A place to meet, a place to do business, a place to enjoy – visit Ireland!



Dublin is one of the most popular short break destinations in Europe. Consistently featured in all top ten most visited cities rankings, Dublin is renowned for being one of the friendliest capitals in Europe, while maintaining a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Dublin is an old city, steeped in history. The Vikings were the first settlers in Dublin and the city began its life as two separate settlements, “Atha Cliath” and “Dubh Linn”. The modern name of the city is derived from these two names. “Dublin” is the internationally recognised name of the city and “Baile Atha Cliath” is the Irish translation.
