Talbot Mall (formerly known as Irish Life Shopping Mall prior its 2013 rebranding) is a small shopping centre located between Talbot Street and Abbey Street in Dublin, Ireland. It is part of a complex which are the Irish Life buildings on Abbey Street, and other office facilities. The car park is accessible from Abbey street and exits on Gardner Street.

Café Brasilia and Keith Prowse Travel are in the centre, other tenants of the shopping centre have included L'Avenue Hair & Beauty, Iceland, Easons, Sasha and Hugh O'Regan's Life Bar (which for a time opened as Floridita), although most of them are no longer resident in the centre.

Comreg, the Irish governments Communications Regulator is based in the Complex.

Irish Life are the original developers and current part-owners of the Ilac Centre on Henry Street which was built a number of years after Talbot Mall.

In April 2013, the centre was rebranded the Talbot Mall after being named Irish Life Mall since its opening.[1]
