Craft Food & Drink

There’s a revival of craft distilling and brewing in Dublin, and The Liberties is at the heart of it! While historic brands such as Roe’s, Powers and Millar may be long gone, an exciting batch of new contemporary brands is helping to reinvent Dublin’s ‘Golden Triangle’.

Discover the Teeling Whiskey Distillery on Newmarket, the first working distillery in the city in over 100 years, and enjoy its great visitor centre. Or take a tour at Alltech’s stunning Pearse Lyons Distillery at St James, with its glass spire. Sample some of 5 Lamps brews or upcoming DOT Brewery …they’re made right here in #D8. And the area remains the Home of Guinness, one of Ireland’s most iconic brands. As the descendants of Arthur might say, they still have almost 8,750 years left on a 9,000 year lease. The Open Gate Brewery on James Street serves up experimental brews and some rediscovered older recipes, while Roe & Co Irish Whiskey is set to open its doors at the former Guinness power station in summer 2019.

The historic market space Newmarket and Meath Street continue to reflect the strong tradition of quality independent food production and market activity in the area, while quality restaurants and cafés throughout the Liberties provide the best in lunch and dining. There are opportunities for more food and drink businesses in the area. Its a great time to take a fresh look at #D8.
