9 Costume Shops in Dublin You'll Need If You're Stuck This Week

Because there's more than just that one beside The Gaiety


Halloween has quickly sprung upon us so quickly that we're rather unprepared... and we don't really know how we've let that happen AGAIN.

Cue frantic shopping, last-minute online costume ordering and attempting to squeeze into a costume from your teens to only realise you actually look terrifying... and not in a good way.

But, never fear! Dublin is filled with shops galore to fulfil your ensemble needs.

1. Fun Place Ltd, 52 South King Street

Yes, the one beside The Gaiety.

These guys go all out and at pretty reasonable prices, which is pretty rare for costume shops. Every costume category you could dream of... even Christmas themed, who knew?
