THE DOCKLANDS AREA WAS A HUGE CONSTRUCTION SITE BACK IN OCTOBER 2018
It is many months since I last visited the Docklands area of the city so I might try to visit before Christmas to see how many of the projects have been completed.
Dublin Docklands is an area of the city of Dublin, Ireland, on both sides of the River Liffey, roughly from Talbot Memorial Bridge eastwards to the 3Arena.
In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, the docklands area was regenerated as an extension of the business hub of Dublin’s International Financial Services Centre (IFSC). By 2008 the area had over 599 enterprises. While growth slowed considerably due to the post-2008 Irish economic downturn, since 2014, property values and development activity has made a recovery.
New infrastructure, built in the area in the 21st century, has included the Samuel Beckett Bridge and the LUAS Docklands extension. Venues, including the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, the refurbished 3Arena and the Convention Centre Dublin are also in the area.
