Did you know that Aspect Hotel Park West lies close to three of Dublin’s biggest and best shopping centres? We think that makes us an ideal location for a weekend shopping spree saving you a trip to the overcrowded city centre shopping areas. We’ve put together some more information about these centres to help you make the most of your precious shopping time in Dublin.
The closest location to the Aspect Hotel for some quality retail therapy is the expansive Liffey Valley Shopping Centre just a five minute drive from us. The centre contains high-street favourites such as H&M and Zara as well as housing Ireland's newest Penneys (known as Primark for our UK visitors). This new Penneys is large and modern with its very own in-house coffee shop creating an exciting new shopping experience for visitors.
Liffey Valley is not only home to the finest high-street brands but also a great variety of restaurants, a world-class cinema and best of all ample free parking spots. The centre is open late every evening with a 9pm close time Wednesday through Friday so you have plenty of opportunity for a late evening shopping trip. You can follow a tiring day of shopping with a top-class dinner in exciting new restaurant, the Hudson Rooms. Try their Homemade Banoffee Pie; we promise you won’t be disappointed!
Think of Dundrum as Liffey Valleys' older and slightly more sophisticated sister. The variety of stores in Dundrum is more upscale than its counterpart but they also have a good scattering of your favourite brands such as Coast and M&S.
On the higher end of the scale, they offer Harvey Nichols, LK Bennett and Hugo Boss to name but a few. The centre has 170 tenants so a day of shopping here will be jam-packed. They also have an impressive cinema as well as the Rainforest Adventure Golf providing entertainment for any younger visitors. Dundrum also have a huge range of places to eat including everything from fast food to Global Cuisine. A great day out all-round.
Blanchardstown Shopping Centre is Ireland's largest shopping centre having been expanded for more retail space in 2004. It holds a whopping 180 retail units selling everything from clothes and fashion to homeware and groceries. As well as the usual suspects, Blanchardstown has department stores like Debenhams and BT2. They also have a fantastic 9-screen Odeon Cinema which has the option of premium seats and upgrading to an eye-popping 3D Imax experience.
