17 things anyone who has shopped in Dundrum will understand

It’s a special place.

1. That smell

2. The hopeful, optimistic parking machines

3. The fact that there is a definite Dundrum Uniform

4. Even on the shelves

5. And skin colour is merely a concept

6. Things happen there which wouldn’t happen anywhere else

7. And we’re not just talking about the crisis-level lack of Boyfriend Chairs

8. Or the fact that you’re more likely than not to bump into a current or former member of the Irish rugby team

Maybe it’s their official residence for tax purposes or something?

9. I mean, even the jacks give you life tips

10. And the cinema sells ‘designer’ 3D glasses

Allegedly for €30.

11. Plus has an employee who looks so much like Gaz from Geordie Shore, he’s essentially become a meme

12. When it comes to the food offering… well, in Dundrum there are no rules

13. Even the lasagne has notions


14. It’s probably the only place in Ireland where the food literally gets angry

15. A bit like those Zen parking machines we talked about earlier

16. But in fairness, it IS home to the world’s most useful lift

17. And the world’s most aspirational teeth whitening clinic

17. At the end of the day, Dundrum is a place where magic happens

Long live Dundrum.
