Claddagh Jewellers Ltd. is situated at the lower end of Dominick Street beside the Atlanta Hotel. The n a m e of the business has been chosen for two reasons. One is its close proximity to the Claddagh and two, the family connection of its owners with the Claddagh area. The shop itself is based on a new concept of Continental and American style shops. The decor of turquoise, blue and wood panelling blends extremely well with the open plan walk around environment. Here one is quite free to m o v e about at one's leisure to view the extensive range of jewellery, plaques, charms, watches, etc. The public are invited to c o m e and see for themselves and to avail of the reduced prices which will be offered at their opening sale on all goods.
