Online Shopping: 9 Local Businesses to Support During Quarantine

If you’re like me and being good at staying at home, you may have also had the chance to declutter your room and your house. In turn, this makes more room for new pieces from fashion and jewellery – and during these tough times it’s important to support local businesses. Having worked for two years supporting such businesses, I’m sharing the love on the blog and hope you’ll join me!

Starla Boutique

A fashion boutique on the trendy South William Street, they’ve temporarily closed their doors but thankfully their online store still has plenty of fashion and accessory choices to choose from.

Weir & Sons

I’ve been a fan and customer of Weir & Sons for over two decades now, and deem this Irish family-run jewellers one of the best for gifts. From watches to necklaces, vintage to fashion brands, and that all-important engagement ring, you’ll find everything at online – plus they offer FREE shipping nationwide.


A long-running vintage style boutique, the fashion at Carousel is always fresh and ideal for the upcoming summer season.

Oliver Bonas

I really love this store, who offer gorgeous fashion and accessories, as well as homeware, books & stationary and more. The style is chic, fun and there are so many great colours to opt for too.

Magee 1866

I always believe in investement pieces, and Magee is always my go-to. Their tweed is one of the finest in the country, and as an Irish family-run business you just can’t go wrong. Their womenswear includes coats, blazers, skirts and trousers, as well as shirts & tops and accessories. They also offer 10% off for new customers!

Kennedy & McSharry

Having worked with local fashion boutiques, I had the pleasure of getting to know owners & brothers Neil and Tony McSharry of Kennedy & McSharry. Their menswear hat & accessories shop offers more than caps and trilbys, with neckties, bow ties, memorabilia rugby ties and scarves too.

Coco Boutique

I love when fashion meets my standards, and that is always the case at Coco Boutique. Though they’re temporarily closed, their online shop has so much choice from glam dresses to cosy knits and chic tops ideal for WFH and date nights via Zoom.

Om Diva

One of my favourite vintage style and funky stores has moved online to Depop, selling skirts, shirts, dresses and accessories.

The Collective

My favourite boutique for jewellery, The Collective has a beautiful collection of jewellery and homeware gifts too. Full of brilliant Irish designers, they also offer FREE shipping over €50.
