Disappointed that so many stalls\shops were empty\ closed on a Thursday in August. The arty creative stuff was great, the most we saw in one place in Dublin, would have been awesome if complete. Some stalls were just ordinary, but it wasd an interesting walk tyjhrough on the way to Powers court.

Really enjoyed walking around this little arcade. Lots of stalls selling everything from tee shirts and vinyl through to art and some food stands. Well worth a wander.

I was very happy to find this market since I collect prints (photos, paintings, etc.) from each city I visit. This was the only place I saw, even among street vendors, that had something like that. There was only one artist, at the very beginning, but he had a good selection of water colors, canvases, prints, and photos of different... More

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
