Shopping in Dublin can be hectic. Thousands of people, tiny winding streets and what seems like 4,000 screaming children all attempting to head in the same direction.
But, it doesn't have to be...
We've been piling together a collection of tips and tricks based around the idea of making your shopping excursions easier - and we are hellbent on sharing it with you guys.
Are you listening? Because we're not going to say this twice...
1. Never, ever doubt Penneys
Ireland's most loved superstore where you can kit yourself out with everything from socks to wall hangings for less than a fiver.
Head along to the most iconic one on Dublin 1's Mary Street by taking the Luas to Abbey Street, or Jervis Stops on the Red Line. It might be a busy part of town but there are trams every three to six minutes at peak times so you won't be waiting long!
And you'll find everything you want there. Promise.
2. Buy your fruit and vegetables from the Moore Street markets
Better deals you will not find.
Take the Luas Red Line to the Jervis Street stop and it's just a five-minute walk. The Luas kicks off at 5:30am too - so you can get in there to pick up the freshest of the fresh!
3. Need to buy for lots of people? The Square's your only bet
With 130 shops providing everything and anything you could actually want - The Square is easy to get around, full of variety and even boasts a huge array of food stands for when you get peckish.
Easiest way to get there is get the Red Line Luas to Tallaght, and walk a mere two minutes. Coming from outside the city? No worries, just use the Park & Ride!
4. Huge queue at the AIB ATM on Grafton Street?
Use the one inside the door. No one knows it exists!
5. The Flower Vendors on Grafton Street boast the best selection
...and whopper deals.
Tailor your bunch to your exact tastes and get them for a reasonable price right here. Get there by taking the 'ol reliable Green Line Luas to Saint Stephen's Green and just skip two minutes down the road.
Trust us, it's worth it.
6. Girly day out? Head to Dundrum
Why not make a day of it and spend a whole afternoon at Dublin's largest shopping centre? With every shop imaginable, gorgeous restaurants, massive cinemas and even the odd pop-up to keep things interesting - Dundrum Town Centre really has it all.
Head there by taking the Green Line Luas to Balally and walking six minutes. The Luas finishes running at 12:30am (Mon- Sat) so you don't even have to miss the end of the movie. Just make sure to top up your Leap Card so you don't have to worry about change!
7. And finally, if it's nice outside, head to Henry Street
The infrequent fair weather day in Dublin must be celebrated, and what better way to do so than bargain hunting in the sales? Henry Street is a shoppers' paradise and you're sure to find some serious deals.
Simply a one minute walk from either Jervis or Abbey Street Luas Stops on the Luas Red Line - it couldn't be easier.
And, we haven't even mentioned Gino's yet...
So, what are you waiting for?
There's shopping to be had...
