It’s all about the arts in Smithfield. Whether it’s an indie film you fancy or some quirky handmade crafts, you won’t be looking far. With the best of Dublin right on our doorstep, we don’t plan on seeing you much.

On Your Doorstep

Transport links, street art, ‘grammable grub’. It’s all right here. Not to mention the odd distillery and/or brewery. If you’re that way inclined.

Definitely one not to miss if you happen to be staying at The Hendrick Smithfield on the 8th of September. While you’ll benefit from the delicious food courtesy of the Smithfield and Stonybatter Festival, the Busker Fleadh will provide the entertainment. Many talented buskers and street performers will take to Smithfield Square to celebrate culture and music in one. No matter your music taste, your age or your cultural background, the Busker Fleadh won’t disappoint!

BlueFire Festival – 21st of September 2019

BlueFire is a social enterprise whose aim is to empower young people aged between 13 and 30 to encourage cultural collaboration and acceptance. The festival has become the headline event of the organisation and has become hugely successful in the last number of years. Once again Smithfield Square becomes its stage and offers a space where diverse cultures can meet and express themselves through performance, art and music. It’s a brilliant way of touching base with Dublin and the many different cultures that found a home here.
