Dublin meaning “town of the hurdled ford”, is the capital city of Ireland.The English name for the city is derived from the Irish name Dubhlinn, meaning “black pool”. Dublin is situated near the midpoint of Ireland’s east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey and the centre of the Dublin Region.

Originally founded as a Viking settlement in the 9th century, it evolved into the Kingdom of Dublin and became the island’s principal city following the Norman invasion. Following the partition of Ireland in 1922, the new parliament, the Oireachtas, was located in Leinster House. Dublin became the capital of the Irish Free State and later the Republic of Ireland.
