We were walking sound Dublin and noticed this shopping centre from having visited Powerscourt earlier. We were delighted surprised by the retreat it was from the busy streets. The wooden floors were lovely and creaky and our highlight was the antique stores and jewellery stores. Though they were way out of our price range we enjoyed the window shopping. On... More

This once-summer house turned into a melange of shops, restaurants and resting spaces is a great way to take a breather in central Dublin, grab a coffee, drink or a meal and enjoy people-watching. Oh there is plenty of good designer shopping on the sides of the courtyard and a clean set of bathrooms on the top floor if you... More

On a morning walk we went to the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre not knowing what to expect. We were surprised. The multilevel shopping center was a most attractive mall. Antiques, gifts—they had it all in a very pleasant atmosphere. Just off Grafton Street, it seemed shoppers of all ages come to this shopping paradise where there are more than forty shops... More

We just happened to walk into the Powerscourt Centre as we were exploring near Trinity College. This was a real treat! (Especially since our son is getting married and many of the shops are designer jewelry, clothing, wedding). There are three levels of small specialty shops - the vendors are lovely and very helpful. (But then, that's pretty true of... More

Visited Willow and Clo, a beautiful artisan jewellery shop owned by Chloe Townsend. So friendly and helpful she recommended lunch in the Pepperpot upstairs. Best bacon and cream cheese sandwich in a long time...and I bought a gorgeous ring from Chloe too. Highly recommend both these places.

Found in the creative quarter of Dublin, the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre houses an assortment of shops and restaurants in a delightful space. We stumbled across this as we were exploring the area and were glad we had . Definitely worth a visit and a wander round its array of shops.

An old Mansion now housing boutique shops, antique shops, jewellers and a large restaurant. It's worth a pop around just to have a nosey.

Beautiful mansion house now a place to shop and eat.The integrity of the building remains and is an evocative place to visit.Great places to eat and individual shops. So unusual and on a quiet Sunday was open and buzzing with people.Bought some Irish gifts from a lovely shop.Wished I could have stayed longer.Courtyard covered so is great in any weather.

This massive former townhouse of a noble family now houses several cafes in the covered courtyard, many individual shops of local wares and a theatre on the top floor that presents hour long, lunch time plays. Very special experience.
