This store was always a favorite of my Mom's, who grew up in Galway but immigrated to the U.S. when she was 18 yrs. old. My Mom is gone now but her kids have taken over the tradition of never visiting Galway without taking a drive out to Connemara to visit the Standun Family and their very unique & upscale... More

Whenever we are in Galway, we stop in. This time I saw a fantastic hand bag, I didn't buy it. However, after getting back to Canada, I contacted them with the description and they had it! We completed the transaction and truly, within the week, it was here. Such great service. I have since ordered a dress via the online... More

Another few days in Connemara which would not be complete without at least one visit to Standun. The staff and merchandise are superb.

while visiting from Canada, I went to Standun's with my brother, sister and sister-in-law. 3 of the 4 of us ended up making purchases. I was very happy with a navy dress and Jack Murphy Jacket which were under €45 each when VAT was deducted which the shop assistant did on the spot. There is a vast selection of goods... More

My daughter and I are living in the US where I am studying. I love Aran sweaters and like many people from East London, I have many Irish ancestors. We are looking forward to wearing our cardigans when we arrive in the Melbourne winter in July for the start of my new job. The cardigans arrived very quickly from Ireland... More

Taking an extended ride through Galway city, along Galway Bay, I found this most beautiful shop. Not only did it carry beautiful " made in Ireland" merchandise including sweaters, crystal, jewelry, pottery, and books, it also has boutique style clothing for men and women at very reasonable prices. While shopping, we were invited to take a break in the cafe... More

Standuns is the most Iriish shop in Ireland. The staff is most peasant and very helpful. I've been shopping there for over 30 years and am always looking forward to returning. The Standun family are just fabulous people. Everything they sell in the shop is first class and very Irish. Cliona, I'm sure that you parents and grandparents would be... More
