Dublin 'offers interesting architectural mix'

Posted by Linda Davidson

Motorhome owners with a Waeco caravan fridge who are planning their next excursion could consider Dublin if they are interested in architecture, an expert has suggested.

The Irish capital is easily accessible by caravan and boasts a number of convenient camping and caravan parks, with tourism agency Visit Dublin citing the Camac Valley site as the one closest to the city centre.

John Lahiffe, publicity manager at Tourism Ireland, said the fact that Dublin has recently been selected for the World Design Capital 2014 awards makes it clear the city has plenty to offer tourists wishing to see impressive buildings.

He explained that the city was largely Georgian in the centre but also boasted an impressive culture of modern design.

Mr Lahiffe added that the co-existence of these two styles was what made Dublin such an interesting destination.

"There is a great realisation that we shouldn't be knocking down the prized architecture of the Georgian city, which back in the 1950s they were starting to do," he noted.
