A Bit About Us

Nestled in the heart of Galway City, our boutique jewellery store has been a flourishing establishment for the past 29 years. Now run by 3 McCarthy girls our shop continues to thrive and we carry forward its legacy with passion and dedication.

McCarthy's was established 29 years ago by Peter McCarthy, who, fueled by his passion for design and entrepreneurial spirit, opened multiple jewelry stores in Mayo and Galway.

His passion and drive are carried on now by his three daughters, Dee Kate and Sarah who took over the business in 2014 and continiue to run it with as much care and love for the craft and their customers.

Since we began we have prided ourselves on bringing quality yet affordable design to the West. We stock contemporary jewellery by amazing Irish and European designers and always try to offer something different.  

We hand pick each and every piece and always aim to stock unique and exciting designs. We try to provide our customers with beautiful jewellery at great prices and we hope that our passion for jewellery is reflected in our shop.
