The Sweater Shop

The Sweatershop is an Irish family run business which was established in 1986 by Dom Byrne who still runs the company to this day. The Sweater Shop is truly a family affair with Dom, his daughter Laura, daughter in law Kate, sister Breege and niece Alva involved in the business!  When asked by a journalist from The Irish Times about what made his shop so special in 1986 Dom commented 'quality, value, and selection' and this remains true to this day. The Sweatershop boasts a large selection of superb quality Irish Aran knitwear including the finest selection of Authentic Irish Sweaters at reasonable prices. The Sweatershop became so popular with locals and visitors that the business quickly expanded and now there are stores all over Ireland including Dublin, Kilkenny, and Galway city.
