Dublin

Dublin is the primate and capital city of Ireland. It is a historical and contemporary cultural centre for the island of Ireland as well as a modern centre of education, the arts, administrative function, economy and industry.

The city has a world-famous literary history, having produced many prominent literary figures, including Nobel laureates William Butler Yeats, George Bernard Shaw and Samuel Beckett. Other influential writers and playwrights from Dublin include Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift and the creator of Dracula, Bram Stoker. It is arguably most famous, however, as the location of the greatest works of James Joyce. His most celebrated work, Ulysses, is set in Dublin and full of topical detail.

Dublin is also the focal point for much of Irish Art and the Irish artistic scene. The Book of Kells, a world-famous manuscript produced by Celtic Monks in A.D. 800 and an example of Insular art, is on display in Trinity College.

Dublin is home to many acclaimed dramatic, musical and operatic companies. Ireland is well known for its love of baroque music, which is highly acclaimed at Trinity College.

There is a vibrant nightlife in Dublin, which is reputedly one of the most youthful cities in Europe, with estimates of 50% of citizens being younger than 25. Furthermore in 2007, and again in 2009, Dublin was voted the friendliest city in Europe. Like the rest of Ireland, there are pubs right across the city centre. The area around St. Stephen's Green, especially Harcourt Street, Camden Street, Wexford Street and Leeson Street, is a centre for some of the most popular nightclubs and pubs in Dublin. Live music is popularly played on streets and at venues throughout Dublin in general.
