6 Unique Shop Fronts of Dublin
Luca Truffarelli was recently commissioned by VisitDublin.com to capture the distinctiveness & personality of some of the capital’s independent shops.
Ranging in age and rich in history and character; each one of these businesses has its own unique story to tell. We chose seven of our favourite businesses from the original nineteen that were featured in the Visit Dublin photography project: Le Petit Parisien, Brother Hubbard, Christy’s Walk Around, Twisted Pepper, FX Buckley, Asian Food Co and J.P. Mullen Sports.
Provides a slice of Paris life and offers a warm corner of aromatic France in the heart of Dublin serving tasty French pastries and delicious coffee.
Owners Garrett Fitzgerald and James Boland baked their way around the world. They’ve soaked up the flavours from Lebanon to Turkey and Syria to Jordan which has influenced many of their dishes. Now, they specialise in scrumptious cakes, scones and hand-squeezed lemonade. All served up in a modern Design goat devised setting.
