The Dublin region (formerly County Dublin) is named after the city of Dublin, which is the capital city of Ireland.
Most people think of Dublin as the city but to the North and south-eastern corners it touches on the Irish Sea. Here you will find some pretty coastal town's, villages and fishing harbours.
