Meath Street and Francis Street in Dublin's Liberties are two of the most historically significant streets in Dublin, with their origins rooted in the expansion of the medieval western suburb of the city. The buildings in the area have seen much change in recent years but a number of historic buildings still remain, some of which are amongst the oldest in Dublin.
As of October 2003, Francis Street's well-established and reputable traders have joined forces to form Dublin's first Antiques Quarter, and to launch it they published a guide to Francis Street listing its many antique shops, art galleries and restaurants.
Since the 18th Century, Francis Street has been associated with the finest furniture and skilled craftsmanship. Now with its array of antiques, curios, contemporary art, handcrafted stationery, objets d’art, artisan foods, antique jewellery, beautiful Irish silver and wealth of other collectible pieces, Francis Street is the perfect place to treat yourself to something special or pick up an original gift.
