Dublin street named one of the top 30 ‘coolest streets in the world’

Stephen Porzio

It’s a great selection.

Camden Street in Dublin city has made a new list ranking the top 30 ‘coolest streets in the world’.

The list was published by Time Out magazine, who reached out to its global team of local expert editors and contributors – with each of whom then making a case for the coolest street in their city.

The selection was then narrowed down to create a “definitive ranking of the best avenues, thoroughfares, backstreets and boulevards on the planet”.

Camden Street placed 22nd in the list, with Time Out highlighting how it is just a 10-minute stroll from “the city’s tourist-packed centre” and how it has retained a “no-frills, post-modern grit, despite becoming a hotspot for creative spaces”.

“Camden Street is characterised by unpretentious pubs, political street art and a buzzy dining scene,” the outlet added.

“It’s full of surprises, from Ireland’s best Taco Truck Los Chicanos to the secret Cake Café, accessible only by way of high-ceilinged, secondhand bookseller The Last Bookshop.”

Other Camden Street pubs, restaurants and venues singled out for praise include Anseo, the Bleeding Horse, Bunsen, Cassidy’s, Delahunt, Devitt’s, Frank’s, Hang Dai, Meet Me In The Morning, Mister S, Pickle and Yogahub.

JOE would reiterate Time Out’s claims about the Dublin area, though we may be biased given we are based in that neck of the woods.

Meanwhile, the outlet’s top five coolest streets in the world were as follows:

  1. High Street, Melbourne
  2. Hollywood Road, Hong Kong
  3. East Eleventh, Austin
  4. Guatemala Street, Buenos Aires
  5. Commercial Drive, Vancouver
