Dublin, like most great cities, did not grow overnight. Founded by the Vikings over a thousand years ago, it has evolved through the Middle Ages and Georgian Era to become one of the friendliest and most fashionable capitals in Europe.
The name Dublin derives from the two Irish words Dubh (black) and Lynn (pool). The Black Pool was a small tidal pool formed where the River Poddle entered the River Liffey. The official Irish name for the city is Baile Atha Cliath, or the “Town of the Hurdled Ford”. This refers to an ancient ford across the River Liffey, which was situated near the modern Father Mathew Bridge.
