George's Street Arcade
Great George's St. Dublin 2
Ireland's Oldest Shopping Centre

Ireland’s first purpose-built shopping centre and one of the oldest of its kind in Europe, George’s Street Arcade opened its doors in 1881 as the South City Market. Less than 5 minutes’ walk from Grafton Street, the enclosed red-bricked Victorian Market features over 50 retailers, ranging from chic boutiques to small stalls.
