Dublin, a land of Guinness drinking leprechauns or not?

I have recently returned from a trip to Ireland, specifically Dublin and it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting.

Ireland is associated with many things to outsiders, such as leprechaun’s dressed in green, pots of gold, rolling green hills and Guinness, oh and the colour green. However upon arriving in Dublin through the ferry terminal and driving through the streets to our accommodation, the first impression I got wasn’t the above, it was more a modern city with large european headquarters of multinationals in gleaming buildings, a river Liffey spanned by a multitude of bridges and a cluster of pubs with blackboards outside exclaiming how much traditional live music is played in them.
