DublinTown is the fashion hub of Ireland and more recently Europe and it is easy to see why with so many unique boutiques to choose from. You are sure to find something to help express your own personal style in one of the city’s amazing boutiques, no matter what your budget or style is!

Om Diva

This fantastic and well established unique boutique started off as just a small quirky stall in George’s Street Arcade. Over the years Om Diva has transformed into one of the most adored boutiques in DublinTown. Owner and director Ruth Ni Loinsigh turned her dream into a reality and created a boutique Paradise for women. The boutique caters to a wide range of styles, from vintage and retro to the more subdued classics. The store also houses a dedicated showroom for Irish-based designers providing a forum for talented young designers where they can design, sell and develop their brand under one roof. Atelier 27 is funded and supported by DCEB.

Om Diva is everything a boutique should be with approachable and friendly staff along with inspired clothing and accessories. You will find Om Diva packed inside a stylish and electric building located in the heart of the Creative Quarter on Dury Street.


Retro Shop

Retro Shop is a hidden gem in the George’s St Arcade, and has been open for nearly 25 years. The idea stemmed from the lack of vintage pieces on offer in DublinTown, as well as the difficulty in finding sizes. At Retro, customers can find sized pieces for men and woman that go from a size 8 to an 18. This unique boutique specialise in the reproduction of vintage dresses from the 1940’s and 50’s, all cut from original patterns. Retro combine this with contemporary materials, giving you a fabulously flattering outfit which has comfort and style to boot.



Starla stock a wide range of dresses for all occasions. You can purchase or rent these dresses, so weather you want a dress you can reinvent over and over again or a once off show stopper, Starla is the place to go. Starla dresses offer a range of designers at a range of prices and styles, so pop into them on South William Street and you won’t be disappointed.
