Such wonderful shopping here. And it's all authentic and local! You can spend a lot or little, there is so much to choose from. Do not go to any other "tourist" shop...this is the one to visit!

Misplaced order emailed and called numerous times with no response. Definitely won't not recommend for anyone to use online "service" or lack of service..

Nice shop that has currently lots of lovely Christmassy bits in! Not badly priced if a little on the expensive side. Couldn't buy much as only had hand luggage. Cafe upstairs was buzzing with a live band on a Sunday afternoon. All things Irish from sweet treats to jewelry and glassware. Some good artists work in there too. Would return... More

The shop is the real McCoy with all genuine Irish designs and great food upstairs in the cafe & restaurant. Had a birthday lunch which was simply superb with genuine Irish customer service. This shop deserves its various awards for great cuisine and merchandising and would recommend it to anybody.

I like the place for a good Irish breakfast and the breakfast is excellent, good quality and reasonable prices. If you fancy putting your feet up then the restaurant is the place to go. The seating is not the best but then the space is limited. I would receommend it for breakfast, lunch or just teae or coffee. It is... More

Our third visit over the past eight years and each time we have found good stuff, the quality being consistent, and the prices fair.... and the service quite friendly and... More

I met family for tea & cake in this fabulous shop & cafe whilst on a trip to Dublin. The atmosphere was lovely and the cafe was very clean. We weren't rushed and there was plenty of room so you didn't feel you were almost sitting on top of the next table. The scones were delicious! I loved the shop... More
