We are proud here at the Powerscourt Centre to partner with Centra in supporting the Irish Cancer Society for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, where we have unveiled a Pink Rose Installation on the ground floor.

The Installation was created using 3,100 roses, representing the number of people that would be told they have breast cancer this year.

If you stop by the wall, share a picture and use the hashtag #CentraScentsMakeSense, Centra will donate €1 for every pic to the Irish Cancer Society.

The inaugural Irish Independent Retail Awards 2018 welcomed over 150 guests at the Crowne Plaza Dublin Airport Hotel, on Monday 1st October, in a first attempt to reward Irish independent retailers for serving and enhancing our communities, which saw Chupi announced as the independent jewellery store of the year.

At the tender age of 21, Chupi Sweetman was scouted by Topshop from her first year in college as the youngest designer to ever work for the company. She went from a student to a serious designer overnight. However, after a six-year career in fast-fashion, Chupi wanted to create something that lasted forever and celebrated Ireland’s incredible design heritage, and so in April 2013 ‘Chupi’ the brand was born.

The team of 23 talented individuals ship the beautiful pieces to 64 countries around the world and have gone from an Irish startup to an internationally adored brand.

Irresistibly drawn to wild and natural things, Chupi’s designs are inspired by the imperfect natural beauty of feathers, twigs and leaves complemented by the sparkliest diamonds and gemstones. All of their precious jewellery is handmade with love in Ireland with ethical gold and conflict-free diamonds.

Just 2 years ago Chupi at Atrium opened on the top floor of the Powerscourt Centre.

The National Geographic published a neighbourhood guide to Dublin, where the Pepper Pot received one of the finest compliments for an eatery in Dublin. Clearly it has been a local favourite for years, as the same sandwich ranked number 10 on a list of Dublin’s Best Sandwiches.

The roasted pear and bacon sandwich which mixes sizzling Irish bacon with 15 Fields Cheddar, sweet slices of roast pear and mustardy mayo between two doorsteps of crusty white bread according to this article is the perfect start to a Dublin day as well as being described as ‘heaven’ – if you haven’t tried it yet, you are missing out!

DublinTown Fashion Festival 2018

The year is 1774 and Richard Wingfield 3rd Viscount Powerscourt and his wife Lady Amelia Wingfield have just moved into their beautiful townhouse at number 59 South William Street, Dublin.

On Wed 22nd, at 11am to celebrate @nationalheritageweek there will be a guided tour through the magnificent rooms of the Powerscourt Centre.

This grand tour will transport you back to the eighteenth century with this wonderful tour. Starting in the Kitchens and ending in the Ballroom you will catch a glimpse of what life was like in Georgian Dublin.

Powerscourt Centre is a speciality shopping centre set in an elegant Georgian house centrally located just off Grafton Street. Formally, 59 South William Street was home to Richard Wingfield 3rd Viscount Powerscourt (1730-1788) and his wife Lady Amelia, who bought the Townhouse to entertain guests during Parliament season.

Meeting place for the tour is on the steps at the South William Street entrance to Powerscourt Centre. After the tour is finished, relax with a meal from one of our restaurants while listening to the resident pianist play at 12pm.

Anyone looking to spot the next Jack B Yeats, Robert Ballagh, Maser or Conor Harrington should plan a visit to the Powerscourt Town Centre this August 10th to 31st where 15 budding Irish artists will have their paintings on display for all to enjoy. The young artists were all finalists in Sightsavers Ireland’s Junior Painter Awards.

Disability campaigner and little person Sinead Burke (aka Minnie Melange) and Laureate na nÓg and illustrator PJ Lynch were two of this year’s judges who had the difficult task of selecting winning paintings such as the mysterious and colourful ‘The Horizan Horeyesan’ featuring cartoon-like characters within a jigsaw puzzle; while ‘Climate Controller Station Bringing Fairness to all Nations’ is an intriguing and intelligent painting about the important world issue of climate change.

The young artists responded creatively to this year’s theme, ‘Put Us In The Picture’. 12-year-old Patricia Poprawa from Glenswilly National School, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal was announced the overall winner for her inspiring and thought-provoking creation ‘Draw me in…I’m waiting.’

Students from hundreds of primary schools across the country took part in the Junior Painter Awards which aims to inspire children to express their artistic talent and develop an appreciation of the importance and value of their own sight while considering kids in developing countries that haven’t been as lucky as them.

Number 59 South William Street was the Townhouse of Richard and Amelia Wingfield, Lord and Lady Powerscourt, in the Eighteenth Century. Their main residence was Powerscourt Estate in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow and Lord Powerscourt was a member of the House of Lords.

The Townhouse was used to host dinner parties and dances when Parliament was in session. Their guests were wowed by the beautiful stucco work on the ceilings and walls of the Staircase, the Dining Room and the Ballroom.

Lord Powerscourt did the Grand Tour and was inspired by French and Italian art so the Townhouse was filled with paintings and antiques. When Lord Powerscourt died the Townhouse was sold to the Irish Government who commissioned Francis Johnstone to add groups of buildings to be used as tax offices.

In the 1980s, almost 200 years after the Wingfields lived there, it was converted into Powerscourt Shopping Centre which was nominated for a European award. The Antique shops made the former tax offices their home and filled them with beautiful paintings, silver, china and jewellery. A case of history repeating itself! You might even discover a piece that once belonged to Lord and Lady Powerscourt!

The Image Boutique Awards were launched because Image wanted to acknowledge the exciting fashion, incredible service and beautiful spaces offered by stores across the country. It is very exciting to see independent Irish retailers celebrated in this way, and also by you, the boutique shoppers, in the support that was shown as more than 50,000 votes were cast.

The Design Centre was awarded Best Irish Label Offering, it is not hard to see why as  The Design Centre offers a unique mix of the best of Irish designer labels including Philip Treacy, Caroline Kilkenny, Roisin Linnane and Catriona Hanly. For the contemporary woman who loves simplicity and elegance, the Design Centre is the go-to destination in Dublin for those covetable timeless classics. Find The Design Centre on the Top Floor of the Powerscourt Centre.

Atrium was awarded Best Customer Experience and Best Boutique Owners, Chupi Sweetman and Kate Nolan are very happy with Best Owners award but it’s the award for Best Customer Experience that they are really delighted with because they have an amazing team of women working in the store and this award means that all their hard work shows and is appreciated by you!

So come in and see why these boutiques stand out to the public as some of the best boutiques in the country.
