Why is Dublin such a shιtty city?

    Dublin is a dump. It really is. It kills me to say it but our national capital is an embarrassment and a total disgrace. It must be such a let down for what tourists are expecting coming here. I always encourage tourists to head to Cork and Kerry and Conemara and to stay out of Dublin. As soon as they land they should catch the first bus out of Dublin.

    We have scummy, scaldy young lads with cotton sweatpants handing around on the street, smoking and littering and loitering around.

    Equally scummy girls, loitering, swearing and making the place look dirty.

    Filthy addicts with less teeth than a geriatric hen hanging around.

    Get on the hop on, hop off bus .... sit on the upper saloon and you'll see over walls, just wrecks and waste and piles of rubbish. There is little architecture to behold in our "Fair City".

    The streets are strewn with litter.

    Walls are graffitied.

    The Luas is a no go on certain sections as are certain sections of the streets.

    There are beggars (most illegitimate) on most roads and streets.

    Our main promenade (ie, O'Connell Street) is a kip, there's no way to put it. Plastic shop fronts, cheap and tacky fast food outlets, pound shops. More scum loitering around.

    I have been to every EU capital and a handful of other European capitals. I can safely say Dublin is the biggest shιthole of them all. It's sad to say, but it is. Nicosia is a close contender, as is Chisinau. But Dublin is hands down the worst.

    I live in a northside Suburb on the DART line and I can't say anything other than Dublin is a dump.

    Dublin is great. End of story.

    The tide is turning…

    OP, Dublin certainly has problems but it's not as bad as you present it and lots of people like living here. If it's so bad here then maybe you should move back to Sweden or to another EU country that you prefer.

    Which city is really that great? I have yet to find one. Any place you shove a load of people into a small space you're going to have problems. Even if those problems arent obvious when you first arrive

    OP, nobody is forcing you to live here, don't slag off my home as I love it as much as I love my family.

    Dublin is far from perfect, but the image being presented by the OP is distorted. There are a few rough spots, mostly around the O’Connell St area and a bit of the North Inner City, but most of the rest of the city centre is fine.

    I think it’s easy to see only the negative in a place you’re familiar with and only the positive somewhere new.
