view web site ›'s insider take:

Designer craft gallery Designyard made its name in Temple Bar before relocating to the hyperbusy corner of Grafton and Nassau streets. The new location certainly allows more space: Owner Gerry Crosbie stocks around 80 Irish fine-art designers' creations (including whimsical sculptures from Fidelma Massey, silver by Seamus Gill, and ceramics by Bríd Lyons and Ayelet Lalor) plus the work of numerous other artists, glassblowers, and craftspeople. Covered in mirrored panels throughout, the new store provides for wedding and corporate business as well as the contemporary design for which it made its name, and includes a two-floor exhibition space upstairs. While the change in address probably makes commercial sense, it has to be said that something of Designyard's charm has been lost at its new location—customers now brush past a forbidding security guard, and staff have assumed an annoyingly high "hover" factor.

Open Mondays through Wednesdays 10 am to 6:30 pm, Thursdays 10 am to 8 pm, Fridays 9:30 am to 6 pm, and Saturdays 9:30 am to 6:30 pm.
