Good quality gift shop in Dublin

    Hi all,

    My wife and I are both from abroad and we’re going to spend our first non-lockdown Christmas in Ireland (we usually go to either mine or her country for the holidays). We’re going to spend Christmas night at a friend’s sister’s place and we are now looking for some presents to make. Since we don’t know these people very well, we were thinking of getting them something nice but not too expensive. Is there a shop in Dublin with nice gift ideas (we genuinely have nothing specific in mind) where we could just walk in and be inspired?

    Thanks in advance! ☺️

    Other posters may have better / less mainstream suggestions but there is Kilkenny on Nassau Street if stuck.

    I was going to suggest Kilkenny too. They have a great range to suit all budgets really.

    House of Ireland is down further on corner of Dawson street (well it was it's been a few years since I was there) it has similar stock but much smaller.

    there's one list from just a quick Google.

    I can vouch for Irish Design Shop on Dury Street (although I haven't been in it for a good while), and I have heard great things about April and The Bear.

    Thank you all! Kilkenny is quite handy for me so I might pop in later today. I'll also check out the ones HeidiHeidi mentioned. I'll let you know how it goes ;)
