Smithfield, Dublin 8
Originally mid-17th century marketplace

Smithfield was laid out in the mid-17th century as a marketplace and it is now home to the Dublin City Fruit, Vegetable and Flower Market.

In 1964 Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor spent time here, as Burton worked on the film set in Smithfield for the film adaptation of John le Carre’s novel “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold”. Smithfield “played a role” of Checkpoint Charlie in the movie.

Notable landmarks include the Old Jameson Whiskey Distillery and the Observation Tower.
