    US-ask for a horizon card or you won’t get a vat tax refund
    This place is nice and they have a huge selection. They give you HORIZON vat tax refund forms and you need a HORIZON card from this store, in order to get a refund at the store. If you don’t get a horizon card, you will NOT be able to get a vat tax refund at the airport.

    Fantastic
    This was by far the best place in Ireland to buy all your woolen goods. They had the best prices, things I got here I would later see in other stores for much higher prices. This place was fantastic, I'll be flying back just to shop here again.

    Reasonably priced woolen goods
    This is a store. It sells things. If you need things then you can buy them here. Clothes, accessories, and home goods. Skip the price gouging and buy your woolen goods here. If you spend over a certain amount, the store will ship things to your home free. Handy for international travelers.

    Shoppers delight
    This multi level mega store is a shoppers dream. But truthfully it is full of high quality items with reasonable prices. They do also have the usual Irish souvenirs and Guinness merchandise. There is a cafe attached, it’s an impressive place and worth a look see.

    Beatiful sweaters
    Best place to buy Irish sweaters. Loved the store in the old mill. Very close to Blarney Castle. Very large selection of sweaters, hats, scarves, gloves, socks and other related things. Got our order shipped for free and it arrived within 2 weeks of our arrival home.

    Shopping w Lunch
    Selection was excellent and the staff in each section we visited were friendly. Found casual and work attire. We tried the pub restaurant on the other side of the lobby and found our Guinness and fish fry. Sorry didn’t write the name down so I might be spelling it wrong. Bice the name was Christy’s. The staff there were attentive and friendly too.

Took a friend to the cafe for lunch. I got a hot wrap which was ok but only had half the ingredients I asked for and was cold by the time i got it. We asked for lasagne at the hot food counter, I asked ifi could have chips and the man said no it had to be potatoes and veg. My friend went for the potatoes and veg which was one dry full potatoes a spoon of mashed carrot and 2 florets of brocoli and cauliflower. Really miserable portions for the price. Why I couldn't have had salad and chips I will never understand considering they have an entire salad counter and serve fish and chips.

Terrible online customer service and misleading Black Friday messaging.

I was met with a really rude e-commerce manager on Friday via the online chat.

Secondly the gift card system is so bad you can’t use store gift cards online - this is a very dated and frankly not user friendly !

To top this terrible experience off the Black Friday messaging was misleading and what I went into store to buy was more expensive than online.

Not once did it state ‘Black Friday online only,’!

Not only did I NOT get the Black Friday experience I was made to drive to a store as the online shop which btw is terrible to use, would not except my 40th birthday gift card to be greeted by no Black Friday.

For a very expensive store you need to up your online experience and train your staff better in customer service.

This restaurant has top service by Kathleen and food prepared by Chef Barbara. We can't recommend this restaurant enough. Stop by for food and a pint you won't regret it!

Prices are higher than we found elsewhere, and good luck finding someone to help you, but the selection is good. Note that "free shipping" includes a mandatory 10% "insurance fee," although it allows you to skip the VAT refund at the airport.
