A contemporary photographic journey through Dublin that brings history to life. This explores the city's Viking heritage; its role as a Norman and later British seat of power; and finally its emergence as Ireland's vibrant capital during the Celtic Tiger years. Through lushly illustrated purpose-made images, this book looks at Dublin's Georgian architecture, classic bridges, famous pubs, as well as its parks, streets, and institutions. Among the features are chapters on beer and pubs, the St. Patrick's Day Parade, and the defining role of the River Liffey.

Very nice photographs with a bit about the city past and present. It has a good bibliography if you are inclined to read more.
A great guide to Dublin with truly stunning photographs.
A visual feast of Dublin
Dublin is a city full of history, intrigue and interesting people and places. With this book, Brian Solomon has created a virtual tour using his stellar photography as a guide. He covers many varied topics from the pint, the Liffey, the Vikings, transportation, and more. I have been to Dublin before, but I look forward to returning with a new perspective and more information about this vibrant city thanks to Solomon's fine work. Highly recommended.
