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

Went for Jazz Brunch today. Wow! Fruit, full breakfast, juice, coffee, toast, and Prosecco. Great quality, great value (€9.95). Nice soft jazz band.

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

This was the cheapest breakfast we ate in dublin on our visit. The self service cafeteria arrangement removes any atmosphere and staff interaction but we were there for food so that was fine for our requirements.

Had breakfast here 3 mornings. Really interesting shop selling expensive but designer type Irish goods on the ground floor. We had read about the quality of the food so that was the reason for our visit/s . I opted for the 6 euro Full Irish which had bacon, sausage, vine cherry tomatoes, scrambled egg and mushroom + 2 slices of... More
