Firmly established as a much-loved brand, we are one of Ireland’s leading department store retailers. Every month sees over half a million customer visits to our 16 stores. They come for our high-quality clothing, accessories, footwear, beauty and home products. And they come for the exceptional service and knowledge provided by the almost 1,000 people employed in our business. Many of our loyal customers have grown up with Shaws being at the heart of their shopping experience.

We operate close to 300,000 square feet of retail space in prominent high street and shopping centre locations and seek to keep abreast of changing retail trends while maintaining our reputation for quality and service.

Henry Shaw founded Shaws in 1864, when he opened a small drapery store in Mountmellick, Co. Laois.  Today, the company remains family-owned and the current Managing Director, Jonathan Shaw, is among the fourth generation of the Shaw family to work in the business.

The Tralee store was opened in 1997.
