    Cork Shopping

    The market has existed on this site since 1610 but the present building dates back to 1786. Refurbished after a fire in 1980, it is a great place for the world gourmets, who will find here anything they can dream of, from exotic foreign foods, spices and luxury items to such Irish specialities as crubeen (pig's foot), tripe and drisheen, already...

    Kinsale Shopping

    My wife and I bought a Mastercut Vase from Kindale Crystal which had to be cut and then sent to our home in the U.S. The price was $670.00 US. The vase that we received was not the one we ordered when in their shop. The vase we received had many less cuts in it, resulting in a less than spectacular looking vase. Indeed, the four sides of the vase...

  • Kilkenny Design Centre

    Kilkenny Shopping

    Highly recommended one-stop shopping (much of it duty-free) for Irish crafts: glassware, pottery, woolens, linens, local stoneware, jams, jellies, stationary, etc. Excellent selection and helpful staff, immediately across from Kilkenny Castle in a converted stables.

  • Pottery

    Dingle Shopping

    The shop is packed with all kinds of items but the pottery is my interest. For what looks like a small building on the outside, ( with a beautiful seascape murial painted across the entire front of the shop) it has all the main Irish potteries in one end. I could have spent a whole day there. The potteries are displayed on old style dressers ( I...

    The Sweater Market is one of the first buildings visitors to Kilronan see. It houses a variety of sweaters of different colors and patterns - beware the stretching! Here we purchased a few gifts but followed the advice of locals and avoided the wool products. There were patterned golf caps there that I still think of! Buy your sweaters elsewhere -...

    Cobh Shopping

    My shopping tip is brief and to the point. Don't shop at the Heritage Centre. Do shop in town. Cobh is not exactly a shoppers paradise but along East Beach, the shopping street by the harbour , there are several nice gift-shops with ceramics, glass and other craft items. There are also a number of discount type stores where you can pick up little...

    Lush store concept is truly unique. The hand-made natural soaps are shaped like foods such as cakes, fudge, cheese slices, very cute. Entering Lush store is just like entering your local delicatessen, except that it smells strong perfume. I have never tried its products, but I think they are worth trying. I found the store for the first time while...

    After the tour (which was included in our bus tour so we didn't pay extra for it), we went to the in-house Waterford shop. Afterwards, they told us that they would free engraving if we bought something - which my grandson did. I also paid to have the item shipped home to his family. I felt that I didn't want to have the worry of it breaking during...

    Shopping opportunities in Kilkenny, while not on a par with Dublin, have improved dramatically in recent years. The Market Cross is an open-air shopping mall off High Street. It was developed in the early nineties and is named after the city's market cross - this cross dated from 1335 but was removed in 1771.

    Dingle Shopping

    There are lots of Crystal shops in Ireland, but my favorites are Dingle and Kinsale Crystal. Co-incidentally they are each owned and operated by brothers. Trained in Waterford but frustrated by the commercialized for quick and easy sale patterns of modern Waterford, each brothe broke out to form his own company that specializes in deep cut,...

    This is a great little shop on the waterfront with a ton of different celtic shirts and t-shirts. If you spend a while in Ireland you will notice that the same 20 or so t-shirt designs are at all the tourist shops, and they're all pretty stupid too - most of them have to do with sheep or rain, or sheep IN rain.
