Meet the neighbours

  • Pallas Projects/Studio
  • Teeling Distillery
    • Pallas Projects/Studio

      Founded in 1995, Pallas Projects/Studios is an artist-run not-for-profit, dedicated to facilitating artistic production, and the discourse that surrounds it, providing affordable artist studios and supporting curated projects. The organisation collaborates with artists, curators and writers to develop new contemporary Irish art. Having been based at locations across Dublin’s city centre, the Studios can now be found in their new home at The Coombe, where the open space exists to expose as wide and diverse an audience as possible to new art. We spoke to Gavin Murphy to learn more.

    • Q: Tell us a little bit about Pallas Projects, and how 
you started?
      A: Our organisation has been running since 1996, originally to provide studios for artists. It started in a knitwear factory in the Monto area of Dublin, and since then we have moved around Dublin as interesting, unused spaces become available.

      Q: What drew you to this part of Dublin?
      A: When we moved here 10 years ago, it was rough and ready, with spaces we could make our own. The community has gradually attracted some great cafés, shops and even an architecture practice—it’s made it a lot more convivial. It’s a vibrant area of the city with a rich history to tap into. For example, the Poddle River that runs underground has fed into several creative projects There are some great local community arts groups and associations that we’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with.

    • Q: What makes it unique?
      A: The area still retains a lot of its old character; it’s one of the most-named areas of the city, the Black Pit, Tenters, Liberties, the Coombe… There are still the small, red-bricked houses, cobbled streets and old factory buildings here, but now side by side with some of the newer developments.

      Q: Are there any other businesses that you admire here?
      A: The Fumbally and Two Pups café are brilliant and really capture the spirit of the area; they’re authentic establishments. That’s what’s been special about Dublin 8 from the start: it’s home to really unique businesses, not chains.

      Q: Would you recommend the area?
      A: I used to live just around the corner and am still very involved in the area. I would absolutely recommend people move there. It’s still got a great mix of the old and new, which is essential in any community and hopefully it will retain its enriched sense of culture.

    • Teeling Distillery

      Established in 2015 in the Liberties, Teeling was the first new distillery to open in Dublin in 125 years. Part of a new generation of distillers, Teeling takes traditional distilling methods and injects new innovative practises to craft whiskeys that are complex and full of flavour. We talked to Brand Ambassador, James Kilgannon.
    • Q: What drew you to this part of Dublin?
      A: The Liberties are Dublin’s old centre of whiskey distilling. In the 18th and 19th centuries, they produced about 50–60% of the world’s whiskey, and ancestors of the current Teeling family had a distillery there. We chose to open our distillery in the heart of Dublin City in order to revive the tradition of distillery in the Liberties.

      Q: What excites you about the area; what makes it unique?
      A: We love the Liberties—it’s steeped in tradition. It’s got a really vibrant community with arts projects sitting alongside fishmongers and greengrocers. And there’s an artistic crowd, with independent cafés everywhere, which co-exists with the original Liberties’ community.

      Q: What kind of businesses would you like to see move to the area?
      A: I’d like to see businesses with a community spirit and sustainable practises. Businesses that really add something to the area and want to see more green spaces. That kind of thing.

    • Q: What kind of businesses would you like to see move to the area?
      A: I’d like to see businesses with a community spirit and sustainable practises. Businesses that really add something to the area and want to see more green spaces. That kind of thing.

      Q: Do you live in the area?
      A: I do. I’m originally from Galway but I’ve lived here for three years. It’s like a rural town in the centre of Dublin. There are a lot of characters and personalities throughout the Liberties that make a tight-knit community that is extremely welcoming.
