Dublin, Ireland, is Europe's emerging high-tech hub, with growing telecommunications and pharmaceutical industries lending an infusion of New World entrepreneurship to this Old World city. Meetings are punctuated by one of the country's favorite extracurricular activities: golf. The Old Head at Kinsale golf course, a day trip from Dublin, has been compared to California's venerable Pebble Beach. A mild, temperate climate makes Ireland a favorite year-round destination.
