Smithfield is the largest purpose-built open civic space in Europe. The dramatic gas braziers light up the square on Saturday evenings and on other important occasions. The long-running horse-fair dominates the square on the first Sunday of every month, and you can watch the action from the 55m high Jameson Chimney, crowned by a two-tier glass observation platform. Popular venues include Park Inn Dublin, the Kelly and Ping restaurant, along with several other craft shops.
