Dubrovnik Riviera & Islands
George Bernard Shaw called Dubrovnik the “pearl of the Adriatic” when he visited here in the 1930s and Dubrovnik is still as pretty as it was then. The Dubrovnik Riviera and its lush delightful islands have proved to be very popular with Irish holidaymakers, many of whom return year after year and it’s hardly surprising! Dubrovnik is unique, with its preserved medieval walls, brilliant sunshine, translucent waters and dramatic mountains, Dubrovnik, its Riviera and the nearby islands are a unique holiday experience that lives up to its reputation as a premier destination.
