Dublin

 

Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland, its main travel hub, and a very appealing city in its own right.

The city experienced huge growth and development in the 17th century, and a Georgian style of architecture was developed that remains today.

In addition to this historical legacy, Dublin is rich in museums and art galleries.

The city has seen considerable contemporary development, and it is becoming a genuine global city with diverse cultural attractions and dynamic nightlife.

Global City
Dublin is known for its vibrancy, nightlife and travel attractions. It's disproportionately large for the size of Ireland with nearly two million in the Greater Dublin Region - well over a third of the Republic's population.

The city center is relatively small and can be navigated by foot, with most of the population living in suburbs. Dublin is divided by the River Liffey. On the north side of the Liffey is O'Connell Street--the main thoroughfare, which is intersected by numerous shopping streets, including Henry Street and Talbot Street. On the south side are St. Stephen's Green, Grafton Street, Trinity College, Christ Church, St. Patrick's Cathedrals, and many other attractions.
Historic Landmarks
Founded in 841, Dublin was originally settled by Vikings amongst a population of Celtic tribes. In the 9th century the Danes captured Dublin and had control until 1171 when they were expelled by King Henry II of England.

When the English Civil Wars ended in 1649, Dublin experienced huge growth and development because many religious refugeescame to Dublin. By the 17th century Dublin was the second greatest city, only behind London, and a period when great Georgian style building were constructed that still stand today.
