About Dublin Ferry
Dublin is the capital and largest city in Ireland. It is situated near the midpoint of Ireland's east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey and at the centre of the Dublin Region. Founded as a centre of Viking settlement, the city has been Ireland's capital since medi�val times. It was largest Viking settlement outside of Scandinavia. Ever since then, Dublin has suffered many wars and conflicts.
Eearly 20th century Dublin finally established its own identity. Today Dublin is a modern, cosmopolitan city where tradition and cultural heritage have merged over the centuries to create an atmosphere unique to Dublin.
Places of interest in Dublin are the Malahide Castle, a beautifully restored residence with distinctive elegance and charm set on 250 acres of park land in the pretty seaside town of Malahide, the Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin's oldest building and the Dalkey Castle & Heritage Centre, the medieval towerhouse with its Murder hole.
