Yes, the tour buses stop here, but at Standun we found real, high-quality Irish products at very reasonable prices. It seemed more like a small department store for locals than a "souvenir shop," and indeed, the young owner later told us she has tried to make it just that--a year-round business where folks come for birthday, wedding, and other family...

If you are going to Ireland you MUST visit Connemara and you MUST make a stop in the beautiful village of Spiddal. Walk on the beach, have a pint with the locals, drink in the sea air, feed the Connemara Ponies a carrot and then reward yourself with a visit to Standun's gift shop. The shop is a bit of... More

My husband and I had the privilege to vacation in Ireland this year. We were amazed with the scenery, the people, and the overall experience of Ireland. On the next to the last day of our vacation, we were on a tour in Connemara, and our bus stopped a lovely gift shop. It was amazing! Everything you could imagine and... More

Was passing while on holiday with my parents and required a coffee and a break, well we got a shock as it was a real haven. The refreshments were first class and then of course we had a browse through the shop which was superb and resulting in quite a few purchases. A few days later as our holiday was... More

I brought my American friends to Standun’s last month and was really impressed by the quality and great selection of clothing and gifts. I always thought this store was expensive and only for tourists, but that’s far from the truth. My friends bought lots of sweaters and Waterford crystal and posted it all home for free. The prices are much... More

We heard about this place through our tour guide as it was supposed to be the original home of the Aran Sweater. Located outside Galway City it was the perfect store to buy our Aran Sweaters as not only did they have a huge selection but they were cheaper then many other city stores! Staff friendly and helpful too.. We... More

As part of our tour we had the opportunity to stop north of Galway at this unassuming looking shop. It was fun! First we had a presentation of the history of not only the store, the founder but also Irish woolens. The differences of wool and the patterns. I hope at least some of this was true. :=). There are... More

Oh my goodness! This was the mecca of stores. We spent almost 2 hours looking at all the goodies. It had everything I was looking to buy. I wanted a teapot and found just the right one along with the sugar bowl and cream pitcher. I found some beautiful Irish crystal wine glasses that were on sale. We bought lots... More
