Irish neighbourhood named one of the 'coolest' in the world

What can we say, we're a cool bunch.

As Dublin is currently undergoing both a rent crisis and homeless crisis, our 'cool' factor seems to be the only thing improving for the better.

The country's capital has been included in Time Out's 50 Coolest Neighbourhoods in the World.

The neighbourhood of Phibsborough has been named as one area alongside 49 others, that are the 'coolest' in the world.

The profile of the Northside neighbourhood reads "Since a new tram line arrived last December, the outlying village of Phibsboro (also spelled Phibsborough) has become more bustling than ever.

"Dilapidated Victorian buildings are suddenly filling with modern cafés and charming shops. Like nearby hipster hub Stoneybatter before it, the additional infrastructure signals that a revival is on the horizon, with former residents like the writer James Joyce adding to the neighbourhood’s allure, and arts and community organisation Phizzfest hosting regular theatre, literature, comedy, music and film events and discussions throughout the year," it added.

Regarding things to do in the area, café Two Boys Brew were named as the best place to eat.

The best pub in Phibsborough was recommended as the Back Page and spots such as the Royal Canal and the Blessington Basin were added as the must-see parts of the area.
