Irelandís capital city is not all history and bars but has a worthy shopping scene as well. Most of the areas are all within a twenty minute walk of each other.
Starting on the Southside of the city, this includes the pedestrianised Grafton Street, and it is regarded as the more chic area of Dublin. Shopping in Dublin includes iconic stores such as Brown Thomas which houses designers such as Vera Wang, Louis Vuitton and Chanel and Wiers, the oldest jewellers in the city. Of course the street includes all of the high street shops you would expect in any major city, but a stroll down here is still worthwhile.
Nearby there are a host of shopping in Dublin options such as St Stephens Green, which you can move to after Grafton Street. There is also the more specialist Powerscourt shopping centre a few minutes away. The Temple Bar area is also nearby, although more renowned for its bars, also has some good alternative boutiques which are well worth a visit.
When you are in Dublin, you may think of OíConnell Street. As one of the widest streets in Europe it looks particularly large, however for a tourist it has nothing that couldnít be bought in any city, with a similar look to many high streets nowadays.
Much more in keeping with the Irish shopping experience is Moore Street market. The open air stalls are a great place to find the self appointed custodians of Dublin wit. They are said to have a mordant, but engaging sense of humour and are always happy to join in a lively debate. This short street has a mix of local and ethnic produce and is always swarming with character.
If planning to do any shopping in Dublin it is worth noting that the majority of stores are closed on Sundays. Leaving you free for other sightseeing opportunities.
