I was disappointed to find many of the stalls closed on the Tuesday we visited. The stall holders/shop keepers that were there were very friendly but there was nothing worth getting my purse out for.

I had some shopping in mind for Dublin and headed here first thing. It was a disappointment. Mostly cheap flea market kind of items. I did not find anything g worth stopping for.

Like some other reviewers, we found the shops relatively average rather than anything terribly special. If you are nearby or you are looking for inexpensive items, it is worthwhile. It's not huge, we walked through and bought a few things in 30 minutes or less.

After reading a few reviews from Tripadvisor on how cool and quirky this Street Arcade was, I was a bit disappointed once I was there. My boyfriend and I were there on a weekend afternoon in the summer time (peak tourist season!) but many stalls...More

I had walked past Nutty Delights in the George’s Street arcade but thankfully a voice in my head told me to double back to try a sample. The lady attending the stall, Wish (that’s her name), has a full selection of samples to try out...More

The name "George" is all over Ireland. Referring to what king? i.e. Great George's Street, Temple Bar, George's Street, Dun Laoghaire. I thought any George was anathema to the Irish.
