Antique Quarter Francis Street, Dublin 8
Paris has the Left Bank and London has Portobello Road, now Dublin has its very own Antiques Quarter. As of October 2003, Francis Street's well-established and reputable traders have joined forces to form Dublin's first and foremost Antique Quarter, and to launch it they have 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, objets d'art, artisan foods, antique jewellery, beautiful Irish silver and wealth of other collectible pieces, Francis Street is the perfect place to treat yourself to something special or pick up an original gift

Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.
Really nice hotel, staff very helpful. Bed very comfy and rooms nice and warm, would recommend it to all.
