One of Europe’s most youthful cities, the charm and ancient heritage of Old Dublin still shines through amongst today’s emerging European tech hub and growing multi-cultural population. For a true taste of Irish culture, Dublin is the place.
Founded as a Viking settlement, Dublin’s history as Ireland’s principal city dates back to the reign of King John. As befits a city with such a long history, Dublin is packed with monuments and buildings that date from Dublin Castle in 1204, to Trinity College founded in 1592, which houses the Book of Kells through the elegant Georgian Terraces and beyond.
