Dublin, the capital of Ireland, is located in the province of Leinster on Ireland’s east coast and it sits at mouth of the River Liffey. The city’s name is derived from the Old Irish Gaelic “Dubh Lind,” which means “Black Pool” and refers to a dark lake that had been formed by the junction of the River Liffey and the River Poddle.
