This little gem of a place ahs everything you thought Dublin would be like--from great little brick-a-brack shops to really high end fashion places that you would normally see on Bond Street.

Cute arcade with gift shops, art, kitch, fortune tellers, vintage clothing,food etc. Lovely find near Powerscourt Town House/Grafton Street area. not big but worth a wander. Grogans pub near by also good for refreshments.

We were after a picture of a particular thing: a Celtic cross. We did not find it. The place is handsome outside, but many of the shops inside are narrow, with the poor staff crushed into narrow cublicles. Colourful, but it had nothing I was interested in. (I'm a guy, we're crap at shopping.)

Finally found this place and was very disappointed. There were several different stalls, some a bit interesting but many were just junk, like from China. Would not wast my time again. I guess I was expecting more unique stalls from the red brick Victorian facade.

It's a pretty small arcade selling everything from retro clothing to meat & potato pies. A good place to come for something quirky & it backs onto The Market Bar as well.

This is Dublin's answer to Camden Market. It's in a beautiful red-bricked Victorian arcade but it's rather small. It's well worth a visit,

There are lots of stalls here, some great shops such as coin dealers, antique bookseller, glassware crafts, vintage clothes and a number of food stalls and coffee shops. There are some stalls with junk, but mostly good places and often go here for interesting gifts or with visitors who enjoy the quirkiness and a coffee. Completely different from the British... More

Located in the city centre (5 mins from Temple Bar), the Arcade offers a wide range for alternative shoppers: flea market, junk, clothing, jewelry and food. If you are into 50ies/60ies Clothing you've got to visit the Retro Shop. A very small shop crowded with very fair priced women's Clothing. They also ship internationally and a website. Another gem is... More

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
