Boots

Boots Chemists have branches all over Dublin City including on Grafton Street, Henry Street, Baggot Street, and in the Jervis, Stephens Green and Ilac Shopping Centres.

There's a balance between own brand and outside brand products and their prices are favourable compared to some of their smaller competitors.

Carrying health and beauty products and electrical and photographic equipment, Boots is great for gift shopping and getting those oh-so-necessary bits and bobs. For everything from hairclips to tweezers to evening primrose oil to athletes' foot powder to sunblock cream to perfume and moisturisers, you'll easily find what you're looking for in Boots' trademark spacious, whitewashed, well-laid-out shops.

In terms of beauty products, some of the brands carried include Clarins, Lancôme, Clinique, Chanel, Estée Lauder, No. 7, Maybelline NY, Max Factor, Hugo Boss and Calvin Klein. Staff are on hand to give both beauty and healthcare advice. In terms of electrical goods, all kinds of hairdryers, shavers, electric toothbrushes and even massagers and toners are available. There's baby stuff too, from food to clothes to toiletries.

More and more branches have been popping up around the city in recent years totalling 16 in all.  Apart from the City Centre branches, there are Boots chemists throughout the Dublin suburbs, including the Blanchardstown Centre, Bloomfield Centre in Dun Laoghaire, Liffey Valley, Nutgrove Shopping Centre, the Pavillions in Swords and The Square in Tallaght.
