Can I have some Dublin tips, please? :)

Hi all!

I will have a visit in Dublin in 27.-30.9. I would ask now some "short-holiday" tips. What are those "must-see" sights in Dublin? Where I can find these young people's shops? Like primark, topshop etc? Like what are the best shopping areas which have these kind of shops? Is there some good food places where all the people like to eat? Maybe some italin, meksikon, asian or german food?

I would be so thankful if I got some great tips for my holiday! All can answer; local people and those who have travelled in Dublin.

Thank you so much! :)

Don't miss Kilmainham Goal and for something different and a bit quirky, the "mummies" in St Michans crypt.

Penneys is the Irish equivalent of Primark, in Henry Street ( there may be other branches) this is a busy shopping area .Also

check out Grafton Street all the big chains are there.

Check out The George's Street Arcade and the areas around it for some quirky and some vintage stalls and shops.


Lots of shopping in the Henry Street area of the city centre Jervis Street has all of the usual suspects, The Ilac Centre across the street has plenty too. Grafton Street on the South if the city has plenty of shops to keep you happy for hours.......wander around Brown Thomas and see the all the designer brands.






Stephens Green shopping centre at the top of Grafton Street also has a great choice of shopping including a big Dunnes stores, which is kinda like Primark.

If you are interested in fashion, try to visit the National Museum at Collins Barracks to see their exhibition of Irish clothes through the years.
