Argos is a catalogue-based retailer. You look up the catalogue, pick the items you want and then punch in the codes to see if they're currently in stock.

It'd be unusual if they didn't have whatever's in the catalogue there on site, especially in the bigger branches like Jervis Street and Stephens Green.

There are eight branches of Argos in Dublin. There are located in the Stephens Green Centre, the Jervis Street Centre, the Nutgrove Centre, the Ilac Centre, the Square in Tallaght, the Blanchardstown Centre, the Bloomfield Centre in Dun Laoghaire and the Pavilions in Swords.

The prices are highly competitive and you can get great bargains in everything from furniture to electrical equipment, from sporting goods to clothes and from toys to household utensils. There are great deals on cameras, computers, toys & games, jewellery and watches and DIY hardware.

Two editions of the catalogue are printed each year, Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter. Also there's the Additions catalogue specialising in fashion. Watch out though, this can get addictive, as once you start leafing through the catalogue, you might find yourself circling a little bit more than your groaning bank balance could withstand!
