City Introduction

The word "Dublin" originated in the Irish word: Dubhlinn (meaning black pool). Dublin's modern Irish name Baileátha Cliath (meaning: shoal city made of reed barrier) refers to settlements beside the black pool.

Although an exact consensus has not been reached regarding the definition of "Dublin metropolitan area",  this area generally includes Dublin City and Dublin County, and Wicklow, Kildare and Meath County because the commuter belt can be extended to distant places.

Dublin, across the Liffey River, is a cultural capital that possesses a lot of universities, academies of sciences, and art galleries. Time-honored houses can be seen everywhere, all sorts of beautiful doors and windows are full of flowers and plants. The city is permeated with a thick rural breath. Many famous writers such as William Butler Yeats, Oscar Wilde, and George Bernard Shaw were born here. Dublin enjoys Europe's oldest library, and painters and travelling players' performance are often seen in open squares and streets. The Guinness Brewery in the southwest is well known for its stout, and you can overlook the whole Dublin city on the top of the exhibition hall at this factory. If you want to seek history and culture in the travel, Dublin will give you many surprises.

History and Culture

Since the 17th century, the city has begun to expand rapidly under the guidance of Wide Streets Commission. Dublin Georgia was once British Empire's second largest city next to London. Many excellent buildings of Dublin are established during this period. The Easter Rebellion of 1916 threw the city into an unstable situation, and the Anglo-Irish war and Irish Civil War caused a lot of damage to the city, many fine buildings were destroyed. The Irish Free State rebuilt many buildings of the city, and moved the parliament to Leinster House, but did not reform a government. After World War II, Dublin was still an obsolete capital whose modern development was very slow and did not show signs of a rise until the 1960s. In recent years, Dublin's infrastructure has made great improvements and state-owned and private real estate industries, transportation industries and business are all booming. Some famous Dublin streets and buildings were named after bars and businesses that once operated there.
