Dublin celebrated its millennium, as a city, in 1988, but has been inhabited for more than one thousand years. There is evidence that there were human settlements in Dublin since mesolithic times. The city's Irish name, Baile Átha Cliath - 'Town of the Hurdle Ford' - came from early Celtic settlers.

The arrival of the Vikings in the 10th century AD had a huge impact on the city. This Viking settlement, known as 'Dyfflin' or 'Dubh Linn', grew to 5,000 by the middle of the 11th century. Anglo-Norman invasions began at the end of the 12th century, with many of the Danes settling in the area and intermarrying with the local people.

Population growth began in earnest in the 17th century. However, it was during the next century that Dublin began growing into the city as it is known today. The Georgian streets and buildings constructed by the Protestants helped Dublin achieve the position as the British Empire's Second City.

With the Act of Union in 1800, however, Dublin lost its parliament, and difficult times followed. These culminated in 1916 with the Easter Rising, where Irish nationalists took over various buildings in Dublin, including the General Post Office. Many buildings were destroyed during the uprising, and during the Civil War which followed.

Ireland became the centre of government in an independent republic in 1949, when the Irish Free State left the British Commonwealth and became the Republic of Ireland. From the 1950s onwards many of the fine town houses fell into disrepair or were just torn down to make room for ugly concrete structures or mass housing. But Dublin has come a long way since then and much of the city has be redeveloped or revitalised. Today, Dublin has regained its status as a European capital.
