Art & Antiques Quarter

  • Rainy days
Dublin city centre's Antique Quarter on Francis Street has a variety of antique shops, galleries and restaurants.

Paris has the Left Bank and London has Portobello Road, now Dublin city has its very own Antiques Quarter. In October 2003, Francis Street's well-established and reputable traders joined forces to form Dublin's first and foremost Antique Quarter, and to launch it they published a slick little guide to Francis Street listing its many antique shops, art galleries and restaurants.

Since the 18th Century, Francis Street has been synonymous with the finest furniture and skilled craftsmanship. Now with its array of antiques, curios, contemporary art, handcrafted stationery, objects d’art, artisan foods, antique jewellery, beautiful Irish silver and a wealth of other collectible pieces, Francis Street is the perfect place to treat yourself to something special or pick up an original gift.
