Off The Beaten Track: Tivoli Theatre Car Park in Dublin

Tucked inside Francis St, a side street of the gritty Thomas St, is an oasis of colour, the Tivoli Theatre Car Park, Dublin’s own “5 Pointz.” As someone who walks down Thomas St everyday to get to work, it took me five months before I took the time to check this place out.

I read about the car park in Secret Dublin a few months ago and penciled it onto my to-do list. All I had to do was make a right turn while on my way home one day to see this marvellous site. But right turns can be tricky, eh?

I blame the rain.

Anyway, there was one conspicuously sunny day last week, and I thought there was no way I’m heading home right now. I thought of lounging in a park somewhere when I crossed Francis St. That’s when I had a bright idea.

So I made a right turn.

Enough with the suspense. This is what lies within…
