I came to Dublin on an antique buying trip, to find good quality. Having read one review on trip advisor that was slamming the place it left me fearing the worst. How wrong that review is. The street has many large top quality antique shops,...More

There is nothing like an antiques quarter at this location. This listing appears to be well out of date. A couple of small antique shops and an auction centre which has periodic auctions. We expected a lot more.

We weren't aware of the area before our stay and just happened upon it. It turned out to be our favorite part of the city and wish we had more time to spend in it. Great architecture, shops and food.

There are quite a few shops packed in to a small area. There are some examples of quality antiques. You could spend maybe an hour or two browsing but from my perspective nothing that I felt was a must have. The dealers were polite and...More

Might be great if you are a high end furniture dealer but there wasn't a lot for the average enthusiast and what they did have was WAY overpriced. We had much better luck on Hanover Street in Edinburgh- anyone know a better destination in Dublin?

Francis Street in the centre of Dublin has a small selection of about 10 excellent antiques shops. These offer really high quality antique furniture and decorative objects. I was impressed with the quantity as much as the quality. Unfortunately nothing that appealed to my collecting...More

I shop antiques all over United States and Europe. This is a small quarter (one street) but I found "4 treasures" in Michael Connell Antiques. His store was quite eclectic. I found old Irish glass, India Sterling Silver, France Limoges and African art. Michael was...More

Looking for collectibles, but the one shop that looked promising was closed. Other shops had more high end antiques, furniture and large items.
