16km (10 miles) west of Dublin, Lucan has a friendly
village atmosphere of its own. Away from the noise
of the city, you can walk along the scenic banks
of the river Liffey, take in the local cultural
and historical attractions, or enjoy some of the
area’s many sporting and leisure facilities.
Lucan is also conveniently located close to large
shopping areas, and has a regular bus service
into Dublin city.
Because of Ireland’s small size, tourist
attractions all over the country are easily accessible
from the capital city. The other lively Irish
cities and towns, the magnificent coastlines,
lakes and mountains, the historical buildings
and the ancient monuments are never more than
a few hours’ journey away.
The most likeable capital of any European country,
the coastal city of Dublin has unforgettable character
and charm. See it once and you’ll want to
come back. You can spend time looking at the sights
– cathedrals, castles, museums of art and
archaeology, and countless other pleasures such
as a visit to the Guinness brewery – or
just enjoying the vibrant atmosphere of Dublin’s
Georgian streets and old fashioned pubs.
Take in a play at the Abbey Theatre, and walk
in the steps of many great Dubliners, writers
and dramatists from Sheridan and Swift to George
Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats, Brendan
Behan, Samuel Beckett, Sean O’Casey, James
Joyce and many others. Their native city will
