Every city has little pockets that become the heart of social and cultural activity and one of those places in Dublin is its squares. Scattered across the capital, these bustling hubs are popular spots for Dubliners to escape the busy city centre, for couples to stroll around admiring the architecture and a place for families to relax, play, and feed the ducks.
From medieval to modern, each of Dublin's squares offers something unique. Most notable are the five Georgian squares – built between 1750 and 1830, they show off Dublin's amazing historical architecture. Not only are the capital's squares great places to escape city life, they have also become go-to alternative venues to host pop culture, historical and artsy events.
