Plan Your Visit

Dublin (Irish Baile Átha Cliath) is the capital and largest city of Ireland.

Dublin is the famously vibrant capital city of Ireland bursting with a variety of surprising experiences, where city living thrives side by side with the natural outdoors.

Beyond Dublin, Ireland has some of the most beautiful scenery in Europe, seen for instance in the Wild Atlantic Way and one of Europe’s most ancient cultures: The famous passage tomb at Newgrange is older than the pyramids.
