“I want to give a picture of Dublin so complete that if the city suddenly disappeared from the earth it could be reconstructed out of my book.”

– James Joyce on Ulysses

Dublin.ie was designed to celebrate the very essence of Dublin; the people, places and things that make Dublin truly unique as a place to live, work, invest and study. It’s all about building a vivid picture of a progressive, diverse and multicultural modern European city and region teeming with character, and characters. Made by the city, for the city.

Here, you’ll witness Dublin from the ground up, from mountains to sea, with a particular focus upon its most valuable asset – its citizens. In a place where everybody has a story to tell, we’re lucky enough to share some of those stories. If we capture but a fraction of the colour, humour, spirit and energy that drives this town, then we’ll have succeeded.


Dublin’s Place Brand

Dublin City Council is responsible for Dublin’s place brand, the marketing brand used to attract people to live, work, invest or study in the region. At present, Dublin has two marketing brands with the other being Fáilte Ireland’s destination brand (‘Surprising by nature’). Place brands are used by cities across the globe to attract inward investment, talent and students. Dublin is a world class, compact city which makes things happen but still retains an authentic sense of community. The brand and the website will showcase the city and region whilst not shying from the grit, humour and depth of culture that make our place unique. Working together
