Our New Spot – Kilkenny

We are so excited here at artysmarty to call Kilkenny our new haunt!  Kilkenny is currently celebrating its fiftieth anniversary of being one of the lifelines for Irish Craft and artist.  Under the reign of sisters Marian O’Gorman and Bernadette Kelleher the sophisticated shops pride itself on stocking only the highest quality products.


Kilkenny’s history and great reputation with Irish and international markets has resulted in a priceless knowledge of the Irish craft and design industry.  Although Kilkenny stocks mostly Irish goods, they also stock a small range of international brands, so there’s something for everyone!

Our favorites are the beautiful stamped pottery of Nicholas Moss, we’ve been know to step out in the dresses of Caroline Kilkenny  and the stylish jewellery pieces of Maureen Lynch.


There are over eighty designers that supply the Kilkenny stores offering a something totally different from the high street stores, for instance renowned designers such as the designers Orla Kiely, Alan Ardiff, Saba (Geraldine Murphy) and Irish interior design brand Klickity can be bought at any of their eleven stores.


With stores situated in most corners of Ireland, from Dublin to Galway and Cork to Kildare, there’s sure to be one near you!  Check out their Dublin city center store at:  

6-15 Nassau Street Dublin 2
