Dublin

destination-hero

The city on the River Liffey was founded in 841 AD and was ruled by everyone from the Vikings to the Danes to the English until Irish Independence was finally won in 1922. In more recent times, the economic boom time referred to as the Celtic Tiger led to exciting developments and growth in Dublin. During this affluent surge, many business popped up, the Spire of Dublin was created and a light rail system was installed, all leading to the creation of a more modern city. But like the rest of the world, the depression that started in 2008 had challenging outcomes for Dublin and Ireland as a whole, and the city is still working today to revive what was lost. Fortunately, things look like they’re leveling out; super high prices that were commonplace in Dublin during the height of the Tiger are coming down to more realistic levels across all industries. Plus, creative and entrepreneurial projects are adding depth to the city’s financial structure and making Dublin a more exciting place to visit and live in. The city today is a picture of Medieval architecture and mannerisms mingling with 19th-century vestiges and modern-day extravagances.
