How is diggin for records in Dublin? Will I find any old soul or jazz? I only came across one recordstore so far and it was just new stuff. There must be more out there.And besides records is there anything else you can recommend that I should check out while I'm here?


  • It's been awhile since I've been there, but I remember a few cool shops (tho some very rather pricey). Great city though, I have fond memories of Dublin. I did just find this info online, hopefully it'll help you on your way.

    Freebird Records
    5 Cope Street,
    Temple Bar,
    Dublin 2
    Tel: number pending (just relocated)

    (New/2nd Hand - CDs & concert tickets ground floor, vinyl upstairs)
    - just relocated from near O'Connell Bridge to Temple Bar (where Comet Records used to be). Stocks all music styles. Excellent for hip-hop, plus a good selection of funk/soul and reggae re-issues. Also good for house and techno.

    All City and Road are the only two spots you will turn up some good second hand joints.

    In terms of things to do. Check out the Guinness Storehouse. And myself deejaying with Florian Keller in a club called Ri Ra on Friday (16th) night.More info here: http://www.choicecutsonline.com/
