Dublin capitol city of Ireland and also largest.t is officially known in Irish as Baile Átha Cliath,  The English name comes from the Irish Dubh Linn meaning "black pool". It is located near the midpoint of Ireland's east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey and at the centre of the Dublin Region. Originally founded as a Viking settlement, it evolved into the Kingdom of Dublin and became the island's primary city following the Norman invasion. Much more interesting informations about this beautiful city  HERE
