If you like your clothing as up-to-date as it gets, Dublin’s many independent clothing stores are the way to go. This lively city has an array of one-off boutiques – both old and new – offering items that are contemporary, unique or both. Male or female, these are the Dublin clothes shops that should be on your radar. Did you know – Culture Trip now does bookable, small-group trips? Pick from authentic, immersive Epic Trips, compact and action-packed Mini Trips and sparkling, expansive Sailing Trips.

Indigo & Cloth

One for the boys, this Temple Bar men’s boutique is incredibly stylish. Their sparse upper level is full of well-made, contemporary menswear items by international brands like Schnaydermans – a shirtmaker out of Stockholm and New York – as well as pieces made closer to home, like bags and blanket coats by Galway’s own The Tweed Project. Footwear is also available here, by labels like Saturdays NYC, and they stock some gorgeous men’s grooming and skincare items.

Vintage-style clothing

Based in Dublin since 2001, the people behind the vintage-inspired Carousel boutique have become known for their high-quality, vibrant vintage-style clothing, even producing their own ethically made range called ‘Circus.’ This reputation has allowed them to add a well-stocked online shop to their repertoire, but fans of this spot still love to browse the rails inside the physical store, which is lovingly decorated, packed with pattern and a joy to visit. Designed to suit all body shapes, their feel-good items are definitely worth investing in.

& Other Stories

If independent boutiques aren’t really your thing, then you’ll be excited to hear about the impending arrival of another high-street giant to Grafton Street. Though it hasn’t even happened yet, the opening of trendy Swedish fashion brand & Other Stories in Dublin is already one of the year’s biggest retail events. Fashion bloggers flocked to social media to rejoice when the chain’s first Irish store was officially announced in February, and work on the space at 26-27 Grafton Street is now well underway. The outlet is due to open this Autumn, no doubt to a very warm reception.
