Country or City?
Dublin, with almost 500,000 people, is the capital of Ireland. Belfast also has close to 500,00 people and is the capital of Northern Ireland. Both cities began as shipping ports through the Irish Sea around 488AD. They possess ancient charm, culture, and the character of a historical locale while offering the advantages of a large city.
There are many villages strewn throughout the country which provides plenty of culture and ethnicity.
