    Laragh Woolen Mills: Sweaters and scarves galore!

    by kymbanm Updated Nov 7, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After spending the day wandering Glendalough, I began to see signs for this shop .... we followed the signs and were delighted with what we found. The shop is off the road and well marked. There are rooms of woolen sweaters, scarves, cloaks - mostly traditional, but some more trendy. I bought my Dad an Aran sweater for 40euros!

    I also found small items of Irish lace, Irish linen, and some kitchsy gifts to take home.

    What to buy: Aran sweaters, woolen cloaks and scarves were at the best prices anywhere I went in Ireland.

    Tina Morrissey: & the Mulrooney - sisters

    by globetrott Updated Jan 5, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My favorite CDs of irish Music are the ones by Tina Morrissey and The Mulrooney-sisters that are mainly sold at the Cliffs of Moher by members of the family or the artists themselves.
    You may buy a lot of Music-CDs and Cassettes directely at the souvenir-shop at the parking of the Cliffs of Moher. A bit cheaper than at the main shop you may as well go to the small shop-wagon of the family Mulrooney. All of the daughters seems to have recorded CDs and most of them are really great !
    In summer you may see at least one of the sisters singing high above the Cliffs, somewhere on your way to O'Connor's Tower. my favorite was Tina Mulrooney, her new name is now Tina Morrissey, playing the harp and singing with a really beautiful voice and her CD "A memory of Ireland" is my favorite !
    Click on her web-page, in order to hear her songs !
    simply click on"Listen"

    What to buy: I would like to say that the general souvenir-shop at the cliffs is not a bargain - it is ment for the bustourists, who do not have a lot of possibilities to compare prices and accept the prices given.
    For fans of Tina Morrissey and her sisters the shop at the Cliffs of Moher might be one of the few places, where you get these CDs without having to order them and wait a few days to be delivered - and the prices are cheaper as well at the cliffs than in Dublin or other places...

    What to pay: I do not remember the exacte prices, but the casettes on my picture were less expensive than ordinary cassettes in the large shops

    There are several shops surrounding the square that makes up central Eniskerry. I wandered in and out of a few... One has locan handcrafts, another has high end women's clothing, there are a few pubs to keep your companions entertained while you wander ....

    What to buy: I bought paper art w/ celtic runes, peat neckpieces for Xmas ornaments, and some modern wool sweaters ..... yup, I spent a lot of moolah, but individually the prices were the best I'd seen - so it was worth it ;)

    Temple Bar marketplace: Exotic foods in Temple Bar

    by Vintom Written Oct 6, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As we were walking around Temple Bar on a saturday we came across a small produce market. Here there were stalls selling everything from pretzels to salsa dishes. All freshly cooked and ready to eat.

    What to buy: One stall in particular had cheese of every description on sale, they even let you taste before you buy.

    What to pay: How much to pay is not the question as the foods are all fixed prices. It all depends on how hungry you are!

    In Ireland, the shops are just like the shops in England. With many big shops such as Tesco and WHSmiths. Be warned tho, if your accomodation isnt near the town, make sure you stock up, because once you are outside the towns, you could have to walk for hours to find the next shop.

    George's Street Arcade, Dublin: The oldest shopping centre in Dublin

    by hopang Updated Sep 8, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    George's Street Arcade is a colourful flea market rather than a shopping centre. It is located in an old Victorian style building with red brick walls and has lovely old Victorian architecture. George's Street Arcade is a tourist attraction even though you are not buying anything in the arcade and are merely walking through. It is fun to just wander through the arcade and look at some of these old things. Who knows you may just find something you really like to bring home! George's Street Arcade opened for business since the late 19th century. It is Dublin's oldest shopping centre.

    Most stalls deal in unique and strange articles and things. So it is a great place to pick up some strange and unique gifts. Most of the stalls deal in items such as portraits, pictures, hats, old postcards, secondhand books, paintings, coins, stamps, prints, old records, costume jewelleries, even used clothes, flowers shop, home accessories, antiques, body-piercing and some junk stores. Opening hours to George's Street Arcade are betweem 9.00 a.m. and 6.30 p.m. from Monday to Saturday and from 12.00 noon to 6.00 p.m. on Sunday. In our opinion it is well worth a visit especially if you are very fond of items from the flea markets!

    One of the finest shopping centres in Dublin: St. Stephen's Green Shopping Centre in Dublin

    by hopang Updated Sep 7, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    St. Stephen's Green Shopping Centre is one of the largest and finest shopping centres located right in the heart of the city of Dublin. It is located on the south end of the busy Grafton Street next to the Fusiliers Gate and St. Stephen's Green Park. The famous Gaiety Theatre is situated just opposite the shopping centre. St. Stephen's Green Shopping Centre has more than 100 shops and eateries spread over four levels. Some of the well-known shops include TK Maxx, Boots, Mothercare, Dunnes Stores, Hallmark and The Lapptop. However most of the shops in the shopping centre deal in boutiques clothing.

    The shopping centre opened in 1988 with lovely architecture both inside and outside and it offers free wi-fi to shoppers and visitors. Toilets are located on the top floor and they charge 20 cents for the use of toilets. It is really a plesant place to wander around especially when it is rainning outside. The interior of the shopping centre has a large clock erected roughly in the center of the shopping centre. Opening hours of the shopping centre are betweem 9.00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. daily. You may e-mail to the following address for more information:- info@stephensgreen.com

    What to buy: We were mainly wandering around the shopping centre to enjoy the sight. However we purchased some greeting and anniversary cards from Hallmark store on the ground floor. Prices of greeting cards from Hallmark are fixed and the same everywhere in the city.

    Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, Dublin: Elegant Powerscourt shopping centre in Dublin

    by hopang Updated Sep 8, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Powerscourt Townhouse Centre is an impressive shopping centre located off Grafton Street. It is perhaps the most elegant shopping centre in the city of Dublin. There are approximately 40 outlets and eateries in the shopping centre, dealing mainly in antiques, gifts, art and crafts, bonzai plants, trendy fashion wears as well as jewelleries. The shopping centre is located in an old Georgian building which was designed by Robert Mack. It was constructed in the middle of the 18th century as a townhouse built for Lord Powerscourt. The townhouse was turned to a shopping centre only in 1980s.

    If you walk through the main entrance through South William Street, you will be able to see the old entrance hall together with an old grand staircase. It is certainly pleasant to wander around the shopping centre especially when it is rainning outside, do some window shopping and perhaps have some tea break at the cafe on the ground floor. We wandered around the shopping centre to kill time before our Riverdance show at the Gaiety Theatre nearby. Opening hours to Powerscourt Townhouse Centre are between 10.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. from Monday to Saturday and between 12.00 noon and 6.00 p.m. on Sunday.

  • Dublin: Shopping Paradise

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are into shopping Dublin is the place for you. There are hundreds of good shops, nice shopping malls and shopping streets. I love to spend a whole day shopping here when I am in Ireland!

    What to buy: Shoes, Books, Clothes, whatever you want! I had to find sunglasses here once and it took me ages though... maybe that's because of the Irish weather ;)

    What to pay: Unfortunately I have heard that Ireland is now the most expensive of the "Euro-Countries" but I never found it too expensive!

    Here there and everywhere: Irish Specialties

    by tvor Written Jun 5, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Everyone thinks about claddagh rings, Waterford Crystal and celtic type symbols when they think about shopping in Ireland. Don't forget Irish linen, woolen goods and Connemara marble as well. All of these things are readily available in most shops, gift shops as well as general department stores. Shop around though, as prices will often vary wildly and none of it is all that cheap for authentic items.

    What to buy: When i went i tried to avoid the tacky souvenirs and didn't buy one thing with a clover or a leprechaun on it! In spite of it being a big tourist draw, the Blarney Woolen Mill outside of Cork by Blarney Castle is actually a very good place to shop. They have a huge variety of goods, crystal, china, woolen goods, linen, books, music, and the fun tacky stuff too :)

    Hand knit, hand woven woolen goods are exquisite and useful. I brought home a lovely Killarney red scarf and aran gloves. I bought a solid Waterford crystal cottage for 60 euros and that was the same price everywhere i saw it including at the factory. I now have some antique linen table runners and new linen napkins, some earrings with connemara marble and amythest, and a really comfy pair of socks with the Guinnes logo :)

    Irish Gifts - Claddagh Jewelry

    by lbhspatriot Written Sep 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the best Irish gifts you could possibly buy for a loved one or a friend is a piece of Claddagh Jewelry. Claddagh is a traditional jewelry piece from Ireland that symbolises love, friendship and loyalty. Claddagh design consists of a heart, symbolising love and hands that symbolises friendship and the crown for loyalty.

    As a traditional ring for Ireland the Irish Claddagh ring is a perfect gift to be given to a loved one, maybe a family member or a loved friend. It is also popularly worn by singles seeking love but is traditionally worn differently than a wedding couple. With its strong representation of unity the ring itself sends gives a powerful message about who wears one.

    How to wear a claddagh ring?

    When the ring is worn on the right hand with the design facing outwards, away from the body, it usually represents that person is single and possibly looking for love. When in love with someone the ring would be still worn on the right hand but with the design facing inwards.
    For someone engaged the ring is worn on the left hand with the design facing outwards, after marriage the ring should be worn on the left with the design facing inwards.

    "With my hands I give you my heart, and crown it with my love."

    For me it is a beautifull way to say "I love you" and a gift with a true irish spirit.

    Dixon art gallery: Art from the Tory Island school

    by sourbugger Written Feb 9, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Several of the 175 inhabitants of Tory island (in the far noth west of Ireland_ enjoy painting and there is something of a 'Tory Island school' that has developed

    For example this bird's eye view of Tory, is by Patsy Dan. The King of Tory, Patsy Dan is an original member of the internationally renowned school of "primitive" Tory painters inspired and encouraged by English artist Derek Hill over 40 years ago.
    This image of Tory, richly coloured and detailed, reflects the treeless (there are actually no trees at all) barren aspect of an island rich in tradition and mythology.

    Tory artists have exhibited in major galleries in Ireland, Britain and throughout Europe and their paintings are to be found in many important collections. The work of the painters and other examples of island art such as model boats are exhibited in Gailearaf Dixon. Mainland artists also exhibit in Gailearaí Dixon.

    What to buy: Original works of art
