Directions and useful stuff
So, how do you get here.
You have a few options – walking, bicycle, LUAS (Smithfield stop), Driving.
Let’s start with the green ways.
From manor street – You want to make your way to Brunswick Street. Walk down manor street towards the liffy and stay on the left hand side. When you come to a centra on the corner with Walshes pub on the opposite corner, you want to take a left between pub and Centra. Keep on the left hand side. Keep walking past some apartments until you cross a cobble stone road. In front of you, you will see a two story stone cut building called the old woolen mill. Keep going with the building along on your left and walk into the archway through the 12 foot high black metal gates.
From the Liffy – reverse the instructions above and walk past Walshes pub and turn right into Brunswick street.
From the LUAS (red line)- Get off at the Smithfield stop and walk into Smithfield square. Keep walking to the top of the square towards North King Street. At the top of the square you will see The cobblestones pub (nice pub by the way). Walk along side the pub on the cobble stone road. At the T-junction at the top, go left. Keep walking until you see some traffic lights, stay on the same road but cross over towards Pepe’s cafe (large neon sign saying “Italian Cafe”), pass a garage workshop and arrive at the 12 foot high metal gates.
There are bike lanes around most of the route to the studio. There is also a Dublinbikes sharing point at Smithfield LUAS stop. The elbowroom has secure bike locks outside of the studio for you to use. However, as we do live in Dublin, please always double lock your bike. Once D-type and one chain is a good tip as the pesky theives normally carry one type of lock busting tool.
Driving – If you are driving please look at the following route map and parking map. Brunswick Street is one way. You need to enter Brunswick Street from Manor Street, either driving down Manor Street and turning left at the centra into Brunswick street or, crossing the Liffy at the James Joyce bridge or driving up past the law society and turning right into Brunswick street between Walshes and Centra.
Parking – Please do not park in the studio car park as this is for staff and the other businesses who operate from the complex. Paid parking is available around in the area (see the map).
