    The name “Dublin” comes from the Gaelic dbh linn or “black pool” where a deep pool formed by the meeting of the “Poddle stream” and the “River Liffey” at Dublin Castle.

    The Vikings were the founder of Dublin on the south bank of the River Liffey in 841. At that time it was named “Dubh Linn” meaning “black pool”. Unluckily, Dublin is not as safe as other regions of Ireland; Because of density of population, it has a large scale of crimes for burglaries and incidents of thefts often take place across the city.
