Reviews Bow at the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre!
Tucked away in a corner on the ground floor of the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, Bow is one of my favourite places. It’s full of personality, and I always get distracted by the beautiful clothes, vintage finds and unusual and desirable pieces of jewellery.

The Manchester Evening News recently ran a Weekend supplement highlighting the best places to visit in Dublin – delighted to say that Powerscourt Townhouse was a must visit!
“One of my favourite parts of the trip was a wander round Powerscourt Townhouse, a quirky shopping emporium where old meets new. Housed in an 18th Century lord’s party-pad, with additional extensions set around a courtyard, it houses a variety of independent retailers offering antiques, homewares, ribbons, and contemporary and vintage clothing.”
The Dollstore, Hospital & Museum has arrived at the Powersourt Centre. The shop which is one of Dublin’s oldest institutions, loved by young and old has been given a fantasial space in the Ballroom,(formally the Soloman Gallery) where it will house with care and pride, a precious Museum of Childhood Dolls & Teddy bears.
