South Studios, located close to Dublin's city centre, is a mid 19th century building that used to be a former brewery and tannery. It now operates as a rental space for film, photography and events. It is also a permanent base for a variety of freelance creatives.


The River Poddle courses beneath its floorboards and with original features throughout the building, it offers an atmosphere like no other studio space in Dublin. We are proud to have hosted a variety of high-profile events and photo shoots, been locations in recent feature films The Stag and The Food Guide To Love, as well as the studio location for The Works and Off The Rails.


With four large, beautiful studios, South Studios offers the scope and infrastructure that allows you to create individual, unique work. Clients are free to interpret and dress the space as they please, and the volume of interesting work that has been produced in South Studios has been testament to the versatility of the space.
