Dublin

Dublin is a modern metropolis, a large and sophisticated European city on the cutting edge of innovations in film, design, music, and architecture. It’s also the youngest city in Europe, with the majority of its residents under the age of 30! Since the economic boom of the early 1990s earned this capital city the nickname of the “Celtic Tiger,” its population is increasingly multicultural and its cultural scene has an international flavor, an incubator for artistic and multimedia innovation.
