Grafton Street is okay, it has some cool shops. I dont get the love for the St Stephens mall though, the building is nice enough but the shops are boring. Its got a TK Maxx but theres a better one in Blanchardstown (Large "American" type shopping complex 20 minute bustrip from town). Apart from that look for a couple of interesting shops hidden away on the 3rd level. The are good shops and malls located on Henry street. Make your way to the Spire (the huge needle-like structure on O'Connel Street) and, facing south (looking towards the river Liffey) take a right down Henry Street. There are a few department stores, Arnotts, Marks and Spencers ... Gaming and music stores ... sport shops, clothing chains like River Island etc. Also you can access 2 malls from Henry Street, Roches (Zara, H&M) about halfway down on the right, and Jarvis (Top Shop, Top Man, Dixons) a bit further down on the left. Dont bother with the foodhall at Jarvis, it blows. Instead, if youre hungry, keep going toward the end of Henry street and take the second to last road on the left, look for the Epicuran food court, its quite a small entrance so look hard. You can pick up mexican malaysian indian chinese or fish and chips here for a reasonable price. If youre looking for really cheap food (probably the cheapest resturaunts in the city centre), its the alleyway first on the right off Henry Street, youll see fruit and vege stalls there ... look for the asian resturaunts on the right where you can pick up a big plate of sweet n' sour pork and rice for 6 euro.
What to pay: a lot. this city is expensive

Honestly! You didn't expect to find a shopping centre in the sea did you?
Well worth a look round but only for the building itself I'm afraid not the contents!
Three floors of shops in this terrific looking mall - what a disappointment. Worth a look for the odd shop/stand so you might find something which was just what you were after but generally I thought the mall was tired and offered little compared to other areas.
The restaurant was also suprisingly poor - we didn't eat there, just walked out after looking at the food on display.
What to buy: Not a lot
Dublin most shopping centre. The place that you have to depend on when it's dark early in month of winter. Lots of lights, place to be seen and plenty of cafes around for you to sit enjoy watching people.
What to buy: Almost everything
This is a more upmarket shopping centre in one of the more low market ends of Dublin!
It has a range of international shopping outlets, including Debenhams, Top Shop, Marks and Spencers and Dixons.
What to buy: There's nothing much in this centre by way of gifts or souvenirs, but it is reasonably good for restaurants and clothes.
What to pay: Quite pricey-beware of some prices. Always check and shop around. Dublin shops have been notoriously discreet with their increase in prices since the introduction of the Euro. Where possible, buy groceries in more traditional shops such as Dunnes Stores and Superquinn. Marks and Spencers is ok if you're willing to spend about 3Euro on a loaf of bread!

Near St. Stephen's Green and Grafton Street, there is an enclosed mall called the Stephen's Green Shopping Centre. Inside this modern shopping mall, there are many nice shops and restaurants.
This is the first time I've seen this mall.
They keep Santa completely behind closed doors and windows. Very weird.
Located on the top of Grafton street......you will find sports shops, general clothing, bookstore, music shops etc
What to buy: stuff
What to pay: euros
