Dublin Warnings and Dangers: 95 reviews and 43 photos

  Is this a solution ?
by sourbugger

The rise of the Celtic Tiger has given rise to chronic traffic congestion in dublin.

Whilst it might not be at the levels experienced in places like Bangkok, the horror tales of Daily life in the city fill hours of chat between Dubliners.

The city fathers are trying to address the problem with new tunnels, trams and eventually a metro - but you can't make an omlette without breaking eggs, so the new projects are just adding to the problem at the moment.

As a tourist, if you avoid peak hours, and take the view that Dublin is a very walkable city, then it won't affect you too much. Also remember that taxi's are allowed to use bus lanes.
