Capel Street. Welcome To Dublin’s Most Diverse Neighbourhood

It’s Dublin’s most diverse street, where traditional pubs sit side by side with trendy cafés. On Capel Street €10 can get you a three course meal or a single bottle of craft beer. It’s a place where old meets new. It’s a place where you can browse for antique bargains or buy a blow up doll, depending on how your weekend is going to pan out. Despite still being home to no less than three sex shops Capel street has largely shrugged off its seedy reputation of yesteryear. Home to a raft of new cafés, bars, restaurants and businesses, it’s one of the hottest places in the city right now.

It’s vibrant, it’s gritty, it’s edgy, it’s trendy, it’s alternative, it’s multicultural and we love it. Ladies and gents, we give you Capel street:
