With a rich and varied history from the Vikings in the 8th Century, who were responsible for paving its first streets, followed by Norman occupation, English rule and the formation of the Republic of Ireland in the 1920’s. Dublin has also had a strong cultural heritage; amongst its notable writers are Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, Jonathan Swift and playwright Samuel Beckett.
