The Kilkenny shop, has the crystal gifts, the statues, slightly more expensive, but nice gifts, that tourists and locals can buy for... More

Such wonderful shopping here. And it's all authentic and local! You can spend a lot or little, there is so much to choose from. Do not go to any other "tourist" shop...this is the one to visit!

Nice shop that has currently lots of lovely Christmassy bits in! Not badly priced if a little on the expensive side. Couldn't buy much as only had hand luggage. Cafe upstairs was buzzing with a live band on a Sunday afternoon. All things Irish from sweet treats to jewelry and glassware. Some good artists work in there too. Would return... More

The shop is the real McCoy with all genuine Irish designs and great food upstairs in the cafe & restaurant. Had a birthday lunch which was simply superb with genuine Irish customer service. This shop deserves its various awards for great cuisine and merchandising and would recommend it to anybody.
