Dublin Docklands Declared Open!


With Ireland reopening at last, there are reasons to visit every corner of the city and Dublin’s Docklands area is no exception.

Now in a unique move to promote their neighbourhood the cafes, restaurants, hotels and tourist attractions of the Docklands have come together to launch a marketing campaign inviting visitors to explore what their area has to offer.

With world-class visitor attractions, plenty of wide-open space and an excellent selection of bars and restaurants, it’s got all the ingredients of a great day out.

The newly launched outdoor advertising campaign will advise people via a unique QR code about businesses and attractions that are open in their immediate location.

So if you want to know what is open in the Docklands just scan the QR code advertised on over 100 Belly Bins and you will  be brought to this landing page where you will  get a list of attractions, cafes, restaurants, shops etc that are open and the opening hours.

The list will be updated on a daily basis and you can get in touch if your business is not listed. Just send your details by clicking here.

This campaign was made possible by the support of: Dublin City Council Smart Docklands, iHubbs Media, Fáilte Ireland, Dublin Port Co, Waterways Ireland, Clayton Hotel Cardiff Lane and EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum.

Aileesh Carew, Director of Sales and Marketing at EPIC said: “After the longest closure in our history, we are delighted to have reopened the doors to EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum. We want to encourage residents of the Docklands and visitors to our museum to explore the area and are delighted to support this campaign. We are all in this together and by joining hands, we can work together to ensure that every visitor has a great day out in the Docklands.”

EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is an interactive museum that is wheelchair accessible and buggy and child friendly and shares the lives and stories of women and men that are not commonly found in history books. The technology in the museum makes the EPIC experience an accessible, fun and educational way for visitors to learn about Irish history, culture and people.

Described as one of Ireland’s National Treasures, EPIC was named “Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction” in the 2019 World Travel Awards and it has just been announced that it’s been nominated for the same award again this year.
