Dublin Docklands is an area of the city of Dublin, Ireland, on both sides of the River Liffey, roughly from Talbot Memorial Bridge eastwards to the 3Arena.
The Docklands has over recent years been regenerated as an extension of the modern business hub of Dublin's International Financial Services Centre. By 2008 the area had over 600 enterprises with new companies moving in every month, however this slowed down considerably due to the Irish financial crisis. Values and development activity has since 2014 made a significant recovery. The urban regeneration has transformed the Docklands into an innovative built environment and a uniquely modern area in which to do business.
New infrastructure, such as the Samuel Beckett Bridge and the LUAS Docklands extension, has made the area more accessible. New venues, including the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, the refurbished 3Arena and the Convention Centre Dublin have all become modern Dublin landmarks. Despite the scaling down of projects due to the economic recession, in tandem with the presence of national and international leaders in the finance, legal, and particularly digital and communications sectors, the Docklands has become a vibrant working and living district in the city of Dublin.
Thirteen new Dublin Bikes stations were opened in the Docklands in 2013-2014, at Custom House Quay, City Quay, Excise Walk, Lime Street, Guild Street, Convention Centre, New Central Bank, The Point, Benson Street, Hanover Quay, Grand Canal Dock, Barrow Street, and South Dock Road.
