Monto was the nickname for the one-time red light district in Dublin, the capital of Ireland. Monto was roughly the area bounded by Talbot Street, Amiens Street, Gardiner Street and Seán McDermott Street (formerly Gloucester Street). The name is derived from Montgomery Street (now called Foley Street), which runs parallel to the lower end of Talbot Street towards what is now Connolly Station. It was immortalised as Nighttown in the Circe chapter of James Joyces famous work, Ulysses, where the central protagonists Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus together visit a brothel.
