brought me outside of Ireland, and more specifically to Belfast in North Ireland where I visited the brand new Titanic Museum. This museum is one of the most spectacular ones I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. It was such a great visit, and I could easily have stayed there for longer, there was so much to see. It was both learning and extremely interesting.
All in all my stay in Dublin was undeniably one of the best, and I would recommend it to everyone I meet. If you go with people you care about as I did, Dublin definitely won’t let you down.

Aer Lingus needs to maximize the profit on this Dublin to London sector to sustain its other less profitable operations. There would probably be a subsequent increase in the demand for air travel from the pool of customers that used to travel by ground transportation due to the attractive fares and services offered by the airlines. The real challenge for Ryanair would probably come in the long run when the air carrier, and possibly the ground operators will start to make losses from the price-war.
