Dollard & Co

Dublin, Ireland

A greengrocer, deli, restaurant and wine bar, Dollard & Co is high-end foodshoping done right. Set on the ground floor of the historic Dollard Printing House, the building itself is the oldest steel frame structure in Ireland dating back to 1886, it’s likely you could waste an hour weaving through it’s shelves. An ideal place to buy food souvenirs: artisan breads, brown-bread crackers from the local cheesemonger, and fresh, hand rolled pasta

The Lilliput Press

Dublin is flush with bookshops. For sheer scale, try the sprawling Chapters. For zines, journals and a chance to run into the bespectacled staff behind the Dublin Review of Books, you’ll want to head to Books Upstairs. Following the ink-stained footsteps of Leopold Bloom or the difficult duo from Conversation with Friends? Head to the distinguished shelves of the four-floored Hodges Figgis. Our favourite, though, is The Lilliput Press, a bookshop run by one of Ireland’s oldest independent publishers. Head here for wonky shelves packed with historical non-fiction and Emerald Isle memoirs, plus a petting session with grizzled greyhound Phoebe, who you’ll find patrolling the shop floor.
