Irish Based Art & Design Shop Directory
I’m a lover of art and design as you should know from reading The Life of Stuff, so I decided to put together this ‘Art & Design Shop” directory. It’s to show my support for the Irish based Art and Design Shops I shop from and those I admire.
Many of the stores listed exclusively sell works by Irish Artists and Designers and can be visited in person or shopped from online. Others curate their stores with art/design led pieces they’ve sourced internationally and sell exclusively online. They all however are based in Ireland, and to my knowledge are Irish owned.
This directory is for you to utilise should you wish to shop for a special person or for yourself, whether it be for a birthday celebration, Christmas present, or a gift for no reason at all.
Of course I’m learning as I grow so if you feel a shop you love should be added to this directory, please let me know (there’s a chance I’ve overlooked a store, or perhaps you’ll introduce me to a new one to covet) – you can use the comment section below to keep me up to date.
Shop local, support the arts, love design and enjoy!
