Located on the North side of the River Liffey, Stoneybatter is Dublin’s original inner-city urban village
Situated in the midst of a city that is experiencing a cultural renaissance, Stoneybatter stands as one of the last bastions of “Old Dublin”. Long cherished traditions, customs and a strong community spirit are all central to life here.
Stoneybatter is currently home to screen-printers, gallery spaces, an independent publishing house and bookshops. The entire area is experiencing a cultural renaissance flowing from the unique Dublin spirit of the neighbourhood. You’ll also find a lithograph workshop and a recording studio here.

This tradition of local craftsmanship and creativity is fostered in this area with spaces like The Joinery providing gallery and studio spaces to the next generation of Dublin’s craftsmen and the Stoneybatter Guild providing a place for independent artists and crafters to sell their wares and pass on their skills. If you are looking to experience authentic Dublin culture, then this is the perfect place to start.
