Ireland’s original department store, Arnott’s first opened its illustrious doors in 1843. Its selection of womenswear, menswear, gifts, and beauty products is enormous. Weary shoppers will also be delighted to find a branch of that most famous of Dublin coffee houses, Bewley’s, next to the Abbey Street entrance on the lower ground floor. Arnott’s stays open for late shopping until 9pm on Thursdays and 8pm on Fridays.
