Dorset Street is a thoroughfare on the northside of Dublin's inner city. The street runs north east from Abbey Street and Bolton Street at Dominick Street junction, north of Parnell Square and Mountjoy Square and leads into Drumcondra Road at Binn's Bridge on the Royal Canal. It makes up part of the most common route from Dublin Airport to the city centre and the N1 National Primary Route follows Dorset Street for part of its route. It meets the N2 route at the junctions with Blessington Street and St Mary's Place. Other major roads feeding onto this spine street include North Circular Road, Gardiner Street, Eccles Street, North Frederick Street and Granby Row. There are numerous pubs, restaurants and shops on Dorset Street, as well as hotels and bus stops. Its access points mean it is in close proximity to both Dublin City Centre, the M1, M50 and Dublin Airport.
