Dublin, the capital of Ireland, stretches along the east coast of the island. The city's port is located on the Irish Sea, which separates Great Britain from Ireland. From the Irish word "Duibhlinn", which means "black pond", the Vikings already derived the deep, black sea. With around 527,000 inhabitants, Dublin is also the largest city in the country. The river Liffey divides the city centrally into the northern and southern part.From trendy districts to sandy beaches
The Irish capital offers a diverse variety. Districts like the Temple Bar District invite you to culinary highlights and offer a paradise of small shops, second-hand clothes and music. Along the Liffey, dreamlike parks and cultural buildings alternate which are worth a visit. The natural sandbank of Bull Island and the kilometre-wide beach Sandymount Beach in the south of the city offer a contrast.Trouble-free mobility in the capital on the move
