South City Market or George’s Street Arcade, as it is more commonly known today, was founded in 1876 and was Dublin’s first and only purpose built Victorian Shopping Centre. Tragedy was to befall South City Market on August 27th 1892 when the massive city fire of that date devastated the whole building. In 1984, the centre was re-built in the same style, using local labour and craftsmen, and was re-opened on September 13th of that year. Today South City Market has never been in a healthier state. There are approximately fifty tenants varying in size from small sidewalk stalls, selling everything imaginable from Fashion and Accessories to Trendy Funky Gear, from Custom Designed Solid Silver to Costume Jewellery, from Sophisticated Hair Styling to Fortune Telling, from Fine Wine to Coffee. Lovers of Music, Art, Books, Speciality Ornaments, Memorabilia, Stamps & Coin Collections, Cafés, Speciality Foods are all catered for.

Fantastic spot to wander around for a little while if you've got half an hour to kill in the city centre. Unfortunately, you probably won't get much more than half an hour out of this spot, unless you're really into your bohemian chic.
There are costume stores, lots of places to buy vinyl records, a stall where you can buy all the old sweets you remember from the 80s and 90s (and that alone is probably worth the trip), as well as one slightly odd stall selling a ton of Hello Kitty Merchandise and one dodgy-looking "psychic" (as if they all aren't dodgy). Still though, the weird mix of stuff means you're almost certain to find something you'll like!

George's Street Arcade is one of the must-see spots in Dublin, just for the weird, eclectic mix of stuff that's in there. It's what would happen if you dropped Temple Bar into a trash compactor, really. Packed full of tiny stalls that will sell you art, eastern knick-knacks, cupcakes, sweets from your youth, t-shirts, hats, old coins and anything else under the sun, this place is the bees knees.
