About Us

At the Award Winning IRISH DESIGN GALLERY you will find treasures designed and handmade in Ireland, well actually… most within Leinster or event a 50 mile radius of Dún Laoghaire, Co Dublin! Sinéad Buckley Quinn, Gallery Proprietor, created this unique business model to showcase local artists, designers and makers giving them the opportunity to meet their customers and to sell to these customers in the gallery while still having time to produce their wonderful creations back in their studios.

We work closely with leading Irish designers to create a constant flow of new products which reflect customer requirements & budgets and market trends. We have always maintained a high level of service to our valued customers. Our passionate goal has always been to deliver consistent excellent product and customer service to the retail sector.  We were Runner Up (Best Start Up Business) in the DLR Chamber Business Awards 2017 ! We opened The Irish Design Gallery in DúnLaoghaire in March 2016, in the very historic “Moran Park House”, a listed 158 year old building, of which we are proud to be the custodians.  This building is owned by the Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and was renovated in 2015 as part of the Metals Rejuvenation Project, along with the magnificant DLR LexIcon Library. In early 2016 we won the Public Tender to run the gallery and the studios in Moran Park House beside the newly built LexIcon Library on the seafront in Dún Laoghaire and so in March 2016 we opened the doors to reveal The Irish Design Gallery.

Sinéad, along with the crew of designers look forward to welcoming you to the gallery to browse and breath in the energy from all the creations!  Normally open 7 days a week throughout the year (11am to 5pm)!
NEW opening hours from June 11th 2020 – Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 11am – 5pm with alternative hours if pre-arranged by emailing sinead@irishdesigngallery.ie

We curate new designers’ work every few months giving opportunities to a broader range of designers, artists and photographers; many of whom are members of the Design Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI).  We also have regular events such as Art Exhibitions, Fashion Shows and Wedding Showcases. If you wish to apply for your work to be showcased please contact us by email info@irishdesigngallery.ie

Sustainable Retailing

Opening Hours 7 days a week 11:00am to 5:00 pm

Dogs Allowed

Yes – we are a dog friendly shop. I wouldn’t like my dogs tied up outside so you needn’t tie up yours! Bring them in (just no big dogs with fabulous waggy tails to knock over things!!)

Wheelchairs & Baby Buggies

Yes – we are also wheelchair and baby buggy friendly. Our entire shop is on the flat and we have left enough room between areas to move around – we hope! But always ask for assistance if you need it!

See you soon!
