Over 600,000 feet flock weekly to these Northside streets, with its 130 cafes and restaurants serving over two million cups of steaming coffee and dishing up delicious meals for up to one million hungry revellers each week.
An area where traditional meets contemporary, visitors to Dubln One can sample Irish food or discover an array of cuisines from over 17 different ethnicities available, from African, Asian and Brazilian to Greek, Japanese, Moldovan, and Vietnamese.
Richard Guiney, CEO DublinTown said “We are really excited to bring a new identity to Dublin by highlighting the diversity and range of what Dublin One has to offer. We at DublinTown along with the businesses of Dublin One, want to encourage visitors to experience the unique busy streets, the heritage and history which is brought to life through culture, diversity and people, making Dublin One the heart and soul of Dublin city.”
To celebrate the launch, Dublin One has teamed up with photographer Peter Varga of Humans of Dublin to create an exhibition featuring individuals from the Dublin One area. Peter spent an entire day capturing and experiencing the lives of the people living and working in and enjoying what Dublin One has on offer. The photography exhibition of the ‘Humans of Dublin One’ is free to the public and will be housed in Dublin One, upon completion. Keep an eye on Dublin-one.ie for more updates.
