Europe's Youngest City
Dublin has Europe’s youngest population but an ancient history and rich artistic heritage. The first settlement was created by Viking invaders in 837 and historians believe it to have been the largest and one of the most important Viking trading cities. The city has been at the heart of much of Ireland’s turbulent history.
Ireland gained Independence from the British Empire in 1949, since then it has gone on to become a focal point for many huge corporations thanks to Ireland’s favourable tax laws which saw a boom in the ‘Celtic Tiger’ economy. Art, literature and business economy make Dublin school tours ideal for pupils of all ages, studying a variety of subjects.
