Dublin Streets: The 8 Coolest Streets to Visit in Dublin
Dublin as a whole has many beautiful galleries, stylish stores, and great places to eat, but some areas have a lot of great places to visit. Read on to find out which Dublin streets you should go straight to.
Dublin Street: Drury Street.
Grafton Street is one of Dublin’s two main shopping streets. This area, called the Creative Quarter, is just a few streets away. In recent years, it has become one of the hippest places in the city. On Drury Street, you won’t find any high street stores or chain stores. Instead, you’ll find independent coffee shops, shops that sell high-quality Irish design, trendy interiors and gift stores, cool cocktail bars, boutique florists, and The Printmakers Gallery.
Dublin Street: Capel Street.
Capel Street is one of the oldest streets in Dublin, and it is now home to great cafes like Brother Hubbard North, modern gastropubs, and a number of second-hand shops where you can find great deals. This place is where the famous gay bar Pantibar is located. Panti Bliss, Ireland’s favorite drag queen, came up with the idea for Pantibar. At its northern end, where it meets Bolton Street, BoCo, one of the best new pizza places in the city, is located. The Complex, a Northside arts center, is also near Capel Street.
Dublin Street: South Richmond Street to South Great George’s Street
The long, straight stretch that connects the city center to Ranelagh and Rathmines is actually made up of five streets, but the lines between them are often blurry in Dubliners’ minds, and they are all worth exploring. Start at the Victorian red-brick indoor market on George’s Street. Walk down Aungier Street and stop at Network for a specialty coffee or an Aungier Danger doughnut. Whelan’s is a famous bar and music venue on Wexford Street, and Camden Street has some of the best new restaurants in the city. The Bernard Shaw pub on South Richmond Street is a great place for hipsters to end the night.
Dublin Street: The street is called Manor Street.
Manor Street is the main street in the Stoneybatter neighborhood, which is about a half-hour walk from O’Connell Street. Stoneybatter is cool because it is an old part of Dublin that has been brought back to life. The shops on this street show how trendy the area is. Love Supreme is one of the most beautiful cafés in the city, and L. Mulligan Grocer is probably the best gastropub. At different turns off Manor Street, you can find other gems down narrow side streets, like the Slice café and Lilliput Stores, a tiny grocery, deli, and coffee shop right next to an independent publisher with the same name.
Dublin Street: The Cow’s Lane
Even though it’s a lane and not a street like most on this list, this one has a lot more to offer than you might think. It is part of the Temple Bar district and has the cute and tasty Queen of Tarts café, the Dublin Ink tattoo parlour, the lovely independent Gutter Bookshop, and the first brick-and-mortar store for Irish online interior store April and the Bear. If that isn’t enough, every Saturday there is an outdoor art and craft market called Designer Mart.
Dublin Street: Crown Alley
Crown Alley is another short but sweet Temple Bar street. It is one of Dublin’s more colorful streets, with businesses like the Fresh vintage store and Freebird Records, which sells new and used vinyl, having street art on their walls. Like Cow’s Lane, this narrow backstreet is full of interesting places, like the Irish art and design shop Jam Art Factory, the mysterious-looking Vintage Cocktail Club bar, and the Klaw seafood shack.
Dublin Street: Essex Street
West Essex Street is a cobbled street that runs perpendicular to Cow’s Lane. It is full of unique clothing stores like Scout and Tamp & Stitch, which has its own little café. It is also home to the Gaiety School of Acting and the Cow’s Lane Designer Studio, a group of designers and artists from Dublin who work together. At the eastern end of the street, which is closer to the city center, there are cool concept stores, friendly bars, and the multidisciplinary Project Arts Centre.
Dublin Street: Street Francis
The Guinness Storehouse and grand cathedrals can be found in the Liberties, which is another of Dublin’s oldest parts. It’s also where Francis Street is, which is officially the best place in the city to shop for antiques. The Cross Gallery, a small modern art gallery, is also here. So is the Tivoli Theater. One of the best new coffee shops in Dublin, Two Pups, is at the end of the street, right next to the popular vintage clothing store Space Out Sister.
