American publication, The New York Times, have published their top five shops in Dublin.
Veering off Grafton Street and heading towards the Dublin's Creative Quarter, NY Times reporter Elaine Glusac discovered a myriad of boutiques, galleries and cafés.
Focusing on local artists and designers, Elaine chose her top 5 shops in Ireland's capital.
1. [Made] Store & Gallery
Found on South William Street, [Made] is a concept store filled with collections from Ireland's leading contemporary designers and artists including Ale Walsh, Beatriz Palacios, Electronic Sheep, Edge Only and Emma Manley.
2. Irish Design Shop
In 2008, jewellers Clare Grennan and Laura Caffrey created the Irish Design Shop, a small business dedicated to promoting the work of Irish designers. The shop celebrates those making Irish crafts and products ranging from homeware and kitchenware to jewellery and outdoor accessories.
Not exactly a shop but if you're looking to spend your money in Dublin while filling your stomach with Irish goods then this is the spot to do it in. As The New York Times reporter puts it:
"The Irish-ingredient-focused menu features oysters, Dublin Bay prawns and grass-fed beef, served in a plant-filled room where the windows are often open."
This vintage clothing boutique has been on the Irish scene since 2011. The shop is located on Exchequer St and is filled to the brim with reasonably priced vintage clothing ranging from A-line skirts and frilly blouses to 1950's style dresses and colourful handbags.
Found on South William Street, MoMuse is a jewellery store that offers bespoke rings, interior accessories, stunning jewellery from Merle O'Grady and Margaret O’Rourke as well as silk scarves from Mucros Weavers and cashmere knits from Eilis Boyle.
