Raised on songs and stories, heroes of renown;
Ah, the passing tales of glory that once was Dublin town
When you say “the east” in Ireland, you're largely talking about Dublin. This vibrant city is
the seat of Ireland's government and the center of its youth culture, athletics, and nightlife.
With a population of 527,000, the city is home to well over 10% of Ireland's population, and
it's also hands-down the most tourist-heavy part of the island.
