Dublin is the capital city of the Republic of Ireland.
Steeped in history, earlier accounts of Dublin go back as far as AD140 when Ptolemy mentioned it as a place of note.Dublin had many visitors over the centuries, some welcome, others not.These visitors have left their mark on the fabric of our city. From the Vikings, who established the first settlement in this location, through the walled medieval city, to the splendid Georgian architecture.
Dublin is a city of colour and delightful contrasts. All of this is within a short coach or car ride of breathtaking Wicklow with its mountains, lakes, valleys and long sandy beaches to the south of the city.Although compact by international standards, it has achieved worldwide recognition that belies its size. Over the years, it has produced 3 Nobel Prize winners for literature – Samuel Beckett, George Bernard Shaw and William Butler Yeats.
European City of Culture in 1991, Dublin today has all the charms of the past and the benefits of the 20th Century with its wide range of tempting shops and boutiques, sporting facilities, pubs and entertainment.You’ll delight in the discovery of noble Georgian mansions, superb museums, gracious town squares, tranquil parks and imposing statues.
