The Winners of the Best Shops Ireland 2023 - The Gloss Magazine

The Winners of the Best Shops Ireland 2023

We asked readers to vote for their absolute favourite shops from a shortlist in 13 categories, discover the winners below … 

When we joined forces with last year to find Ireland’s Best Shops, we couldn’t have imagined just how enthusiastically readers of THE GLOSS would support independent retailers all over the country. You nominated your favourite shops, shared shops you had discovered and brought our attention to lots of gorgeous ones we didn’t know about. We were bowled over by the style, creativity, wit, heart and soul of Irish shopkeepers. Last December we asked you to vote for your absolute favourites from a shortlist in 13 categories. ¬The “winners” are below. But remember, from the simple to the sophisticated, the charming to the cool, every single one of the 200 shops on our list at is a winner … Congratulations to all!
