Smithfield, Dublin 7

Smithfield, meaning "Farm Market" is an area on the north side of Dublin. Its focal point is a public square, formerly an open market, now officially called Smithfield Plaza, but known locally as Smithfield Square or Smithfield Market.
Notable landmarks include the Old Jameson Whiskey Distillery and the Observation Tower
Smithfield is one of the most historic areas in Dublin city. Horse and Cattle trading have taken place here since 1664.

Smithfield village has been developed into a sophisticated residential, commercial and cultural district, and also a contemporary cultural landscape, a village within the city.

Smithfield's iconic tower, and its observation deck, is no longer accessible to the public, as it has long-since been closed due to health and safety concerns. Today, the tower's exterior - which is loosely clad in sagging, protective green safety nets - acts as a highly-visible marker for the area's continuing and unexpected decline in fortunes. 

The cobbles public space hosts a number of cultural events throughout the year such a seasonal markets, a Christmas season ice-rink and concerts.
The Smithfield area is also home to the Dublin City Fruit Vegetable and Flower Market. The Council recently demolished the adjacent Fish Market building and plan to redevelop the rest of the site.

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.
