St. Kevin's Mart is the most quintessentially Dublin corner shop around

A true gem.

GOOD OLD-FASHIONED corner shops may be in short supply these days, but there are still a few gems knocking around Dublin.

Case in point? St. Kevin’s Mart, the most quintessentially Dublin shop of them all.

Situated on Upper Kevin Street, St. Kevin’s Mart looks like an ordinary newsagent from the outside

But peak inside and it becomes abundantly clear that it’s anything but…

Dog food for your gullible friends, anyone?

Seriously, where else would you get a €1.30 bottle of wine?

Thank you, St. Kevin’s Mart.

Bag of potatoes and Hunky Dorys? Move over, Donald Trump. These people have really mastered the art of the deal.

Honestly, their “buy one, get another free” are unrivaled.

Olive oil and spooky sweets? Don’t mind if I do.

This is why I love shopping locally #dublin8 #dublin

Happy Belated Millennium.

Two words: gravy refills.

Take a bow, St. Kevin’s Mart.

“Selfie: €10″

We’re not quite sure what this means, but we’re sure there’s a reasonable question.

Plus they have €1 coffees.
