Activities at Amo & Pax

One of 100 Best Small Shops in Ireland

Amo & Pax included in Irish Independent's 100 Best Independent Shops in Ireland

We are genuinely delighted to be included with so many interesting, locally-owned retailers in Irish Independent’s listing of the 100 Best Small Shops in Ireland. From the best bakeries, boutiques and bookshops to vintage treasure troves, wonderful wine retailers and small speciality stores, its writers picked their favourite independent shops around the country. Read Amo & Pax piece here.

It can often feel like our streets are dominated by big international chains, with all the buying managed goodness knows where – with mass-produced product, fast fashion and carelessness regarding materials and waste. This list shows what a vibrant shopping sector we have, with inventive, dynamic entrepreneurs, artisan makers and owner-buyer-managers. It’s not an easy career path, and we celebrate them all.

So it’s an honour to be included with such a group of like-minded, independent store owners. And what a list of places to try and support: fabulous. Check out 100 Best Independent Irish Stores.

P.S. We’re also loving Amanda’s new alter ego name…

Big thanks to Orla Neligan, Bairbre Power, Katy McGuinness, Aoife Carrigy, Diarmuid Gavin, Katie Byrne, Nicola Brady and Aoife Rooney and the Indo Weekend Magazine team for pulling it together.
