My friend and I had a very enjoyable time shopping in the Kilkenny Shop in Dublin. Them, once we had selected our items, we shipped them home together and split the $30 cost, saving hassles with the Irish taxes. Their offerings of very high quality, some notably Irish souveniers but not cheap looking as in other venues. You will enjoy... More

We were impressed by the molded glass vases and dishes. If I lived here, I would come here to buy items with which to decorate my house.

This is a very friendly stop for breakfast in the morning. Great value, 5 items for €7.50 but that includes two slices of toast and huge mug of coffee or tea with good baristas. I've come here twice now and the only let down for me is the scrambled egg tasted fine but not amazing and the fried egg was... More

Everywhere we travel I must shop and buy either pottery, textiles, linens, jewelry, perfume, candles anything that will remind me of the places I've visited and the foods that I've eaten and the things that I've seen. What a major disappointment this store was. The store is quite large and filled with things that in any other circumstance would have... More

This is one of my favorite places in Dublin to get a quick, delicious meal ir snack (and the shopping isn't bad either). For breakfast, you can get a choice of 5 hot items (choice of eggs, sausage, bacon, tomato, mushroom, potato cake, etc) plus toast and coffee or tea for 7.5 euros. They also have a large selection of... More

This shop is great if you looking for quality products by Irish designers. I grabbed a few bargains here that are fantastic gifts. Not a huge shop but plenty on offer under one roof. Highly recommended

If, like me, you dislike the tacky tourist shops, visit this fascinating and authentically Irish store across the road from Trinity College. It's pricey, but inside you will find the crafts of local artists, eg Orla Kiely. Well worth it for real, quality, Irish crafts that will be a welcome addition to any home. The breakfast upstairs was also stunning.... More

We stopped in this store twice during our brief stay in Dublin and discovered a nicely organized department store selling many Irish wares such as Beleek pottery and Waterford crystal. The second floor has an attractive, clean and welcoming cafeteria which serves wonderful treats such as scones and cakes. Wifi is available free of charge. Well worth the visit.

This store was recommended to us by a tour guide. We didn't get to go to the café, but it looked like a nice setting.

Popped in here for breakfast one morning and was pleasantly surprised. It costs around 7 euros for 5 items...and it was delicious. Well cooked and the scrambled egg was very moreish. The café is above the shop, which I didn't have time to look around, but I hope to go back next time I'm in Dublin.
