A famous tourist destination for over 65 years, Standún in Spiddal, County Galway is a store steeped in tradition known for its huge selection of Aran sweaters and well known Irish fashion labels.
The Standún family have owned and managed this department store for three generations and built a reputation for the range of quality Irish goods including hand knits, delicate pottery, traditional tweeds and stunning hand-cut crystal.
Standún was the first business to export the Aran sweater to the US, supplying large department stores such as Nordstrom and Lord & Taylor. At one stage there were over 700 women around the country knitting pieces of Aran sweaters that were then assembled in the store. Today, Standún still provides a selection of great value Aran sweaters.
As well as the range of Irish products available, visitors can enjoy a cup of coffee and some home baking overlooking stunning views of Galway Bay and the Aran Islands.
