Irelands No.1 Adult Boutique

Established in 1990 in the culturalcapital of Dublin, Temple Bar

Basic Instincts, established in 1990, is situated in the cultural capital of Dublin, known as Temple Bar. No 8 Eustace Street is a Georgian building, built in 1720 and now completely restored to its former glory. This award winning restoration was over a 4 year period.  We classify our store as a Mask, Fetish & Adult Shop specialising from genuine Venetian Masks to all kinds of ‘Fetishes’ for the modern discerning adult.

We source handmade masks from “Craftsmen” all over Europe.  Some of our suppliers date back over 300 years and still manufacture with high precision, their “art” craft handed down from generation to generation.  


If you are planning a Masquerade party, Wedding, Halloween night, Fetish ball or simply want a decorative wall mount, you’ve come to the right place. We are open 7 days a week to cater for our clients or you can shop on line using our very successful secure web site. Should you have an enquiry do contact us anytime as our specialist staff are only too happy to advise and help out.  Should you require something that’s not on our web site, please contact us as we will most likely be able to help with your request.
