The Kilkenny Shop
The best in Irish design is showcased in this Nassau Street store, handily located between Trinity College and the National Museum on Kildare Street. The merchandise here clearly targets visitors to the city; it’s heavy on classic brands like Waterford crystal, Newbridge silverware, and Belleek pottery. But there are also more contemporary offerings, like the colorful, graphically printed shoulder bags from London-based Irish designer Orla Kiely. There’s a fine view of the Trinity College cricket pitch from the top-floor café.
