The centre of Dublin is condensed and most of these shops are close to each other. Cat's walking tour will take you to more stores, but these my favourites.

If you're going to visit one clothing shop in Dublin, visit this one. Eclectic pieces by emerging local designers and colourful curated vintage span five floors.

You'll find colourful pieces form different eras in this vibrant basement vintage shop. It reminds me of the eclectic stores in Kensington Market in Toronto, but maybe even more extra.

The Powercourt Centre is a really cool open space shopping centre with fashion stores and restaurants. Not everything is in the mall is ethical, but I did notice a lot of local and European brands stocked on the top floor, around where Chupi, a local jewelry brand, is stocked.

If you love tweed, you'll be in heaven here. It's delightfully overwhelming with every colour and pattern imaginable. If I didn't already own two tweed jackets, I would seriously consider investing in one here. It'll last forever. Kevin and Howlin have been in business since 1936, stocking the finest Donegal handwoven tweed in Ireland. I did end up buying a merino wool check scarf similar to something Burberry would make for less than 30 euros.
