Places to go
Dublin’s core shopping areas are Grafton St and Henry St, where you can find international retailers & department stores, such as Brown Thomas and Arnotts, who offer top brands across a number of product areas. However the real gems can be found on the surrounding streets; Powerscourt Town Centre, just off Grafton St, showcases a number of Irish and international brands and offers a wide variety of product & art across their stores.
Following on from here you hit Drury St, which is home to the amazing George’s St Arcade and one of Dublin’s oldest vintage stores, Jenny Vander. Also in this area you must visit Wicklow St which offers a great variety of stores across ladies, men’s & kids apparel, footwear and beauty. Another area that needs a mention is Temple Bar; although known as a tourist trap for bars & restaurants, there’s no denying that this is still a key area for fashion & home to some of Dublin’s best vintage & second hand stores. In Temple Bar you will find Ireland’s first ever Urban Outfitters store & Matrix favourite, Folkster.
