Dublin plays host to almost all of Ireland’s major sporting organisations – and was crowned the European Capital of Sport in 2010. Hurling and Gaelic Football are still played here regularly - and the city boasts top-class venues for numerous sports including boxing, swimming, horse racing and football. As you might expect from a capital city, there is a superb selection of Dublin sports shops to choose from - and we've listed many of them below.
Whilst the large shopping complexes such as Stephen's Green and Jervis Shopping Centre are home to some good stores like Champion Sports and Lifestyle Sports, it's well worth venturing a little futher afield and seeing what else Dublin has to offer the sports shopper. Both north and south of the river you will be able to find a great selection of specialist, independent Dublin sport shops covering all sporting interests.
