Dublin is the largest city and capital of Ireland, with a population of 1.5 million. More than a third of the entire country's population now lives in the city, which is at the center of an economic boom that began in the 1990s. The River Liffey divides Dublin into north and south, spanned by the landmark Ha'Penny Bridge. The buzzing, prosperous part of Dublin lies mostly south of the Liffey, where most of the best sights, hotels, restaurants, and shops can be easily walked in an hour. Dublin has become one of Europe's chicest cities, with trendy coffee shops, juice bars, and fantastic restaurants. It is also home to a number of historic and interesting religious sights, including no less than three cathedrals and the famous Book of Kells.
