Not very easy to see from George Street or Dame Street – this market introduced me to a number of shops and nice snack places – within a tiny path surrounded by old red walls.
In this market I found all I could need for any amount of money – from € 5 for a pair of casual earrings to several hundreds for some designer one off pieces. I could not resist and bought very nice “cat” earrings that I have fallen in love with.
The first shopping part is done! What is next? I got a nice freshly squeezed kiwi and mango juice in one of the shops – delicious! Even if I was not looking for anything in particular, the friendly staff of the market did their best to allocate my money in the right place: At the end of this little shopping tour I came home – in addition to my earrings – with a t-shirt, a dress and a little picture of Irish landscape bought in one of the galleries.
After the shopping day – as recommended by a friend – I enjoyed a drink in the Market Bar which is located in a big hall on the side of the market and also offers some good tapas. I would visit during the week since on Friday from noon and on weekends it can get extremely crowded. Surprisingly casual experience in the middle of the busy city!
