Abbey Street Lower is a high footfall location with pedestrians traversing the street from the IFSC and the Quays towards the Henry Street shopping district via Abbey Street Lower and O’Connell Street. The area is regenerating quickly as new retailers including cult brand Boojum and Café Nero join well-established brands O’Brien’s Sandwich Bar, Euro 2 and Centra.

The area is well served by public transport links. The LUAS Red line stops adjacent the unit bringing passengers directly from the thriving Docklands technology and financial district in approximately 6 minutes; and Connolly Station in 2 minutes. The area is expected to receive a further boost in footfall and regeneration with the completion of the LUAS Cross City Project which will see the Green line extend and interchange with the red line making the Abbey Street LUAS stop a focal point on the network for passengers switching lines.

The area is also well served by car parking with several multi-storey car parking facilities in the area including Arnotts, the Jervis Centre and the Ilac Shopping Centre. The nearest is only a one minute walk in the Irish Life Centre. Numerous bus termini are located on Abbey Street Lower serving the surrounding suburbs.

Further regeneration in the area includes a new 158 bedroom boutique hotel on the corner of Malborough Street and Sackville Place, by the owners of the 5 Star Marker Hotel in Dublin’s Docklands, a Wetherspoon Gastro pub and an €8 million upgrade of the Irish Life Centre’s public spaces.
