|Georges Street/Camden Street
Georges Street was the premier shopping street in Dublin in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, prior to the pedestrianisation of the Grafton Street area and its subsequent dominance of the upmarket end of shopping in Dublin. The area retains much of its old charm however in the slightly run-down building facades and is due for major renewal in the early years of the twenty first century to return it to its former glory.
Georges Street, or South Great Georges Street to give it its full title, is home to the wonderful Georges Street Arcade, a red-bricked indoor arcade of stalls and stores offering everything from exotic fruits and mediterranean produce to second hand clothes, memorabilia, fortune telling and body piercing! Behind the Arcade, leading to the back of the Powerscourt Townhouse is the Castlemarket area, with a myriad of clothes and shoe shops and several fine food shops and restaurants.
Outside, the street has a number of home furnishing shops, popular bars, music and art shops.
The street leads south to Camden Street, which features a daily outdoor food market and is packed with little food craft and gift shops. Camden Street is also a very popular nightlife focus with a large number of late bars and concert venues such as Whelans and The Mean Fiddler.
