the Capitol city of Ireland.
located on the east coast, Dublin was originally a viking, then Anglo-Saxon port, because places like Dun-Laoghaire make ideal natural ports. the name comes from the Gaelic 'dubh linn' meaning black lake.
Dublin is home to almost half the 4.8 million people living in Ireland.
Dublin is traditionally divided into the more affluent south, and less affluent north sides by the liffy river.
notes for visitors:
Temple bar, in the middle of Dublin city has the best night life.
Defontain's in temple bar( on the right as you exit the allyway through the central bank) has the best pizza you will ever eat.
Traditional Irish food is just potatoes...don't bother.
Try the pubs, but they're not all good... choose carefully.
there are no leprechauns in Ireland. If you ask about them you're liable to quickly end a conversation.
The countryside, like with many countries, is nice to look at, but none too interesting.
Ireland is expensive, by any countries standards. notably, Alcohol, clothes, and taxis are well above average.
good craic is not an illigal substance, it's slang for fun.
Dublin is the capitol of Ireland
