This shop has a great variety of clothes, books and homewares on sale. Tourists will be sure of getting some lovely items made in Ireland here. It's a very pleasant place to browse around and you and will probably be lucky enough to hear people conversing in Irish as this shop is in the Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) area of Connemara... More

This shopping destination has many choices for souvenirs, jewelry and clothing. There are beautiful silver pieces as well as Connemara marble items. The sweater area even has wool kits for sale so you can knit your own Aran sweater. Coffee shop was very good, staff friendly. We enjoyed the lattes, pastries and cookies we got there.

You can get clothing, home ware, gifts and fancy stationary while smelling the coffee and eyeing up the cakes and cookies. Well worth a visit.

Had a wide range and variety of knits, scarfs, blankets, jewelry, and lots of other miscellaneous items. Bought several gifts and plan on returning tomorrow for things we wanted but didn't get. Very reasonable prices and the option to ship is awesome. They even looked in the back for more items that they only had one of to make sure... More

After shopping in this shop which was a pleasant experience, I went into the tearoom for a snack and a coffee. After waiting at the counter for an assistant to come and serve me, I was just about to give up and walk away when a Manager who was working on one of the café tables got up and told... More

If you plan to shop in the EU and Ireland is part thereof, you need a VAT card for tax free shipping. Not a full refund but a good amount and generally you get the refund immediately and not have to wait to get back after you return home. You just need to make sure you stop at the airport... More

Spiddal is a little seacoast town a bit west of Galway that would relatively unremarkable but for one fantastic retail outlet: Standun. Sort of a scaled-down department store, you'll find excellent quality stuff here. Standun specializes in wool clothing made from sheep raised on the Aran Islands, but you'll also find jewelry, waterford crystal, balleek china and all sorts of... More
