Ringsend is an inner suburb of Dublin located on the south bank of the River Liffey, about two kilometres east of the city centre. It used to be the docking point for ships coming across the Irish Sea and there is still some local container shipping today. Ringsend and the southern part of Dublin Port are home to the Great South Wall, connecting the Poolbeg Lighthouse to the mainland. Constructed in 1767 the lighthouse is a popular walking destination. The area around Poolbeg also contains Dublin's main power station, with two huge chimneys for steam, which are Dublin landmarks.
Ringsend is now a popular location for students and younger workers with significant growth in the area due to the Grand Canal Dock Project. The area has a range of shops, pubs, flats and businesses. Local residents include actor Colin Farrell and poet Paul Durcan.
