    (Posting for a friend...)

    I was wondering whether anyone would be able to recommend any sort of cool little shops around Dublin: southside, northside, whichever. (Not really after checking out department stores, though.)

    So, you know, what are your faves? I haven't seen as much of Dublin as I'd like or ought, even though I've been here for almost a year. And windowshopping is free!

    I thought you peeps might have some ideas.

    Thanks heaps.

    what exactly are you lookin to buy?

    If its clothes, which I assume it is then your best bet is to go through places in town
    off the main streets like grafton st and henry st.. down all the side streets and
    smaller shopping arcades are lots of shops for every possible taste..

    Give some more details on what your looking to buy, if its clother, the the style or
    look your into etc..

    There's a cool shop that fits that bill very nicely in Temple Bar (in the main square). The name escapes me at the moment :dunno:

    It is what it's.

    As said above, all the shops around the georges street arcade area. Very quirky, and prob the only non-commercially raped part of the city centre.

    Urban Outfiitters in Temple bar. Ripoff prices but they have fun toys, clothes and a record store on the 2nd floor.

    happy daze on crown alley in temple bar is pretty cool- they sell clothes, jewellery, hair dye, incense, "tobacco products" and other assorted acoutrements. and the poster shop attached to it is pretty cool too.

    other than that, tambuli, and most of the georges st arcade

    Army Bargains on Little Mary Street tbh


  • Registered Users Posts: 735 ✭✭✭beardedchicken


    i'd say you'd need to try a costume shop or something for the bowler hat; either that or jenny vander, or the shop in the arcade where jenny vander used to be, i think that's a men's shop now.

    either that or write a very nice letter to someone from the apprentice boys

    lol

    just would have liked one, for a quirky little thing, know what i mean?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 66 ✭✭usualsuspect


    Thanks for all the suggestions. I notice not much has been mentioned on the North side - does anyone have any favourite North side shopping destinations?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,560 ✭✭✭Slutmonkey57b


    Coyle's on Aungier St. is the only "hatter" left in Dublin so if you don't see a bowler hat there you won't get one.

    evolution in the gpo arcade has nice stuff


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,560 ✭✭✭Woden
