Location & Culture

Click to Open
Dublin is one of Europe’s most youthful cities with over 50% of the population under 25.

Here you’ll find lively street life with contemporary and traditional music echoing down busy streets .

Founded as a Viking settlement, Dublin’s history as Ireland’s principal city dates back to the reign of King John. As befits a city with such a long history, Dublin is packed with monuments and buildings that date from Dublin Castle in 1204, to Trinity College founded in 1592, which houses the Book of Kells through the elegant Georgian Terraces and beyond.

From traditional Irish soda bread to colcannon, Irish cuisine can compete with the very best of European cuisine. Don’t leave without trying a rich Guinness stew, made from the drink that typifies Ireland and Dublin in particular.

CIEE wants all our students to feel welcomed, supported, and empowered to succeed while studying abroad. Local CIEE staff have provided details about conditions and cultural attitudes that students with specific identities might encounter in Dublin.
