Discover Dublin

'Killiney Hill may just be the perfect belvedere because it's both low enough and high enough to register the great sweep of the panorama - and it gives you Howth in all its ancient indolence.'

'Strongbow's son foolishly showed fear in battle, so the tyrant killed him and chopped him in two as a warning to others.'

'When it was repeated that venison was beginning to appear in the diet of plain unprivileged folk in the district, the Lord Lieutenant ordered a perimieter wall around the Phoenix Park.'

From the foot-worn pavements to the castellated rooftops, the city of Dublin heaves with age and curious enough to fire the most jaded of urban imaginations.

Originally published weekly in the south Dublin newspaper The Leader, these popular pieces by journalist Hugh Lambert have now been gathered together in a special collection. With Lambert as your friendly guide, take a ramble and uncover the curious corners, forgotten alcoves and colourful characters of Ireland's capital.
