A Dublin institution, Avoca is a wonderland of vivid colors, intricately woven fabrics, soft blankets, light woolen sweaters, children’s clothes, and toys, all in a delightful shopping environment spread over three floors near Trinity College. All the fabrics are woven in the Vale of Avoca in the Wicklow Mountains. The store also sells pottery, jewelry, vintage and antique clothing, food, and adorable little things you really don’t need, but can’t live without. Hands down, this is one of the best stores in Dublin. The top-floor cafe is a great place for lunch.
