Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland. Dublin is in the province of Leinster on Ireland’s east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Dublin city is divided into several districts.

Medieval Quarter is the oldest part of the city, which includes Dublin Castle, Christ Church and St Patrick’s Cathedral along with the old city walls.

Georgian Quarter which is known for its Georgian architecture. It contains some of the world’s finest Georgian buildings. It starts at St Stephen’s Green and Trinity College up to the canal.

Docklands Quarter includes “Silicon Docks”, Dublin’s Tech Quarter located in the Grand Canal Dock area. It used to be a derelict part of the city, but has undergone a huge revitalisation with the development of offices and apartments.

Cultural Quarter, Temple Bar is at the heart of Dublin’s social and cultural life. It was once derelict but was then revitalized.

Creative Quarter covers the area from South William Street to George’s Street, and from Lower Stephen’s Street to Exchequer Street. Its a hub of design, creativity and innovation.

Dublin has produced many prominent literary figures, including Nobel laureates William Butler Yeats, George Bernard Shaw and Samuel Beckett, Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift and the creator of Dracula, Bram Stoker. Ireland’s biggest libraries and literary museums are found in Dublin, including the National Print Museum of Ireland and National Library of Ireland.

Three branches of the National Museum of Ireland are located in Dublin: Archaeology, Decorative Arts and History, and Natural History. The same area is also home to many smaller museums. Dublin is home to the National College of Art and Design, and Dublin Institute of Design. Dublinia is a living history attraction showcasing the Viking and Medieval history of the city.

Dublin is a city with a strong underground arts scene. Temple Bar was the home of many artists in the 1980s, and spaces such as the Project Arts Centre were hubs for collectives and new exhibitions. Dublin also has many acclaimed dramatic, musical and operatic companies, including Festival Productions, Lyric Opera Productions, the Pioneers’ Musical & Dramatic Society, the Glasnevin Musical Society, Second Age Theatre Company, Opera Theatre Company and Opera Ireland. Ireland has a great love of baroque music, which is highly acclaimed at Trinity College.
