It's a fantastic little shopping arcade in the heart of the city. It's a great change to the dull and boring Henry Street and Grafton Street. If your interested in Vintage/Retro clothes and music (vinyl) this place is for you. Tahiti (I think that's how you spell it), Retro and Oh Look! are brilliant little clothes shops, and for jewellery... More

Arcade is a very small flea market right in the heart of Dublin. It's a nice place for tourists looking for something different. Even though the place is considerably small, you still can have a good variety of stands selling all sorts of antique and modern stuff. You can even have a bit to eat there or a cup of... More

I was expecting a bit more to be honest. We turned up at 11 in the morning and half the shops were shut which was a shame. Im sure they would have been interesting but who knows ! Pop in if your passing but dont lie awake worrying if you don't

It's not something to go out of your way for, but if you are going from the north side and want to go to Grafton street, it's a nice little detour to pass by. Lots of good places to eat in the area, and within the market lots of great little shops - including boba tea and froyo. Stalls are... More

I tend to write about the good places rather then the one I did not like- well one that deserves a mention is this palce. There is so much to see, actually buy and lots of People to meet and talk to. And the Cafe is one of the best places to get a nice and good value dinner in... More

We walked in a 1130 am and the sign said open at noon on Sunday. Came back at 2 pm. Total waste of time as 2/3 of the vendors couldn't be bothered to show up ! .... Might be ok the rest of the week , but don't waste your time on Sunday!!

One of the best little cafe's in Dublin, Simons Place is nestled at the corner of the arcade, its walls are lined with old and new gig posters so if you want to know whats happening in Dublin's venues here is a unique way to find out! They also do a killer cinnamon bun :) My girlfriend got some nice... More

There was a book shop, but other than that it was mostly cheap crap. The space was nice, and it's worth a walk through, but don't go imagining you're going to find some undiscovered delight.

I love markets and visit here often. Great stall selling old postcards. Some stalls of Chinese junk but a great book stall and shop with some rare books. A good stall for piercing enthusiasts and a new stall with Italian food and also a great shop with an acre of ethnic jewellery (pricey)
