More so than in the rest of the city, the Dublin Brogue, renowned in Irish Literature, can be heard on every corner of The Liberties. Walking down Meath Street one may at first be taken aback by what they hear – the charming “Real Dublin” accent. “Twoferaeurooo” springs to mind! It’s our very own Liberties Lingo.

Whether your native language is English, Spanish, French or German, check out our handy lingo guide below to some key local phrases. To help you find your way through the area you can also download The Liberties Map and Visitor Guide here.
