The Liberties could become Dublin’s newest foodie quarter, according to the Sunday Times. The revival that’s currently taking place in the neighbourhood is spurring a wave of dining opportunities. Despite a growing workforce, increasing tourism numbers and student dwellings, the area is currently lacking in quality restaurants and cafes, but things are beginning to change.
With a boost in footfall coming from a number of student accommodation and office developments in The Liberties, there is now an attractive possibility to focus more on the area’s evening economy. Mannings on Thomas Street have already extended opening times until 7pm, while Tivoli Backstage, a restaurant and entertainment venue, has just opened on Francis Street. The article also talks about Luncheonette in NCAD with its produce coming from the urban farm next door, Arthur’s Pub which is popular among The Digital Hub and GEC employees, Caffe Comino, the new Italian restaurant on Cornmarket, and the “hipster den” off Clanbrassil Street that is The Fumbally cafe.
A sign of great things to come in The Liberties, the full article about the foodie hub can be read here.
