Dublin area ranked 15th coolest in the world


A Dublin postcode was ranked 15th coolest district in the world by Time Out magazine, placing itself above major cities like Paris and Amsterdam.

Dublin 8, mostly located on the south bank of the River Liffey, ranked 15th in Time Out’s annual ranking.

The magazine polled 27,000 people around the world to come up with its 49 coolest neighborhoods in the world, while local experts were also asked to rank their favorite places for food, entertainment, culture and community.

Time Out said the region captures the essence and charm of the Irish capital at a time when the city is being built with “cookie-cutter hotels and skyscrapers”.

According to Time Out, Dublin 8 has retained much of its original architecture, while many positive changes have also been made to the area over the past year.

The magazine notes that the area is full of vintage stores and second-hand shops in addition to street art, markets, cafes and restaurants and recommends a visit to The Fumbaly, a dog-friendly cafe with delicious coffee. He also encourages people to stroll through War Memorial Gardens or Phoenix Park.

The magazine also recommends a visit to the Irish Museum of Modern Art and a visit to one of the area’s many distilleries, including Teelings, Stillgarden and the Pearse Lyons Distillery.

Time Out adds that Lucky’s Pub has been transformed into a cultural hotspot for the region and encourages people to visit the “Wild Lights” art installation when it opens at Dublin Zoo on October 28.

The magazine ranked Nørrebro, Copenhagen as the coolest neighborhood in the world for 2021, with Andersonville, Chicago and Jongno 3-ga, Seoul completing the top three.

Leith, Edinburgh’s former trading port, finished fourth in the rankings, while Chelsea ranked sixth as New York’s coolest neighborhood.
