Coonty Dublin (Erse: Contae Átha Cliath) is ane o the twenty-sax coonties o the Republic o Ireland an ane o the thirty-twa counties o the island o Ireland. The coonty contains the ceety o Dublin, the caipital o Ireland an is locatit on the east coast o Ireland in the province o Leinster.

Coonty Dublin wis ane o the first o the counties o Ireland tae be formally structured, in the late twalt century bi King John o Ingland. The population o the coonty is 1,270,603 accordin tae the 2011 census, makkin it the maist populous coonty in the kintra.

In 1994, Coonty Dublin wis dissolvit an the area dividit intae the modren admeenistrative coonties o Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, Fingal an Sooth Dublin. The day, these areas collectively mak up the Dublin Region (Réigiúin Átha Cliath) an come unner the remit o the Dublin Regional Authority. While admeenistration o the coonty haes been split an the kintra dissolved frae a political-admeenistrative perspective, the coonty persists as an entity in ither categories such as geography studies, postal an census services, Gaelic Athletic Association teams, an as an entity wi which fowk continue tae identifee.
