Irish name: Áth Cliath

County Dublin is one of the twenty-six counties of the Republic of Ireland and one of the thirty-two counties of the island of Ireland. The county contains the city of Dublin, the capital of Ireland and is located on the east coast of Ireland in the province of Leinster.

County Dublin was one of the first of the counties of Ireland to be formally structured, in the late twelfth century by King John of England. The population of the county is 1,187,176 according to the 2006 census, making it the most populous county in the country.

In 1994, County Dublin was dissolved and the area divided into the modern administrative counties of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, Fingal and South Dublin. Today, these areas collectively make up the Dublin Region (Réigiúin Átha Cliath) and come under the remit of the Dublin Regional Authority. While administration of the county has been split and the county dissolved from a political-administrative perspective, the county persists as an entity in other categories such as geography studies, postal and census services, Gaelic Athletic Association teams, and as an entity with which people continue to identify.
