Dublin One, the area from O’Connell St to Capel St and Parnell St to the Quays, is the second district in the city to be awarded the prestigious Purple Flag award. Purple Flag is the ‘gold standard’ for town and city centres in the early evening and at night from 5pm to 5am.
This is the second such accreditation for the city with the Creative Quarter and Dame District holding this accolade since 2013. The flag is awarded by the London based Association of Town and City Management (ATCM).
Purple Flag accreditation means the area has been recognised as an ‘area of excellence, especially in the evening economy’ – making it the ideal place to explore possibilities.
It’s kind of like the Blue Flag for beaches and the Green Flag for schools – but the purple means it’s an area recognised as a place to go ‘for a better night out’ – and we do love a good night out! The area offers the highest quality in shopping, dining, pubs and entertainment, ensuring that we have all we need for a great evening out in Dublin, sure we always knew it!
So if you’re looking for something to do, make a plan to visit the Purple Flag Area and discover the possibilities that DublinTown has to offer.
