National Geographic Traveler magazine has revealed its ‘Best of the World’ list for 2018, which showcases 21 ‘must-see’ destinations to visit in the year ahead – and Dublin is among the magazine’s top picks for best cities.
The selection process included nominations from the publication’s worldwide network of writers, editors and explorers.
Dublin is described as “Ireland’s intimate capital” which “exudes a friendly, village vibe” and the magazine urges readers to “stroll around to discover Dublin’s historic Georgian squares and cozy pubs and high-tech treasures, like the new Irish Emigration Museum and revamped National Gallery of Ireland”.
