It really depends on your price range - we have a shop chain here called Carrolls and the sell a large range of souvenirs at a reasonable price. If your looking for something more authentic your best to check out The Kilkenny Shop on Nassu Street (at the side of Trinity College) - I believe there are other souvenir shops on Nassu Street which sell more traditional Irish products. They would be a bit more pricey than Carrolls as these shops sell actual products made in Ireland.

Hi Narelle, There are many many gift /souvenir shops! For fun more touristy gifts try Carrolls shops, located in St Stephens Green shopping centre, and Westmoreland St near O Connell Bridge. AVOCA on Suffolk Street has quirky more quality gifts, and Kilkenny Design on Nassau Street has a good choice of Irish designer gifts. Happy shopping!

Yes I would say the markets on Merrion Square on the Sundays - the gift shops around the centre that have been mentioned here (Carrolls etc.) are tacky, tawdry and really expensive. What type of gifts are you thinking about? Aran wool? Waterford Crystal? Some Irish Whiskey perhaps (Bushmills Black Bush or Middleton are my personal faves)

Hi Paul, unfortunately we'll only in Dublin on weekdays, for 1 week (sadly) so we'll miss any markets.
More something traditionally Irish, or that shows Irish scenes, photographs, Claddagh rings or other Irish jewellery.
Avoca, Kilkenny stores, O'Carrolls Gift shop.

for classy Irish made gifts, head to a shop called "Avoca" which is on Suffolk Street (in the heart of Dublin near Trinity College). for cheaper and silly (t-shirts/hats/jokes etc, try Carrolls Irish Gifts which has a branch on the same street)

They have a massive range of souvenirs in Carroll's shop. You'll find them basically in every corner of Dublin and in some other cities/towns in Ireland.
