St. Patrick’s Street is the main thoroughfare with famous name stores interspersed with distinctly local shops. At regular intervals along the street are small lanes many of which offer a shopping adventure.

Merchants Quay Shopping Centre contains a treasure trove of shopping options and is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the region. Further along is Roches and Dunnes Stores — two famous names in Irish retailing. Specialising in Irish handcraft jewellery is Mahony's, located in the shopping centre.

Quills Woollen Market offers the latest and traditional fashions in knits and woollens. For a ‘new you’, Goodbodies in the Savoy Centre provide natural skincare treatment and products. Notable fashion houses include Moderne for leading female fashions, Warehouse and Vero Moda. The Dressing Room in Emmett Place carries many of the top class fashion labels. Mens styles are well catered for in Fitzgeralds, Mannix & Culhane and Gentlemans Quarters — all worthy of inspection. A good choice of celtic jewellery is available at Michel and Philip Burkley and for traditional Irish knitwear Erin Country Knitwear has been manufacturing quality aran handknits since 1964. Their three shops at Blarney, Kenmare and Sneem are also stockists of exclusive knitwear and sweaters.
