What and Who is The Guinness Gallery?
Now in its 21st year and endorsed by The Crafts Council of Ireland for its showcasing of Irish design, the Gallery has come a long way since Elisabeth, glass collector and former art dealer, opened it in 1993. Its initial emphasis was on promoting young Irish artists and contemporary European art glass. However, over time, the addition of a wide range of affordable jewellery, fashion accessories and unusual giftware have enhanced its reputation as the first place to visit for something special, interesting and different.
The following are a few comments from customers who nominated us as one of the ‘Best Shops in Ireland’ –
‘the Gallery is a wonderful cornucopia of paintings, jewellery and design led craft in a wide price range’ ‘whenever I feel low, calling in to the Gallery raises my spirits’. Another commented ‘I always know that the friendly staff will go the extra mile to help me find the right gift.’
The team who make up the Gallery are Elisabeth, buyer and bookkeeper, Jane, who takes over when Elisabeth is sourcing work in France and elsewhere, and Rosie, Terry and Yvonne who man the shop on different days and channel customer requests.
