Visit a world famous skateboarding spot
While some of the city’s most popular skate spots remain clandestine, for the travelling skater there are plenty of legal spots to check out in Dublin including SofD and Clive’s of Hill Street, and you’re only a DART ride away from the Greytones outdoor park. Look out for feature documentary Hill Street, charting the evolution of Irish skate culture, coming soon.
Take in some (street) art
Bansky isn’t the only artist from this side of the pond currently taking their work stateside. Irish artist Maser recently took to the streets of Chicago to collaborate on a project with poet Malcolm London but you can enjoy plenty of Maser’s work on the streets and buildings that make up the fine city of Dublin. There’s something about his work that makes it feel like part of the city itself, like it’s always been there, on that wall, forever. Maser’s They Are Us, a collaboration with singer Damien Dempsey, was a particular highlight for us but the more inquisitive will find plenty more work throughout the city.
