Dublin, Irish Dubh Linn, Norse
Dyfflin (“Black Pool”), also called Baile Átha Cliath (“Town of the Ford
of the Hurdle”), city, capital of Ireland, located on the east coast in the
province of Leinster. Situated at the head of Dublin Bay of the Irish Sea,
Dublin is the country’s chief port, centre of financial and commercial power,
and seat of culture. It is also a city of contrasts, maintaining an uneasy
relationship between reminders of earlier political and economic conditions and
symbols of present-day life and prosperity.
Dublin is a warm and welcoming
city, known for the friendliness of its people and famous for its craic
(“crack”)—that mixture of repartee, humour, intelligence, and acerbic and
deflating insight that has attracted writers, intellectuals, and visitors for
Dublin’s geographic site is
superb. Situated at the head of a beautiful bay, the city straddles the River
Liffey where it breaks eastward through a hill-ringed plain to the shores of the
Irish Sea. The dark bog water draining into the river made the “black pool”
that gave the city its name.
Apart from the port area and the
docks, Dublin is a low-built, steepled city, with few buildings dating from
before the 17th century. The Roman Catholic churches are 19th- and 20th-century
structures. The 17-story Liberty Hall (built 1961–65 as a trade-union
headquarters), long Dublin’s tallest building, has been joined by a spate of
new high-rise offices and apartments. Still, most of the buildings are no higher
than 5 or 6 stories.
Founded in 988 A.D. as a Viking
settlement Dublin is the capital of, and largest city in, the Republic of
Ireland. Similar to much of the rest of northwestern Europe, Dublin experiences
a climate with cool summers, mild winters, and a lack of temperature extremes.
The average temperature in October is 11 °C.
Little town Dún Laoghaire
(pronounced Dun leary), in which is conference held, is spread around 200 years
old harbour. You can walk the 2,6km-long Pier with local Teddys Ice Cream in
your hand or just rent a bike and discover Dún Laoghaire yourself.
