Dublin shopping

Shopping in Dublin, like everything else in the Irish capital, received a welcome shot in the arm during the boom years. Visitors to Dublin cannot be restrained, of course, from stocking up on all the shillelaghs and shamrock and Guinness memorabilia they can lay their hands on, but at least now they can add the pick of couture (Alias Tom, Costume, Brown Thomas), swanky malls (Dundrum Town Centre, Powerscourt Townhouse) and distinctively Irish design (Designyard, Avoca). Prices in Dublin shops remain high (a situation exacerbated by euro-friendly exchange rates), but the Emerald Isle was hit hard by the recent recession, and retailers are beginning to respond by offering better value.
