The Norse Kingdom of Dublin

The capital of the Guinness beer, Dublin is also known as “The Fair City”. Founded as a Viking settlement in the 9th century, “The Norse Kingdom of Dublin” is boasting today with an impressive literature, cultural and musical history, one that includes James Joyce and Oscar Wilde and a sacred manuscript that is considered the National Treasure of Ireland, “The Book of Kells”. It is a very vibrant city, with the youngest population in all of Europe and one that managed to retain an artistic, high spirited energy. It is because of this and because of other cultural, educational and humanitarian events, that this city received the title of a global city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network , ranking among the top 30 cities in the world.
