A wonderfully re-purposed building filled with charming, mostly upscale, shops with a light filled dining space in the centre. While we weren't able to sample the restaurant(s); we did make purchases from some of the businesses located in the building. A perfect rainy day stop, plus good for people watching and picking up a truly special souvenir of your time... More

We went for a quick cup of coffee at the weekend in the main restaurant in the centre. However, they were out of most things we asked for e.g. scones and strawberry tartlet. Surprising but it was only 2pm. But it took them that long to let us know that we were finished our beverages before they told us. While... More

This is one of the most beautiful shopping centres I have ever visited. It is hidden and stylishly laid out over 2 mezanines witin an 18th century Georgian townhouse in the centre of Dublin. You can spend easliy 2 hours here, if only having lunch in the cenre and watching the gentle world go by as you eat.

If you're a bit tired of shopping or visiting the bars in Dublin, you can continue to shop of drink beers here ! A lot of very nice shops, combined with a cosy covered terrace inside. Go for it !

Arrived at approx 4.30pm. Kitchen was closing shortly so we had to hurry our order. I had the steak on ciabatta and companion had lamb stew. My steak was very tasty if a little on the small side. I don't have a large appetite but delighted I had ordered a side order of fries or would have left hungry! Companion... More

Happened upon this beautiful little gem. Great little shops and yummy restaurants. Do not remember the name of the place I had lunch at but had a great pot of tea and sandwich. Just enjoyed the view of this space.

Good spot to sit and relax after shopping. Had the Irish stew in the food area which was yummy and so filing. Have been before and preferred the second visit as the staff seemed calmer and our waiter was very friendly. 2-4-1 wine is also a nice touch.

Thank KatSeam
