Hi…hope someone can help me quickly…I am leaving this Wed. 2/14/01 for Ireland…I would like to look for antiques, or go to a flea market if possible…we are staying in Athlone from the 15th through the 23rd, and will be in Dublin on the 17th…any possiblilties??? Thanks for any help you can give me.
There are many antique shops in Dublin, particularly on Frincis Street near ChristChurch Cathedral.
For Flea Markets: Dublin is not well known for having many of these but there are a few small ones. There is one in Rathmines called The Blackberry Market, its open at the weekend. Also, there used to be one near ChristChurch but Im not sure if it’s still there.
Try asking in a tourist office in Dublin, there is an excellent one off the bottom of Grafton St in and old church.
