Shopping malls in Dublin


In addition to sprawling malls where expats who prefer the mania of the one-stop shop can sift through the aisles, there also are a few different shopping areas in Dublin, each with their own character.

Shopping in Grafton Street

Shopping in Grafton StreetGrafton Street is the pulse of the city centre. This pedestrian street runs from St Stephen’s Green down to Trinity College and stops at the 'indecent' statue of Molly Malone (nicknamed "The Tart With The Cart"). Ironically enough, Molly stands guard over some of the most expensive shops in the city.
Notable shops in the area include high-end favourites such as Ted Baker, Karen Millen and Swarovski.

Shopping in Jervis Street

The brash cousins of the older shopping districts, Jervis and Henry streets are located over the river. This is where people find the hot high-street imitations of catwalk style in H&M, Zara and Forever 21. Ireland's largest department store, Arnotts, can be found here too.
Henry Street leads up to Moore Street where multi-cultural Dublin mixes with the traditional at the vibrant fruit and veg market.

Suburban shopping in Dublin

Living out in the "sticks" (as Dubliners call anything five minutes from O’ Connell Bridge) doesn’t mean settling outside of the style circle. Dundrum Shopping Centre in the south is one of the largest in Europe and has nearly 200 shops as well as loads of restaurants, a cinema, and a theatre.

Another shopping highlight is Liffey Valley and Blanchardstown which are sure to empty the wallet and make a person’s head spin, and IKEA lurks out in Carrickmines for anyone looking to furnish an empty house.
