Nightlife in Dublin has changed beyond all recognition recently. Alongside the traditional Irish pubs sit stylish bars and buzzing pre-club haunts.

In addition, Dublin's rich literary culture has led to a flourishing film industry and varied theatre repertoire of Irish classical and contemporary works.
