This place has that genuine authentic Irish feel to it. They have beautiful Irish pottery and fashion designed and made in Ireland. I like to buy one thing on every visit to a new country and so I have a wonderful big coffee mug from this shop that I treasure.

This is a great place for a large variety of Irish Crystal, dishes, linens and jewelry. They had some good sale items. I bought a beautiful Galway Crystal Cross, at nearly half the price that it was online. The staff was helpful and pleasant. It also has a nice restaurant on the second floor.

This is definitely the place to go for quality irish gifts. They have everything from quality irish crystal to pottery, jewerly, and even linens. It can be a bit pricey but if you are looking for gifts beyong the cliched leprechauns and shamrocks then this is the place. The staff are very friendly and helpful and attentive. My favorite thing... More

I met my mother, a tour guide, for lunch in Kilkenny Restaurant. I was staggered not only by the hospitality of the staff, one particular staff member, Colin, deserves a mention for his kindness, but also by the food which was delicious and different. I was pleasantly surprised to discover it's student friendly environment. Not only are the prices acceptable... More

Some delightful items to see but with a price to match, great for that unusual gift to take home. Dublin bus tours ticket gives you 5 euros discount

Shopped here (but didn't eat in the cafe) on a recent business trip. They have a little bit of everything from around Ireland. Some of which I saw in other places and some was a little bit more unique. The great thing is that they ship overseas and sometimes they have great promotions on free shipping if you spend over...

We found this store on our last shopping day in Dublin. I wish we had found it sooner. It's right across the street from Trinity College. It's the perfect location. It has an amazing collection of pottery from all over Ireland, and many other products. I really wanted to buy some pieces of pottery from the Nicholas Mosse collection, but... More

On a recent long weekend in Dublin, we were attracted to the Kilkenny shop by the bright and lively window display.The goods on sale were high-end (mostly) and expensive (all!) Irish items. But the main attraction was the first-floor cafe, with its wide variety of light meals. We ate there twice during our four day visit. Prices were very reasonable... More
