If NYC had an Affair with Amsterdam, their Love-Child Would be Dublin
Walk down a few streets and it seems as if you’ve been here before; you’ll feel as if you know everyone and you realize you’re not worried about getting lost.
The best way I can describe Dublin is if New York had an affair with Amsterdam and Las Vegas, and some how all their genes formed a love-child.
Ok, let me explain. Dublin is New York-like in the sense that it has that gritty street feel to it, minus the skyscrapers. The Amsterdam-ish vibes, well I can’t really quite figure out yet why I am reminded of the city… All I know is that when I was walking down some of the streets, I felt like I was in the ‘Dam, minus the coffee shops. Las Vegas, simply because of all the drunk people I’ve seen in the streets.
I love it here.
Out of any city I’ve been to, I have never felt more safe than here in Dublin (which is awesome after what I just dealt with!). The locals are some of the most friendly people I have ever met and within only one day here the city is jeopardizing bumping Paris out of my number one spot (GASP!!!!!!). Yes, I know, I am prematurely assuming this based on a one day visit so far, but the possibility is totally there in my book.
In the morning you can have an Irish breakfast, complete with black pudding (or blood pudding)…
You can roam the rainy streets…
You can stroll through Trinity College, check out the amazing library and see the Book of Kells…
Or you can pop into a low-key pub with amazing, friendly staff and have a few Guinness beers…
…And you realize that the entire world should be covered in cobblestone streets…..
I leave tomorrow for my tour of Ireland with Shamrocker Adventures; when I’m finished, I’ll return to Dublin for a week… I can’t wait to spend some more time in this amazing city!

You just made me laugh so hard – just because of the title of this post! But you are so right, too! I’ve lived in Dublin for over 6 years now and yes, it reminds me NYC sometimes – especially Brooklyn. And I can see where you coming from comparing it to Amsterdam, too! Anyway, thanks for the laugh! This will definitely be shared! 🙂
Thanks, Andrea! I would LOVE to live in Dublin! It’s just such an amazing, welcoming city! I truly wish it were easier for me to move there, but it looks like it’s pretty hard for an American to get a work visa 😦
Thanks again!!! Maybe I’ll see you at TBEX?!
Not sure about work visas as I’m from Europe, so it is much easier for me to live & work in Ireland. But on the other hand I wish it was easier to get a work visa for the US! Poetic justice?!
Anyway, I read your latest post and hope you made it to Dublin safely in the end. I’m sure you needed a couple of pints to settle your nerves – even after arrival. 😉
Was meant to go to tbex myself but can’t make it now – bummer! 😦
My 2 colleague Niamh & Emer will be there though. Maybe you will see them – they are big fans of your blog, too.
Anyway, enjoy your stay here in Dublin!
I talked to my taxi driver this morning, and he said it’s so easy! He said to get a student visa, take a class or two, and then find a job while staying as a student. Brilliant! I’m so happy to be back, minus the plane from the depths of hell, and pints of Guinness are happening shortly!
Wish you could’ve made it! I’ll try and find your friends!
I WANT TO GO TO IRELAND , NOW, GLAD YOUR HAVING SUCH A GREAT TIME
So get your buns on a plane and GO!
Very interesting blog! Love reading about your adventures, definitely going to look out for your next post!!
Awwww, thank you so much!
See? THAT’S the Dublin experience I wanted! Glad you’re having a good time, and hope my post didn’t worry you too much. After all, it could’a happened anywhere, just a bit of bad luck on my part.
Keep enjoying Ireland. 🙂
Awwww.. Well I hope you experience it too one day!
Ireland is beautiful, If it rates this high on your list then I really need to go! Thanks for the great pictures. I can’t wait to read your next venture.
