Developers have jumped on the residential potential in Dublin 8, part of the capital with a rich tradition that’s rapidly transforming
Cranes are hovering over the skyline of Dublin 8 as student digs shoot up. The Liberties is having a moment, the likes of which hasn’t occurred since Guinness put its stamp on the area in the late 19th and early 20th century.
It’s not just student complexes that are being built; there are a few hotels and homes for the grown-ups. Tramyard Exchange is the newest apartment development here. It’s right in the middle of the antiques quarter, at No 27 Carman’s Hall, in between Meath Street and Francis Street, with the stunning Church of St Nicholas of Myra overlooking the strip.
