This little gem of a place ahs everything you thought Dublin would be like--from great little brick-a-brack shops to really high end fashion places that you would normally see on Bond Street.

Lovely old building full of shops with a little bit of everything. I like it as a welcome change from the usual retail outlets. You can carry on a conversation with some interesting people even if you cannot find something to purchase. The food offerings are great.

When my tour guid mentioned this was one of the oldest "Arcades" still around I knew I had to go, but I couldn't help but feel let down. There were some nice stores and great art for sale, but the market is tiny and a good 3/4 the stores weren't selling anything to write home about. If you're into history... More

After reading a few reviews from Tripadvisor on how cool and quirky this Street Arcade was, I was a bit disappointed once I was there. My boyfriend and I were there on a weekend afternoon in the summer time (peak tourist season!) but many stalls were closed or were being renovated, perhaps? The stalls that were there seemed to sell... More

I had walked past Nutty Delights in the George’s Street arcade but thankfully a voice in my head told me to double back to try a sample. The lady attending the stall, Wish (that’s her name), has a full selection of samples to try out and is very friendly and helpful. I ended up with a bag of smoked almonds... More

We find Dublin a very walkable city, especially when the chrissie fever hits, there is such a buzz in the air, with hordes of people shopping, this is one of our go to places, as it is a little different to the norm, it is nice just to cruise around the shops under cover, definetly a place to keep in...

As I was walking around the city looking for the Dublin castle, I got sidetracked into this street. Some stores caught my eye including eateries. Suddenly, I felt hungry. I ate and then walked around this street. There are some shops worth walking into but nothing special to lure me to stay longer.

While wandering Dublin, we ran into the George's Street Arcade. It was a quirky collection of stores that was worth taking the time to browse.

We enjoyed strolling through George's Street Arcade and checking out all the goods for sale. My wife picked up a very nice piece of Irish-made silver jewelry. Also, the sausage rolls at Lolly and Cook's were fantastic, very hearty.
