What sorta stuff do they sell?

The Maynooth one is pretty big too, would be handy if they got it in.

Yeah a hugh new one on the Monread road, not far from the ball.

Continue down passed Woodies and Smyths if your heading from Dublin and it's on the right.
Biggest one in Ireland I've been led to believe.

Is it cheaper than homebrew stores? do they sell kits or just equipment?

I've been there, but not recently.
I'll take a look the weekend if i'm down that direction.

Anyone else know what they have in store. Can't find anything on their website.

with tesco when you log onto the site it knows your clubcard number and your address and only shows stuff in your local store.

I wish there was an option to select a different shop.

Somebody living near might be able to see it and cut & paste it here.

What weren't you impressed by, I'm curious, can you expand.

Tesco Home Brew seems to be like an urban legend at this stage, although I read in England they sell Young's(?) kits in the larger stores along with the basics like fermentors, bottle cappers and some ingredients.

The curiosity is getting the better of me so i'll have to take a trip down

I would have only expected a small range to test the water. Just like I think dunnes started to sell limited amounts of protein powders used by athletes, most would make do with the poor choice for convenience.

Is there anywhere in dublin city centre actually selling kits now?

Country cellar in dun laoghaire told me they don't do it anymore.

My Beer And Wine in Rathmines, although they don't stick to their opening hours and they're not as cheap as online retailers. Handy if you need something on the spot, though.

They are down near all the kitchen bins and tins of paint

A mix of beer kits and wine kits and a few misc. items/ingredients.

Mostly youngs beer kits and brew buddy with a woodforde's wherry and a few John Bull tins.
They did have yeast sachets, sanitiser and bottle tops. Handy to know if you are stuck.
They had a few 5 Gallon kegs too.
Didn't seem to be very cheap compared to any other HB shops i've browsed in.

They open from 12-7pm except on mondays..they're not the cheapest place in the world but they're the only bricks and mortar homebrew shop in Dublin.

They also have a very large range of stuff and the guys who work there know thier stuff.
