The Place to Find an Array of Authentic Irish Merchandise


           Wondering where the friendliest place to shop, chat, and share stories is? In our opinion, it’s the Village Irish Shop! The owner, Eileen Hutchinson, has created a comfortable environment where you can share your appreciation for Irish heritage as well as shop for items you may not be able to find easily in America. The Village Irish Shop has been in business for over 30 years and Eileen has watched the village evolve as shops come and go. She misses the antique stores but loves all the new trendy shops that draw younger crowds to the village.

          The Village Irish Shop carries treasures for the young and old, it carries an array of authentic Irish merchandise including jewelry, fragrances, clothing, china, pottery and food. Almost everything in the shop is made in Ireland. The wide selection of Irish and Celtic designed jewelry in the shop has proven to be very popular. Scattered throughout the store, you can also find Irish woolens which bring to mind the image rolling hills of Ireland dotted with sheep. Sweaters capes and hats are some of the most commonly sold woolen goods. If you find yourself missing Ireland, you can treat your taste buds with one of the treats that fill the shelves. You’ll find HP sauce, Barry’s and Bewley’s tea bags, soda bread and some candy! Crunchies and Flake bars are candies that will surly cure the feeling of missing the lovely country where they were created. The Village Irish Shop also carries brands for your home like Belleek Pottery Collectibles and Galway Crystal. This specialty shop is sure to meet all your Irish needs!

          Although the Village Irish Shop has been in Skippack Village for over 30 years, it very recently moved to a new location this past March. Eileen’s goal in moving was to gain visibility and grow the business. Next month, the Village Irish Shop is holding a Halloween party. Eileen says the holiday was started in Ireland over 2000 years ago, so of course they must celebrate! Come in to share your stories with Eileen and celebrate soon!
