Discover Rua, the cutest little lifestyle store this side of the Liffey!

Looking for individual products in a friendly atmosphere? Well search no more and get yourself down to Rua on Capel Street. This cute little “lifestyle store” prides itself on creating a relaxed atmosphere where one can browse unique products that range from handmade home ware to beautiful delicate jewellery.


Owners Cara and James believe their years of retail experience have given them a priceless knowledge of what their customers really want. Their passion for “lifestyle” retail is evident throughout their quirky store. This friendly couple have managed to create a beautiful space that offers customers the chance to purchase something that will not be found on the high street!


Rua is also the only Irish and European store in collaboration with esteemed New York based designer Thomas Paul. His artistic collection of household and fashion items are a great addition to the Capel street store.

Not keen on keeping their eye for individual designs a secret, Rua also holds “Chalk Paint” ¬†workshops, which shows you how to take a drab lifeless piece of furniture and transform it into an individual art work!

Rua is the only stockist in Dublin City Centre of Annie Sloan Chalk Paints. No need for sanding or priming, just open and you’re ready to go!
