Dublin

The capital and largest city in Ireland, Dublin sits on a bay along the coast of the Irish Sea, and is home to more than one-third of the country’s population. Though more famous for its friendly locals and a logocentric culture that has made it a UNESCO City of Literature, it is also a technology hub, with the European headquarters of many well-known tech giants located here. Despite the recent economic expansion, some things have stayed true to tradition – classic pubs line the cobblestone streets, and the nightlife lives up to its reputation.
