This pocket-sized area of Dublin, less than one square mile, is full of life – a home to generations of Dubliners, a working man’s hostel, a medieval cathedral, a well preserved eighteenth century library, one of the best used parks in the city and the iconic Burdock’s fish and chip shop.

Come and explore this unique area, take a look at Patrick’s Park through the eyes of a dog, find out what it is like to work in a shelter for homeless people and meet the Bell Ringers of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral.

Scroll through each section to hear and see stories about this very special place and its people. Roll over the “i” buttons (as seen below) for even more informational "tadbits" about the area.
