Dublin is an exciting city, with lots on offer everywhere you look. As the capital of Ireland, it still has many vestiges of the rich history this country has to offer, which can be admired in the Irish National Museum and the Irish National Gallery.
You will enjoy discovering this city, which combines the advantages of a big city but intimacy of smaller towns.
Moreover, Dublin has a major cultural scene, with its many theatres, traditional literature (James Joyce, Oscar Wilde etc), and its music. Entertainment is not lacking here, like their world famous pubs.
We have established many partnerships with companies in Dublin, from small family-run companies to large multinationals.
