Music Venue
“The 3Arena is an indoor amphitheatre located at North Wall Quay in the Dublin Docklands in Dublin, Ireland. The venue opened as The O₂ on 16 December 2008. It was built on the site of the former Point Theatre, a smaller music venue which operated from 1988 to 2007, retaining only some of the outer facade.”

Italian Restaurant

“The most authentic Italian food in a family run restaurant My parents are from Casalattico, Italy (between Rome and Naples). They emigrated to Dublin in 1956 and in 1960 purchased 148 North Strand Road, for the princely sum of 4000 Irish pounds. My parents ran a Fish & Chip shop at the premises like many Italians in Dublin at the time. They ran a successful business there until 1975 and they leased it to another Italian family. I took over the premises in 2010 and wanted to open a ‘Sapori D Italia’ so Da Mimmo was born! We serve fresh home made Italian food daily from 10:30 – 11:00 pm Our specials board changes daily. Our 2 course lunch 8.50 euro is very popular. Da Mimmo was nominated for the Lovin’ Dublin ‘Best Restaurant’ catagory in November 2014. In December 2014 we celebrated 4 years in business. We are proud of our family food tradition at North Strand. We hope future generations of our family will be here serving you in years to come. See you in Da Mimmo soon!”

Sushi Restaurant

“Our sushi is made fresh by order and never leftover from the previous Hour. Not all sushi shops are as dedicated to freshness as we are at Musashi Sushi. The only thing better than fresh, mouthwatering, delicious sushi, is paying less for it! ”
