About Dublin

Dublin (in Irish `Baile Átha Cliath’), is the capital and largest city of Dublin. Medieval, Georgian and modern architecture provide a backdrop to a friendly bustling port where the cosmopolitan and charming meet in a delightful diversity that is Dublin.

Founded as a Viking settlement, the Kingdom of Dublin became Ireland’s principal city following the Norman invasion. The city expanded rapidly from the 17th century and was briefly the second largest city in the British Empire before the Act of Union in 1800. Following the partition of Ireland in 1922, Dublin became the capital of the Irish Free State and later the Republic of Ireland.

Dublin is located on the east coast of Ireland, overlooking Dublin Bay, and is easily accessible by car, train, plane and bus. Dublin City is surrounded by the greater Dublin area or Dublin County where students can find an abundance of picturesque seaside villages, rolling mountains and rural hinterland, all within half an hour of the city centre.

Can’t miss elements of Dublin city include sampling the delicious fare at The Temple Bar Food Market and Howth Market, shopping on Grafton Street and taking a stroll through the gorgeous Phoenix Park (1752 acres!).
