Spending the day in Dublin we were shopping in Grafton Street when the downpour of rain began so we were hoping for some undercover shopping! Having been to Brown Thomas in Grafton Street and out of the winter rain, we needed some shelter and some coffee. We discovered Powerscourt Townhouse Centre just hidden down a little alleyway from Grafton Street... More

What a lovely mix of antique,speciality shops, and eating places nestled in a fabulous setting. Just walking around soaking up the ambience was relaxing and a nice diversion from the hustle... More

Went here specifically to see the knitting shop. Found a lovely sewing accessory shop as well as clothing shops, a tea room and local artistic flavor. Well worth seeking out!

Very impressive and in the heart of the city. Do not walk past it because you think it's too exclusive or expensive as it holds a total mix of shops, lovely cafes and is just lovely to stroll round. Absolutely beautiful place/space.

Not far from the bustle of Dublin are the massive gardens and landscaped grounds of Powerscourt. You will feel as if you have already reached the Irish countryside. A true step back into history, but also a welcome respite and refreshing afternoon or morning of beauty.

This has to be one of the most stylish and unique shopping centres in Europe. Set in a large elegant Georgian house it exudes class and style coupled with bespoke interior design. It is a sheer delight to sit upstairs drinking coffee served by friendly staff and just observe all the wondrous goings-on around you. The atmosphere within the building... More

Don't just visit this for the shopping. Its a stunning building, and much is intact. There are history boards explaining who owned it and when. Then you can get back to your shopping spree

We had a nice lunch at Pepperpot. There are lots of shops, but we only had time for a little window shopping. The decor is very lively and festive, and it was interesting to imagine what it looked like back when it was an estate home.
