For the last couple of centuries, the two main reasons to visit Smithfield were to buy a horse at the local equestrian market and to see the red brick distillery where Ireland’s best-known whiskey, Jameson, was made. Today, thanks to an urban renewal plan, Smithfield has corporate accommodation and is slowly been making a comeback. Each of the square’s 300,000 cobblestones was uprooted, cleaned, polished and put back! Tall, contemporary-looking lampposts bloomed on the circumference of the plus-size plaza, and industrial-chic apartment and retail buildings rose on the western side of the square.
Smithfield is a quaint area, with small and independent shops such as the Dublin Vintage Factory. If you are looking for more mainstream places to shop at during your short stay in Smithfield then the Jervis Shopping Centre is just walking distance away - featuring shops such as Topshop, JD Sports, Forever 21 and Marks & Spencers.
The capital’s iconic DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) system is a fast and frequent way of travelling in the city. The DART hugs the Irish Sea coast for much of its journey, making for one of the most scenic suburban rail routes in Europe. DART is an electric rail system following the eastern coastline from Malahide and/or Howth in north Dublin, right through the city centre to southern suburbs like Blackrock, Dún Laoghaire, Dalkey and onwards to the coastal towns of Bray and Greystones in County Wicklow.
