Spinning rings

Irelands Best Shops

The Irish Times Best Shops in Ireland awards highlight independent retailers with inspiring stock, new ideas and friendly service.

We are thrilled to have been nominated and shortlisted to one of the best 100 shops in ‘The Specialist ‘ category.

We were recently on holidays in Doolin and came across your shop. We have a little boy who is 10 years old and has Autism. He is very interested in gemstones since his favourite cartoon at the moment is Steven Universe. We made two trips to your shop and each visit lasted a couple of hours. As you can imagine our son Adam was in heaven surrounded by gemstones and tons of info on each gemstone. The staff were so helpful and pleasant and attentive to him in his thirst for knowledge. Visiting your shop for him wasn’t just the usual shopping experience but was an opportunity for him to immerse himself in his current special interest. As soon as we left he asked me to nominate you for the above competition.
I see your shop has made the short list and I’m delighted. I know Adam will also be so pleased when I tell him.
Best of luck and thank you to your wonderful staff.
