The Irish city of Dublin is the capital of Ireland and lies in the province of Leinster on the east coast of Ireland, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Dating back to the Viking age, Dublin began to rapidly expand in the 17th century. Today, the city attracts millions of visitors every year to experience everything the city has to offer. One of Dublin's oldest monuments is the 13th century Dublin Castle which was founded after the Norman invasion. Trinity College, Dublin is also a popular visitor destination in order to see the Book of Kells which is an illustrated manuscript created by Irish monks in around 800 AD. One of the most photographed sights in Dublin is the Ha'penney Bridge which is an old iron footbridge that spans the River Liffey. This is considered to be one of Dublin's most iconic landmarks.
Dublin Port is the busiest passenger ferry port in Ireland, serving 1.5 million passengers per year to destinations in the UK and Europe. The port has three terminals and lies at the mouth of the River Liffey, which is under 3 km from the city centre.
