For over one hundred years Weirs has served the people of Dublin.

The present-day product range far exceeds the original ironmongery and sanitary ware with which William Weir opened for business in 1885.
While ironmongery, locks and key cutting are still at the core of the business, Weirs now offers the very best in giftware, candles, cut glass, electrical, cookery and those gadgets for the kitchen and house that make a visit to the store such an adventure.

At three thousand square feet Weirs of Baggot Street is amongst the largest hardware stores in the country. Naturally Irish-made goods are given priority in display and Weirs has a policy of seeking out the many smaller home manufacturers whose products are less well known and who depend for their success on the excellence of their products and their value for money.Weirs is still in the same Georgian building in which William Weir opened for business. The facade newly restored in 1998 to its original appearance represents with its elegant hand-made russet-red bricks the last flowering of the Georgian style for which Dublin is world-renowned. The sales floor itself is brightly laid out for easy shopping and for that most pleasurable of experiences - browsing.
