Dublin Airport ranked most popular destination in Europe for mytaxi customers Over 1m trips were made to the airport in 2018 , figures have revealed. Christmas time was the busiest on record, with December 15 seeing the most demand for taxis from passengers ever. But March 2, when Storm Emma hit Ireland, was the quietest day of the year for the app. Alan Fox, general manager for mytaxi, said: “2018 was a remarkable year of growth for mytaxi in Ireland, most noticeably with regard to trips taken by passengers to Dublin Airport, which was our most popular destination across all the nine European countries and now more than 100 European cities we operate in internationally.

Dublin has been named the third best city in the world to visit next year by the travel guide, Lonely Planet. The city is described as a location that "No longer a dirty auld town, Dublin has a healthy hue, with people embracing its inner green spaces and exploring the wild outdoor arenas along the

Dublin has been rated one of the greenest cities on the planet thanks to the acres of parks in the centre of the capital.

A new study ranks the Irish city at number six in the ratings of the world’s cities with the best parks.

The Phoenix Park – which is twice the size of New York’s Central Park – is the biggest enclosed park in any European capital.

Dublin also boasts St Anne’s Park which was once owned by the Guinness family along with St Stephen’s Green in the heart of the city.

Selections from all parts of the world also include keyboards, brass, woodwind, stringed, percussion, mechanical and electronic instruments. Other highlights are rare pieces from the violin and viola families, reed organs and instruments from the Orient and Tibet.

Dublin has been rated one of the worst cities in the world to emigrate to due to the lack of affordable housing and high cost of living. Further analysis of the housing sub-section revealed that almost nine in ten expats in Dublin found local accommodation unaffordable — more than twice the global average.

Paris came at the top of the table with 139 parks, while San Francisco was in second place with 53 outdoor spaces.

The study by TravelSupermarket placed the capital ahead of New York and Los Angeles in the table which ranked each city by the provision of outdoor spaces for its visitors.

“There are great places for locals as well as fitness-mad holidaymakers to keep on top of their exercise.

“This means destinations will have to consider the needs and cater for the lifestyles of health conscious travellers.”

Barcelona came in the top spot with 1,368 vegan option restaurants and Ireland was ranked in ninth place with 528 restaurants with options of plant-based dishes.

Overall, the study ranked Dublin as the 22nd healthiest city in the world.
