With the capital city at its heart, County Dublin represents the most visited county in Ireland. Most visitors come to visit the city, exploring the pubs of Temple Bar neighborhood and soaking up Irish culture one pint of Guinness at a time. Beyond its urban core, the county offers cozy seaside villages where visitors can devour freshly caught fish and hear Irish spoken as a first language. Seek out one of the few Gaeltacht, or Irish-language communities, remaining in the county here.
