what is the shopping like in lisbon compared to Ireland?

I'm travelling to Portugal for a week this month and was thinking of doing some shopping to update my winter wardrobe. Prices and selection in Ireland can be limiting at times so was wondering if it is worthwhile saving my euros for Lisbon?

Hi,

I agree with pmal. I was in Dublim last month and I found it much more expensive and not much offer.

So save your euros, specially for shoes (much cheaper here), you wont regret.

Hope you enjoy lisbon!

I guess it depends on what kind of winter clothes you're after. The seasons do vary from country to country.

I myself was in Lisbon a year ago and had tought maybe to stock on some autumn gear. But in mid September the selection in Lisbon was still very summery compared to my very scandinavian needs so I had to settle for just one pair of sadals ;)

The city is packed with lovely shops I admit.
