Dublin is the capital of Ireland since the Middle Ages, when it was founded as a Viking trading center of slaves, by the name of Dubh Linn that means Black Pool. It is a multicultural city and the largest one in the country.
Here lived the well-known Irish writers Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, etc, but it is also the land of bands like U2.
The Dubliners are musical, talkative, friendly, drinkers and always feel proud of their city.
Dublin is divided by the River Liffey. On the north side of it, you can find O’Connell Street, the main street, which is intersected by numerous shopping streets like Henry or Talbot Street.
On the south side are St. Stephen’s Green, Grafton Street, Trinity College, Christ Church,
St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and many other attractions, like the Molly Malone statue.
The Ha’penny Bridge is an old iron footbridge over the River Liffey, one of the most photographed sights in Dublin and one of its most iconic landmark
One of Dublin’s newest monuments is the Spire of Dublin, a 121.2 metres conical spire made of stainless steel and is located on O’Connell Street and one of the oldest monuments is Dublin Castle, used in the television series “The Tudors“.
The city is perhaps not well-known for its great monuments and museums but it is a place to get lost and enjoy a pint of beer or cider in any of the traditional taverns and pubs.
It is a cool city that makes Ireland one of the favorite destinations for students and travelers.
