Shopfronts of Dublin: a very lovely photo project indeed

Independent stores, and the way they make you feel.

THE PROLIFERATION OF chain stores and franchise brands can make the average Irish town or city indistinguishable from each other.

A modest photographic project by Luca Truffarelli for VisitDublin.com captures the spirit of some of the capital’s independent businesses; shops, services, restaurants and bars that have carved out a niche for themselves in neighbourhoods around Dublin.

This is a small selection. Feel free to let us know if there are gorgeous shopfronts in a town or place near you too.
