Irish Goods, Dublin: 19 reviews and 14 photos

 
 

Whever you go in the world the dreaded plague of Souvenirs raises it's ugly head. They all seem to be made in China anyway. I often wonder what a Chinese worker in some fleapit factory thinks about producing thousands of damned plastic lepichauns. Why do people by this crap anyway?

The worst excesses of a 'disneyfied idea of Ireland' or fake 'Oirishness' can be found in the chain of Carrolls Irish gift shops. Their list of establishments are listed below :

Upper and Lower O'Connell street
Talbot Street
Henry Street
Wesmoreland Street
St Stephen's green shopping centre
Suffolk Street.

PS they do sell some Guinness emblazoned clothing and other more sensible stuff as well.
