In the case of Starbucks dominating a place – take a trip down to Baggott St where there are two Insomnias practically opposite each other. This isn’t Chicago or San Fran! I would be challenged to find a part of the city centre not graced with an OBriens. It’s totally hypocritical (and very Irish!) to get all upset over the arrival of Starbucks when infact we’ve done quite a good job creating our very own version. I’m not even going near Spar-bucks.
I have no doubt that when they open their outlet on 1 College Green it will be tastefully done from the outside and not as abrasive as it’s convenience oriented neighbour.
What irritates me is the how clichÃ©d it is: of all the places Starbucks could locate in Dublin…
