City of Dublin
Dublin, the capital of Ireland, dates its origins to 988 AD with the Norman Vikings as its first settlers. Dublin's history was tumultuous, growing from a small walled medieval town into a wealthy city within the British Empire. Ireland gained independence in 1922 and Dublin experienced some of the most severe fighting during the Irish Rebellion which established the Irish Free States.
Today, Dublin's Illustrious cultural and educational past provides a backdrop to the now modern city. With numerous theatres, shops, museums, universities and sports, there is always something to learn, experience and explore.
