Dublin Shopping & Design

This past Sunday, we went into Dublin City for a little explore (We live 8km from the city centre on the coast) and we returned feeling totally inspired! While Dublin is small in comparison to London, it’s brimming with cool design stores, hip coffee hideouts and its a melting pot of cultures and styles.

Powerscourt Townhouse is a must shopping destination. Oh and drinks after at Farrier & Draper is rather lush!

Upon entering, you are met by, The Garden. Beautiful displays of flowers and plants lead one to a buzzing courtyard, cafe’s and designer stores.

One Irish Jewellery Designer that I’ve been following for a while now is Chupi. I love her Star Signs & North Star collections. chupi-gold-ring-your-north-star-1_b5c972c1-bb59-4f8a-9da8-1f792bf079f0_1024x1024chupi-web-gold-necklace-we-are-all-made-of-stars-aries-1_a0fdc481-7e11-4e78-9464-9e6eacbf99d4_1024x1024img_7948

Dublin is easy to take a stroll around . . .

Oh my . . . this bag! 

Birkenstock & Camper we have back home too – but boy are they favourites when it comes to comfort and creating that euro style!

Oooh these are on the wishlist!

While it’s not really my thing, the high streets of course have the fancy pants stores too.

And that’s a wrap! (The toddler has spoken!)
