loved it! could have stayed longer, so much to take in and so many friendly faces to chat to. delicious food at yoga hub and yummy hot chocolate and cake at oscar vernes's coffee dock. Chitty chitty bang on at the movies, so i could have a laugh listening to the children there commenting on the movie, 'but the pirates can't drive cars dad!' while I rested my feet after a few hours of mingling around the many and varied and fascinating stalls. thoroughly enjoyed every minute, ye have done it again guys, but better! well done, and best of wishes for happy shoppers and traders , fun and prosperity for 2013 , well worth repeated visits, it is so much more than a market...

Thank gra g

well, with the New Mingle, in a lovely spot on Camden Street, it's refreshing... it's still as special... whatever the remnants in Thomas Street might like you to believe... The amazing Mingle has moved, and amazingly got better...... There are just so many little treasures and the ambience is wonderful... I'll be back to 60 Camden Street again and again.......

To be honest, I am biased, being a trader in the Mingle, but it really is a visual delight, and a wonderful place to work and be given the opportunity to really try and have a go at a successful business doing something that I love. I couldn't be more delighted with the new location at 60 Camden Street, where it has continued to grow and evolve, as usual, since it opened its doors. We have a few mingle classics and some great new interesting additions too. Can't wait to see what's next to appear in our wonderland of enchantment. Hope to see you there. Just look for our fez adorned greeting monkey in the window, Prince Fez Bomingle is always happy to see new faces.

Having seen this place on TV3 about a year ago, I've been a visitor to this marcade (a jumble between arcade and market!) for a while now and have followed them to their new premises on the buzzing Camden Street- opposite Cassidy's pub. I must say that I visited the new marcade on the first week of opening (about three weeks ago) for it's 'soft opening' but returned on Thursday last to a refreshing and packed market full of new stalls and shops! The atmosphere was friendly, quirky and very bohemian.

As you go in the door, there are stalls selling arts and crafts, fine art and illustrations. You can then go up the stairs to visit Oscar Verne's Coffee Bar (I bought a delicious 'mingle' hot chocolate there). As you walk down the side you are greeted with an array of shops selling vintage clothes (if you want a truly vintage dress for hardly anything, girls then this place is a must!), books, a food bar, a retro video game place and a few others. I then went downstairs to see what else was on offer. Beautiful antiques of all sorts, furniture, hats and fascinators and a welcoming shop selling incense, candles, handmade photo albums, dresses and colourful jumpers.

Unfortunately 'Dublin's Smallest Cinema' area is not ready but I was told at the coffee place that it will be open next weekend if not this weekend. The mingle stage will also be set up in the same area I think.

All in all, I personally much prefer The Ferocious Mingle Marcade's new home. There seems to be far more going on and a better vibe than the onethat was on Thomas Street which I found to be the only nice place to visit in that area. It's also far easier to get to, not to mention warmer!!

Overall a great and throughly unique place to visit for people who want to explore somewhere that bit different. I'm looking forward to seeing what else the mingle will bring to Camden St. Well done, guys.

This marcade is quite hard to find, took about half an hour to walk here from the city center, since I didn't know where I was exactly. Walking in, it was very promising, goods on display, you go up or down. Upstairs was a pub type bar at the head of the stair. There is one shop after that and a bar witha food counter.

Now here is where the unfriendly atmosphere comes in. Standing at the counter talking to a customer was a gentleman claiming he was very stressed from having started this business a year ago and now having to cope with all sorts of idiots and their idiotic questions. He continued on in that vein for a while, so I decided to take my idiotic self with my idiotic money elsewhere.

Only 2 shops where there anyway, besides the food and drink counters. The big draw of the silent film playing was closed for repairs.
