Quaint little market place with a collection of all sorts of shops and stands. A leisurely stroll allows you to take in all of the crafts.

The building and the location are great. I’m not a big fan of the bunch of cheap shops that are on the inside. Overall I would not return.

Located in the heart of Dublin, this shopping centre is nice for a visit, built in the victorian era, it has an old world charm, nice to walk along the market type stalls.

Come here for a variety of vendors and products! We found some fun rings at a shop, and there is a wide range of products at other shops to select from. We also appreciated the break from the wind and the cold.

Quick, productive shopping stop!

Whilst visiting Georges arcade recently took a look around the stalls and store. When we came across "Heads up" we asked the owner what's the best price he could do on an item.

He proceeded to swear at us, and went on a rant about how he didn't do any trade since 2020. How he didn't make a profit.

Firstly we made a reasonable enquiry. As a Dubliner does when visiting the market stalls. Secondly you usually shouldn't verbally assault your customers who want to give you their money.

But also as healthcare workers (A Carer & Nurse). And everything we have been through with Covid on the frontline services. To get this rant over a fiver was ridiculous. Needless to say we didn't bother with the store.

We took over business and trade to Kennedy and mcsharry at powers court shopping centre. Maybe you can buy class after all! lol

Also no social distancing, mask wearing happening. xoxo

Took a trip to George’s street arcade to pick up a book at stokes bookshop. A nice little shop which has a great variety of different books. Service is personal & friendly and it’s always nice to support local business as opposed to the big chains. Be aware they close at 6pm. However my issue is not with stokes bookshop, it’s with George street arcade, with no real social distance being observed. A lot of shops staff wearing masks others not. It really is a small area but with Covid, somebody should be keeping an eye on the large crowds that pass through and having a traffic light system in place. I would of bought other things, but felt it was safer to get out ASAP. Please sort this out.

Decided to walk to George Street Arcade to check it out but was quite underwhelmed. Nothing much there. Was only there for a few mins. Glad we got to see it though as the building the market is in is really cool.

Stop in to browse in the stores or get a bite to eat in a quaint, old-style shopping center (I understand this is the oldest shopping center in Europe). Nice place to take a little break and respite from the sun or rain while walking around through downtown Dublin.

I was in full-on geek-girl mode, fully enjoying my brief jump into the scenes of "Once". My husband's only ever experienced the Broadway show with me, despite the fact that we'd planned on watching the movie before our trip. So, even though he knows the story and is familiar with most of the music, he didn't get why I was giddy over things like an old music store, an arch at the entrance of a park, or this crazy-looking indoor/outdoor mall.

I tried to explain it to him - to plant the visual of Guy and Girl walking through this arcade, towing a busted-up Hoover along behind them - but my words fell on dead ears.

No matter, *I* certainly loved that I was walking the same streets as Guy and Girl, and that I was able to visit something that means something to me, even if it's not a typical tourist attraction.

That being said, the arcade wasn't something I'd want to go back to revisit (unless I wanted more "Once"-themed photos), and it wasn't a spot we wanted to spend a whole lot of time in.

The aisles were cramped, and most of the stalls and stores were closed when we visited. We did one pass down the first aisle, then made a hard right and went back up the aisle on the other side, but we just didn't see anything that made us want to stop. And even if we did, there just wasn't enough room for us to stop to browse, while allowing for other people to pass by.

Still, it was a stop I didn't even think to look up or seek out, and it really did make me a tiny bit giddy, recounting the scene for an uninterested husband. There's something to that, at least.

There weren’t too many shops within the arcade, but the building itself was interesting enough for a few pictures. There was an used book store that looked promising, but really not much else.
