D is for Designist. With their home at 68 South Great George’s Street, your next plan could be as follows.

Then admire said purchases over dinner and cocktails at Brasserie Sixty6, just next door.

E is for Eggs Benedict. If pancakes aren’t your thing for brunch, then you have to try Brasserie Sixty6’s Egg’s Benedict and Eggs Florentine. Eggcellent choices by far.

F is for Fade Street. Only a short stroll across the road from Brasserie Sixty6 and you’ll find yourself on wonderful Fade Street, and the Creative Quarter of Dublin.

G is for The George. Did you know that The George is Dublin’s longest running Gay Bar in Dublin? It’s over 30 years old! If you haven’t witnessed a show, bingo or even a night out at The George, you haven’t really lived in Dublin.

H is for The Long Hall. The Long Hall is in it for the long hall! It’s one of Dublin’s oldest pubs. Licensed since 1776, with renovations carried out in 1881, it has remained true to its history. It’s Victorian, it’s original, it’s gorgeous to sit in and admire, and it serves a great pint.

I is for Irish. Brasserie Sixty6 prides itself on the quality of locally sourced Irish produce it uses throughout all its restaurant menus.

J is for Frederick Jermyn. Mr. Jermyn is the architect responsible for what was once the National Bank at 64 South Great George’s Street. It’s now home to Soder and Ko. This is the next door neighbour of Sixty6 serving food and drinks of a Scandinavian and Asian fusion.

K is for Kiddie Friendly. Brasserie Sixty6 is child and family friendly with ample space for prams and highchairs at the ready. Leaving you no excuse not to dine out.

L is for Lying-in Hospital. Dr. Bartholomew Moses’s Lying-in Hospital was the first of its kind here in Ireland. It was based on South George’s Street opposite Fade Street. Later it moved to where the Rotunda is now.

M is for Mexican. Our lovely street is host to 2 residents that can assist you with your Mexican fix. Get your margarita on or indulge in the fajitas. You will get your salsa in 777 or Acapulco!

N is for Neon. When you think of South Great George’s Street there’s a neon sign that should spring to mind, or your head! The “Why Go Bald” sign was one of Dublin’s first neon signs. It’s now a city landmark. Erected by Sydney Goldsmith of the Universal Hair & Scalp Clinic and Taylor Signs in 1961, restored in 1999 and loved forever more. You’ll find it at No. 3 South Great George’s Street.

O is for Oxfam. Powering people against poverty, Oxfam on South Great George’s Street offers its customers designer clobber at competitive prices. Their wedding boutique upstairs has been a hit with many a bride searching for that perfect dress. Plus it’s all in the name of charity, so what’s not to love.

P is for Pim’s Department Store. Built by the Pim Brothers, Pim’s was one of the largest Department Stores of its type in Dublin City at its time of construction in the 1850’s. It was home at 75-82 South Great George Street. It closed its doors in the 1960’s and was demolished in the 1970’s.

Q is for Quirky. Now you couldn’t talk about South Great George’s Street and not mention ‘Simon’s PlaceCafé, a quirky coffee shop with a musical history (just check out those walls) and the perfect place to watch the world go by, coffee and cake in hand.

R is for Rotisserie. Did you know that Brasserie Sixty6 is one of the few top restaurants in Dublin and Ireland that cooks meats in a rotisserie oven? Chicken, duck, lamb, beef and pig! Delicious.

S is for South. South City Markets (today known as George’s Street Arcade) opened in 1881 and took up a full block on South Great George’s Street. After a devastating fire it was rebuilt and reopened in 1892 as the building we all know and love today.

T is for Bewley’s Tea (and Coffee). Founded in 1840, Bewley’s is Ireland’s leading Coffee and Tea Company. Everyone knows of the Bewley’s oriental café on Grafton Street but did you know that another of its first three oriental cafés was located at No. 13 South Great George’s Street! Nowadays you’ll be able to test the Bewley’s tea and coffee making skills on South Great George’s Street at No. 3.

U is for Uncooked. Do you know the difference between sushi and sashimi? Sushi means slices of raw fish wrapped in or laid over sushi rice. Sashimi is simply the raw fish. Taste of Rustic by Dylan McGrath on South George’s Street will help understand, they specialise in both or perhaps another long resident of Georges Street, Yamamori.

V is for Victorian intervention. Think of the George’s Street Arcade with its Victorian Gothic aesthetics and the aforementioned Long Hall bar with its original Victorian interior.

W is for Waltons Music Shop. Did you know that Waltons Music Shop was founded in the 1920’s? Or that their South Great George’s Street store features in the Oscar-winning Irish film ‘Once’? You do now.

X is for Exchequer Street. Okay I cheated with this one a little but Exchequer Street highly deserves a mention when talking about South Great George’s Street. Named after the Royal Exchequer, which was based there in the middle ages, this street is also a hive of activity for food, drink and fashion.

Y is for Yuletide. Otherwise known as Christmas, Christmas at Brasserie Sixty6 means celebration time and the restaurant loves this time of year so much they even have a Christmas Party Club!
