About the Area

Cathal Brugha Street DIT is located in the heart of Dublin City Centre, set one block back from Dublin’s main thoroughfare, O’Connell Street.  Public transport is widely available in the area with Dublin Bus Network right on the doorstep and LUAS (tram) Red Line a five minute walk.

In addition, the recently competed LUAS (tram) Cross City project, extends the LUAS Green Line to provide northbound (O’Connell Street) and southbound (Marlborough Street) lines immediately outside or adjacent to the properties. Connolly and Heuston (mainline/commuter) Train Stations, and Busáras (Central) Bus Station are easily accessible offering commuter belt and national transport links.  Dublin Airport is 13 km to the North and Dublin Port ferry terminal is just under 6km to the east.

A 612 space, multi storey car park, operated by Q-Park, on Marlborough is located directly opposite the Marlborough Street elevation of Lot 1.


Cathal Brugha Street DIT is located in an Architectural Conservation Area due to the special architectural interest and character of buildings, which include the General Post Office (GPO), Gresham Hotel, Ambassador Cinema, Gate Theatre, St. Mary’s (RC), Pro Cathedral and Tyrone House (Department of Education & Skills) which are located nearby.

Key retail thoroughfares and shopping malls are minutes’ walk from the property such as Henry Street, Jervis Street Shopping Centre, Ilac Shopping Centre, Grafton Street and Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre offering high-end and high street brands.    

Croke Park stadium, a 82,300 seat stadium and the home of GAA in Ireland, is a fifteen minute walk away and is used for both sporting and entertainment events throughout the year. Plans are in hand for the development of Parnell Square, just to the north of O’Connell Street, to be turned into a cultural quarter with the construction of a new City Library, a new park and public spaces. In addition there are plans to develop the Carlton Cinema site and surrounding area on O’Connell Street into retail centre. Long established arts and cultural buildings are also located nearby including the Abbey Theatre, Hugh Lane Art Gallery, Ambassador Theatre and Savoy Cinema.
