The Four Courts    Grafton Street

Dublin is an historical city and is one of the smallest counties in Ireland. There is a variety of scenery from the rock-domed hills in the south to the limestone plains and the coast of the Irish Sea. The name Dublin comes from the Irish Dubhlinn (Dark Pool), and it is one of the best capital cities in Europe having a population of over one million people.

Dublin is a fast moving, thriving modern city with an abundance of entertainment from theatre to art galleries, night clubs to museums, cinemas, sporting venues such as an ice rink, horse-racing, moto-cross, swimming and athletics. At the edge of the city, on the western side, is one of the most famous enclosed parks in the world - Pheonix Park; it has the official residence of the President of Ireland, the U.S. Ambassador and the Apostolic Nunciature; the headquarters of the Garda and the Zoological Gardens. The visitor will find a warm welcome around the streets of Dublin, and of course, Guinness in any of the old pubs on the ancient streets of the city together with the music from the pubs of the capital. Also there are many tours of Dublin, and these are usually of good value with a friendly atmosphere.
