Directions to Liberty Market
One of Dublin's longest running markets, Liberty Market is right in the heart of the city centre in the Liberties area - just a short hop from Christ Church Cathedral. The Market is also around the corner from The Guinness Storehouse, so you could quite easily combine all three of these destinations in an afternoon's sightseeing.
Located on bustling Meath Street (off Thomas Street), it's a treasure trove packed from floor to ceiling with household goods, clothing, food, cosmetics, books, handbags, beauty products, toys and much more.
This is a taste of the 'real' Dublin at its non-touristy best. You won't find any fancy frontage or standoffish staff here - Liberty Market is an excellent example of the local down-to-earth vibe. Thanks to the lack of more 'polished' premises and 'posh' presentation, you reap the rewards. The prices are that much lower when merchants don't have to pay the considerable overheads which can apply to shops in the upscale retail areas in town.
As they say at Liberty Market - "why pay more?" - and that's not just a slogan, it's the way they do business.
Opening Hours: Thurs 10.00-15.30, Fri 10.00-16.00, Sat 10.00-17.00. Open Sundays in December.
