Dublin voted 5th best shopping city

We're not the only ones who have a serious soft spot for Grafton Street it seems, as readers of Conde Nast Traveller have placed Dublin fifth in a list of the world's best shopping destinations.

Another favourite city of ours Barcelona topped the poll of twenty-four cities, only eight of which were in Europe.

Philadelphia, Hong Kong and Chicago closely follow the Spanish city in the rankings, taking the positions of second, third and fourth place respectively.

Most importantly though, Dublin reigned supreme ahead of all the obvious fashion haunts of New York, London and Paris.


With this newest Conde Nast nod, it won't be long before we find ourselves standing behind?Jourdan Dunn in the queue in Bewleys.
