You won’t want to miss the popular Mommy and Me classes. Gallery artists help you create a unique and kid-friendly craft that you can take home as a cherished memory.
Johnson's Real Ice Cream
This local favorite offers a wide variety of traditional and monthly specialty flavors. Be sure to ask about the Irish Sundae exclusively available at the Dublin shop!
A large part of the family business is the commitment they make to using only the finest ingredients made close to home while simultaneously sourcing dairy from locally-owned family farms. Enjoy cones, sundaes, scoops and shakes in store or on the patio in the heart of Historic Dublin.
