This is an ever-growing collection of Dublin’s old and fading signs. These signs provide a window into Dublin’s past – its shops, businesses and advertising.

Ghost signs are the old and typically hand-painted signs of advertising and businesses that have closed their doors for the final time.  In Dublin, these signs are everywhere – on walls, above buildings and on tiled mosaic doorsteps. Next time you are out on the streets, just “Look Up” – you never know what you will find!
