Dublin is the Republic of Ireland's capital and largest city, named from the Irish dubh linn, meaning "black pool". The name comes from the fact that the site of the city was formerly a black, slimy expanse of mud through which the River Liffey flowed sluggishly to the sea. It now has a pleasant setting on the east coast of the Irish Sea, looking out over Dublin Bay, with a long, sandy shoreline to its north.
