About Dublin
Modern Dublin
Dublin is a bustling city with a population of over 1.7 million. Though modern, Dublin has managed to retain its own distinct culture, which is expressed in a love of literature, drama and traditional music.
Steeped in history
You can combine shopping with sight-seeing and history. A stroll through the city is like a walk through time, from Government Buildings on Dawson Street, down to the General Post Office on O’Connell Street, centre stage to the historical 1916 Easter Rising.
The city on your doorstep
Dublin is one of the oldest cities in Europe and with ancient churches, grand buildings and fine museums, cultural riches abound. From the ancient to the avant-garde, from historical architecture, literature, art and archaeology to the performing arts, Dublin has it. The real advantage to the visitor is that everything is contained within a small area. Dublin also boasts the Phoenix Park – the largest park to be found in a European city.
Internet capital of Europe
Dublin is widely considered ‘the internet capital of Europe’ with seven of the world’s top ten global companies having significant bases here.
