About Dublin

Dublin is a culturally diverse city with great museums (many of which are free of charge) and the hub of many international businesses. Whether it is about art, antiques, film, design, or theatre, there is a lot to see and do in Dublin.

Dublin was founded by the Vikings in the 9th century. Today it is a vibrant information technology hub on the River Liffey, near the east coast of the independent Republic of Ireland.

Dublin is the capital of the Republic of Ireland. The city has a population of more than 500,000 people, with a metropolitan area of more than 1.8 million inhabitants. Dublin International Airport is the main gateway from outside the island. There are also ferry boats to England and France and a good road network to other cities and points of interest on the island.

Within a day’s excursion, you can discover the city of Belfast in the north , and beautiful natural landscapes such as the Cliffs of Moher. As night falls, Dublin is known for its pubs, with some, such as The Old Storehouse, offering live musical entertainment.
