Dublin is the capital city of Ireland. Its vibrancy, nightlife and tourist attractions are renowned and it is the most popular entry point for international visitors to Ireland. 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 centre is, however, relatively small and can be navigated by foot, with most of the population living in suburbs.
Popular Vacation Hotspots
A stroll through the landscaped parks corralled by the city’s rich Georgian heritage is enough to make anyone's head turn, while even half a peek at the city's myriad cultural offerings will show that it has pedigree too, these days expressed as much through its recently acquired multicultural cosmopolitanism as through its own traditional forms. There's almost no way you can go wrong. One minute, you're walking along a quiet leafy street and suddenly the Irish Parliament appears before you. A few minutes later, it's gorgeous Merrion Square.
