Location Details

Dublin, one of Europe’s most vibrant and friendly cities, is the capital and largest city in the Republic of Ireland. One of the premier capital cities of Europe, Dublin is a historic and contemporary cultural center and Ireland’s hub for education, the arts, government, economy and industry. Since its founding in the Middle Ages by Viking raiders, Dublin has played a major role in Ireland's turbulent history. Permanently associated with such great writers as Swift, Joyce, and Yeats, Dublin is also the center of a lively music scene, offering everything from traditional Irish music to Irish rock bands like U2. With its mix of urban cool, lush parklands, and sweeping coastline, Dublin pulsates with energy while still retaining a warm, laid-back atmosphere. Visit the Dublin Tourism Board for more information about the cultural offerings of this cosmopolitan city.
