Built by the Vikings on the river Liffey during the 9th century, the former "Kingdom of Dublin" is Ireland's largest city and haven to Europe's youngest population. Hundreds of U.S. companies make Dublin their home, thanks to the Irish city's strategic location as a gateway to the European Union. A diverse citizenry of more than 100 different nationalities, some of the most famous pubs in the world, and a rich cultural, literary, and artistic heritage are all part of Dublin's appeal.
