1. Dubh Linn

The name Dublin comes from the Irish word Dubh Linn, which translates to “black pool.” It is derived from Old Irish Gaelic. The Dubh Linn was a lake used by the Vikings to tie up their trade ships.

2. Small county, big population

Though the county of Dublin is Ireland’s third smallest county by physical size, it is home to roughly a third of Ireland’s population. This is mainly due to Dublin City, Ireland’s capital and most populous city. Dublin City and County together account for more than 1.3 million inhabitants!

3. A youthful city

Dublin’s population is very young, especially for a European city: Almost 50% of Dublin’s population is under the age of 30!

4. The Silicon Valley of Europe

Dublin has been named among the top European cities for foreign direct investment by the Financial Times.  Many start-ups and large companies have now found their way to Dublin, including many technology companies. Dublin has evolved into a data-driven tech hub in recent years. It is home to major technology companies such as Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Tinder and Airbnb.

5. The Black Stuff

In addition to large tech companies, Dublin is also home to another hugely successful company: Guinness. There are over 10 million pints of Guinness produced every day in Dublin alone!

6. The Irish pub

Of the 7.000 pubs across the country, over 750 are located in Dublin. In addition, Ireland’s oldest pub, the Brazen Head, is located in Dublin. This pub has been running since 1198!
