About Dublin

(North Wall Quay – © Giuseppe Milo)

Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland and is located on Ireland‘s east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey, its Northside and Southside being divided by the river. While its history dates back to the Viking times, the city today has an urban area population of 1,345,402. With three of Ireland‘s largest universities in town, Dublin is a very young city.

The city’s character is shaped by its people. Dubliners are a friendly and mildly inquisitive lot. Rarely will you venture into a pub without somebody standing near you striking up a conversation. If you ever find yourself lost, ask somebody and more than likely you'll be greeted with a li le friendly chat. Dubliners are also known for their sharp wit and deadpan humour. Any bookshop in Ireland will sell you books of "Dublin Humour".
