The biggest shopping malls in Ireland

Ireland is not generally seen as a shopping destination, but although it is better known for its historical, cultural or natural attractions, shopping enthusiasts will find a lot to occupy their times as well. If you are looking for some good shopping malls where you can find anything from brand fashion shops to souvenirs and restaurants, then you won’t have any trouble finding some good ones. For a good shopping session during your holiday, here are the biggest shopping malls in Ireland.

Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin

Dundrum Town Centre is the biggest shopping mall in Ireland – it has 80,000 square meters of floors space, several thousand parking spaces and over 160 shops. This makes Dundrum one of the largest shopping malls located in any European capital. Usually, the shops stay open until 9 PM on weekdays and 7 PM on weekends but restaurants, cinemas and supermarkets stay open until much later.

Crescent Shopping Centre, Limerick

Crescent Shopping Centre is the largest shopping center in Munster, and also one of the oldest malls in Ireland. Originally, it was opened in the 70s, but it has gone through extensive changes over the years and today it is a modern and stylish center. The shopping center has no less than four separate malls: City Mall, Dooradoyle Mall, Garryowen Mall and Shannon Mall.

Letterkenny Shopping Centre, Letterkenny

Letterkenny Shopping Centre is the largest shopping center in Donegal, and one of the first to be opened in the area. Although the center was outside the town when it was built, due to the expansion of Letterkenny, it is now located within the town proper. There are around 40 retail shops in the shopping center, as well as restaurants, fast-foods and cinemas.

Whitewater Shopping Center, Newbridge

Whitewater Shopping Center is the largest shopping center in Ireland outside of Dublin, and somewhat of a shopper’s paradise, especially if you are interested in buying clothing. There are three megastores in the center: Debenhams, Marks and Spencer’s and H&M, plus another 60 retail stores that carry world famous brands. There’s a sizable food court in the mall, as well as several good restaurants.

Bow Street Mall, Lisburn

Lisburn is not a large town, but it has a disproportionately large shopping mall located on Bow Street. The shopping center has over 70 stores and 14 restaurants, cafes and an array of high street shopping options. The two levels of Bow Street Mall are filled with everything a shopper could want, from brands to souvenirs, book shops and various specialty stores.
