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.

Only a few outlets remain operational, a cafe, and one retail and one service unit. Past 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).

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]

With the closure of Brasilia Café in August 2019, the only remaining internal unit is now O’Briens Sandwich Bar.
