Irish fashion boutiques to visit now that retail has finally reopened

As we head back to the shops for the first time in almost five months, here are nine Irish fashion boutiques to spend your hard-earned money in.

Owned by inspiring, stylish, hard-working women, below are just some of the independent retailers that need and deserve our support this year. Each one offers an incredible edit, superb customer service and a warm welcome. Spend your money where it matters.


A fashion hotspot in Killarney, MacBees stocks an exhaustive number of covetable brands, including Lala Berlin and Custommade.


Stocking only Irish or sustainable design pieces, this light-flooded space in Dublin’s Powerscourt Townhouse Centre is well worth a browse the next time you are in town.


Stocking all of the international labels I want in my wardrobe, including Victoria Beckham and Joseph, this Naas boutique defines destination shopping.


This is the most enchanting store you’ll ever enter and is stocked with the prettiest jewellery, most of which is designed by owner Margaret O’Rourke.


This fashion-forward South County Dublin boutique, curated by owner Grainne Wynne, has an aspirational offering of chic, contemporary clothes for women who desire something different.


The sole stockist of Simone Rocha in Ireland, Havana is a fashion obsessive’s fantasy.


Based in Maynooth, Co Kildare, Divine boutique has an affordable edit that spans shoes, clothing and accessories; something for everyone.


Limerick store Kimono won the 2018 IMAGE Boutique Award for best boutique outside Dublin, and for very good reason. Among its offerings is gorgeous luxury handbag label Tissa Fontaneda.


Another County Kildare favourite, Emporium Kalu is worth checking out for its Vivienne Westwood edit alone.
