Informations

Dublin (, locally ; Irish: Baile Átha Cliath [ˈbˠalʲə aːhə ˈclʲiə; ˌbʲlʲaː ˈclʲiə]) is the capital and largest city of Ireland. Situated on a bay on the east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey, it lies within the province of Leinster. It's bordered on the south by the Dublin Mountains, a part of the Wicklow Mountains range. It has a metropolitan area population of 1,173,179, while the population of the Dublin Region (formerly County Dublin) as of 2016 was 1,347,359. The population of the Greater Dublin Area was 1,904,806 per the 2016 census.There is archaeological debate regarding exactly where Dublin was established by the Gaels in or before the 7th century AD.



Later enlarged as a Viking settlement, the Kingdom of Dublin, the city became Ireland's principal settlement after the Norman invasion. The city expanded rapidly in the 17th century and was temporarily the 2nd largest city in the British Empire after the Acts of Union in 1800. After the partition of Ireland in 1922, Dublin became the capital of the Irish Free State, later renamed Ireland. Dublin is a historic and modern centre for education, the arts, management and business. As of 2018 the city was listed by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network (GaWC) as a global city, with a ranking of"Alpha −", which places it among the top thirty cities in the world.
