“A hub for style in the City, The Design House is Ireland’s fashion Mecca.”

Is based in a fabulous Georgian building which offers a unique and creative shopping experience which is comprised of 3 floors of retail in a variety of themed areas. We offer cutting edge fashion, jewellery, bridal, vintage and a variety of crafts all in the one building. The hallways of our building also host an artist’s gallery. The list of designers who call “The Design house” home has grown steadily since we opened the doors. We are now the retailing home of over 50 Irish designers, 60 craft designers and 16 artists. We are also the creative home to several in-house designers, that work from our 2 floors of shared studio space and professional fashion workrooms which are manned by our in-house seamstress.

The concept behind our enterprise is to bring designers, craftspeople and artists together under one roof and to offer the customer a wide array of high quality products, all at varied price points & services such as our bespoke service and café.
We also offer designers, craftspeople and artists affordable rental of retail space to sell from and/or studio/office space with use of fully equipped fashion work rooms to work from and /or consultation space to meet with clients. We also offer fashion services such as sewing, pattern drafting & cutting, along with the opportunity to either teach or attend some of the fashion/business classes which we run.
Having a situation where retail with studio spaces & sewing rooms are all available in one building alone is vastly different to any other collective out there and what makes the Design House so innovative. When you add in the bespoke services, classes and café this makes the Design house a very formidable retail prospect and completely unlike anything else in Ireland.
The relaxed atmosphere we have created at the Design House along with the inclusive attitude and collective approach is what makes the Design House so unique and standout in the industry. The Design House is not just limited to arts, crafts, jewellery and fashion, recently we have rented out studio space to Graphic Designers, Web Designers, Journalists & Stylists. The idea is that we can draw on their experience in their given field should we need to and indeed we have several times.
