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.

We searched the city for a small souvenir print of a Dublin landmark and finally found it here. The arcade isn't large, but the building itself is worth a visit, (make sure you look up while inside and outside the north entrance) and it has a fun quirky vibe to it, even if you don't buy anything.

It's a really small and crowded indoor market. I didn't find a lot to look at other than the book store. The bookstore was pretty cool and had many old books. Other than that not very interesting.

George's Street Arcade shops offer everything from old vinyl albums, vintage clothes, food, books, antiques and much more! If you're into these types of things, this should definitely be on your "to do" list.

Walked through here one afternoon when walking around Dublin. There are several quirky shops, nothing extravagant or great in my humble opinion, with one exception that is --- My favorite was an old bookstore - had so many cool, old books. Definitely made this small detour worth it for me.

I loved this little place. My teen wasn't so sure at first because it can feel a bit cramped to move around when it's busy. But there is so much to see! There are so many little shops and stalls with all sorts of goods that you would often have to look online for. You can spend all day just... More

A good place to kill some time browsing, full of bespoke shops and stands, ranging from cakes stalls, flowers and jewellery to tarot readings

I bought a dress in here just before Christmas. The sales assistant was all over me, this is BEAUTIFUL on you, really suits you, you couldn't look better! I fell for it somehow, despite the fact that I clearly looked like a red sausage which had been tied tightly in various places..aaghh! I brought the dress back the next day... More

If you're killing time in Dublin, make sure to stop here. The vintage items can be a hit or miss but it's still a nice place to get out of the weather. Easy to find even if your gps poops out. Warning, no public restrooms!

George Street Arcade is located in the heart of Dublin city centre. It is close to Grafton Street and has a variety of shops and stalls selling food, clothing, jewellery, collectable items and souvenirs. There is something appealing about this place (the façade and the history) but in terms of shopping, we didn't find anything that we need and some... More

If you are in Dublin you just have to see this old market-hall. With it's vintage flair but all the new fancy shops in there, as well as just interesting one you'd find nowhere else in town, just wanna see it at least once.
