Ireland’s answer to Barneys New York, run by the Weston family (who also own London’s Selfridges), Brown Thomas is a serious shopper’s temple. The beauty of having a store like BT’s in a smaller city like Dublin is that many of the season’s most coveted items that sell out immediately in London or Paris are often still available here. The buying team does an incredible job filling out each floor—more casual attire and lingerie upstairs and premium designers and shoes downstairs—with beautiful pieces by Sandro, Carven, Stella McCartney, and Chanel in a way that feels incredibly thoughtful. All marble and hardwood floors with plush dressing rooms, the store is a pleasure to shop. The very top floor is a mecca of kitchen tools, china, and every implement under the sun, plus a good restaurant to fill the tank.
