Dublin is mostly known for its tourist attractions and pubs, but less known as a shopping destination. However, Dublin has lots of amazing versatile department stores, boutiques and markets to offer for a perfect day of shopping. We picked out the best places to buy your new outfit or other goodies.
Powerscourt Townhouse Centre
Powerscourt Townhouse centre is centrally located next to Grafton Street and the perfect place for boutique shopping. The building is a Georgian townhouse that once belonged to the Powerscourt family. The shopping centre also offers some very nice food spots, which is perfect when you need a break from all that shopping.
George’s Street Arcade
George’s Street Arcade opened its doors in 1881 as the South City markets and nowadays there can be found some great boutique and vintage shops. The building is extraordinary, a Victorian style red-bricked indoor market of stalls and stores.
Ireland’s oldest and largest department store is Arnotts, located on Henry Street since 1843. It features over 700 international brands and 100 Irish craft brands, spread over seven luxurious floors.
If you’re in for some luxury shopping, Brown Thomas is the place to be. The department store is already located in Dublin since 1849 and has been an important part of the Irish retail since then. Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Cartier are only a few on the brand sold at Brown Thomas, so this store really is de crème de la crème.
🍂 Brown Thomas & Company Limited is a chain of four Irish department stores, located in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Limerick. Owned by Wittington Investments, Brown Thomas is an upmarket chain, akin to Canada's Holt Renfrew chain, Britain's Selfridges stores and De Bijenkorf in the Netherlands, all of whom controlled by the Weston Family. 🍂 . . .
